The Hitler hook grows less and less important with each generation.

Well, you couldn't prove it by my daughter.  She's 15, and she's fascinated by the question of why people do evil things, to the point where she's taking an elective next year in school called "Facing History and Ourselves", one of the main topics of which is the Holocaust.  I remember discussing Hitler and the Holocaust with her when she was maybe 8 or 9, and she read "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" in (I think) 6th grade.  Hitler really does remain relevant.

(And not just because Nazis make great action movie heavies.)
