Nietzsche's sister Elizabeth's funeral was attended by Hitler. Why?

Elizabeth and her husband were early anti-semites, and had even started an anti-semitic commune in Paraguay. These boneheads are all "the Jews are invading Germany" so let's go be white folks invading some brown lands? Always contradictory these folks.

Anyway, as Nietzsche got sick, Elizabeth took over his estate. He was not a fan of anti-semites. He did not like her husband, or anything they were up to. However, she was able to help her husband go through his work and alter parts to fit their philosophy. "Will to Power" was NOT his creation. It was theirs. He had no control or say over it. Wonderful assholes, taking advantage of the sick to co-opt your own brother's work!
