Thus reads the record for the Nobel committee's 1939 Peace Prize nomination for one Adolf Hitler:
Profession/Category: Chancellor and Führer of Germany.
Nominator: E.G.C. Brandt, Member of the Swedish Parliament.
Comment: The nomination was withdrawn in a letter of February 1, 1939.
What the record doesn't state: Brandt had nominated Hitler as a hoax, to protest the nomination of Britain's "master of appeasement," Neville Chamberlain.
