    Hitler was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1938. Leading the campaign for years was the renowned author, Gertrude Stein.
    As early as 1934, she told a reporter that Hitler should be awarded the Nobel peace prize:

    "I say that Hitler ought to have the peace prize, because he is removing all the elements of contest and of struggle from Germany. By driving out the Jews and the democratic and Left element, he is driving out everything that conduces to activity. That means peace ... By suppressing Jews ... he was ending struggle in Germany" (New York Times Magazine, May 6, 1934).
