J. Stalin and A. Hitler were nominated for Nobel Peace prizes


Adolf Hitler was nominated in 1939. The Nazi dictator was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1939, by a member of the Swedish parliament, an E.G.C. Brandt. Apparently though, Brandt never intended the nomination to be taken seriously. Brandt was to all intents and purposes a dedicated antifascist and had intended this nomination more as a satiric criticism of the current political debate in Sweden. However, Brandt’s satirical intentions were not well received and the nomination was withdrawn in a letter dated 1 February 1939.

Joseph Stalin, the Secretary General of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (1922-1953), was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1945 and 1948 for his efforts to end World War II.
