Little Hitler Almost Drowned 

I'm a comedy writer and this is a one minute bit based on an news story said a young Adolf Hitler almost drowned when he was four. Not knowing the future, his death would have been reported as a tragedy.

The piece would be translated and read in German translated, but it DOES NOT need to be precise! BUt it needs to sound authentic. For the bit, the German will be a VO and English subtitles will be added.

NOTE: Because this would be translated, please do not worry about recording the entire text for the purposes of an audition. The first paragraph will be fine. (I only included the rest to let actors see what the rest of the joke is.) If however the artist is fluent and can easily read the entire text, great!

Thank you,

GERMAN NEWSCASTER Voice Over: (English subtitles)
… and on a sad note, a little boy’s life was cut tragically short yesterday. Four year-old Adolph Hitler, playing near a river, fell into the icy waters and drowned.

Neighbors remembered little Adolf as a peculiar boy who liked to march around the streets in an amusing goose-step gate and greet people with an odd, locked-arm salute.

They recalled his fondness for dogs, brown shirts, Wagner, and jackboots. Adolf liked to draw and his favorite colors were said to be red and black. He also had an infatuation with blond-haired, blue-eyed men, whom he referred to as “Supermen”.

Friends laughed as they recalled how little Adolf was always complaining about his sandbox not being big enough and he needed more Leben-sand . He would prattle on about His Struggle; boast that his playhouse “would last a thousand years” and tease Jewish children about having, what he called, “Das Kooties”. Little Adolph Hitler, dead at age of 4.

In other news, the Kaiser… (fade out.)

Here is the German translation of the above script
GERMAN NACHRICHTENSPRECHERIN Voice Over: (mit englischen Untertiteln)
... Und auf einem traurigen Ton, ein kleiner Junge war das Leben geschnitten tragisch kurzen gestern. Vier Jahre alte Adolph Hitler, spielen in der Nähe eines Flusses, fiel in den eisigen Gewässern und ertrank.

Neighbors erinnerte der kleine Adolf als eine besondere Junge, der in den Straßen in einem amüsanten Stechschritt Tor marschieren und grüßen die Menschen mit einer ungeraden, locked-Arm salute mochte.

Sie erinnerte sich an seine Vorliebe für Hunde, Braunhemden, Wagner und Stiefeln. Adolf gern gezeichnet und seine Lieblingsfarben wurde gesagt, rot und schwarz. Er hatte auch eine Verliebtheit mit blonden, blauäugigen Männer, die er bezeichnet als "Übermenschen".

Freunde lachten, als erinnerte sie, wie der kleine Adolf war immer beschwerte sich über seine Sandbox nicht als groß genug und er brauchte mehr Leben-Sand. Er würde plappern auf über seinen Kampf; rühmen, dass seine Spielhaus "dauern würde tausend Jahre" und necken jüdische Kinder darüber, dass, wie er es nannte, "Das Kooties". Kleine Adolph Hitler, tot zu 4 Jahren.
