Well...We all make mistakes, and it is not okay to attack someone "personally" even if we got it wrong sometimes. It is like you can make a stupid mistake, but you are not stupid.

Back to Elisabeth, I wonder if her letters to her cousins were ever published. I would think Ernie kept them in tact (abid the Victoria tradition of keeping everything as it was).

Elisabeth's story is so touching and tragic - she would have been 38 when Hitler came to power - would she have joined the Nazi Party like some of her Imperial relatives?

Possibly, like most German royals joined the Nazis out of popularly and turned a blind eye to the complete wrong doing of the nazis.

By the time of WW2 Elisabeth may have been married to a foreign Prince and not living in Germany.

I wouldn't really be sure of that since it didn't happen and also kinda silly of us to play the "What if" game knowing that Elisabeth died at eight years old.

What-if's are a valid historical exercise and many Hessian-Damstadt former royals did join the Nazis

i DO agree because through playing "what if " games we indulge in some speculations that lead nowhere. especially when we talk about a girl whoe life ended at 8.

Yes. It is fun to speculate, but in the end produce no answers.

And all "what if" discussions must be at the Having Fun section.

I totally agree with Sveta because answering WHAT IF questions does not provide you with any valuable info.
