Who is more known today?

Hitler or Ghandi?

I would say Hitler to this American. The reasoning is the time difference, European culture is more empirical to Americans, and he was a symbol of atrocious acts which have repercussions today.

Ghandi. His methods were useful in the promotion of peace and he discovered ways to beat a tyrannical system. His Indian heritage blinds us to his achievements.
