Cross-breeding humans can be an excellent idea. Why force a child to play an instrument when we could create one already inclined to do that, right? In fact, why not improve the mediocrity that nature has come up with (another argument against intelligent design right here)! Scientists can already see that, in principle, superhuman geniuses can be created. Imagine knowing enough about genetic engineering to the point of conceiving a person who excels at everything...
Hitler might have been right in suggesting selective breeding for humans but he was wrong and twisted about the eugenics involved. First of all, even his so called Aryan race was not pure. There is no such thing as a pure race even if appearances can be misleading. Also, a pure race does not necessarily equate with superiority. In fact, history has taught us that sometimes the opposite is quite true, eg. the Tasmanians who were quite pure but were primitive and drove themselves to extinction contrasted with the Ancient Greeks who were mixed but quite advanced and exerting hegemony.
Hitler was simply and despicably wrong. What's more, he used The Protocols of the Elders of Zion canard counterfeited by the Russian Orthodox Church in order to turn Germans against Jewry. In Mein Kampf he highlights the reasons for the pogrom of Jews, claiming that the Lord wants it to happen. His reasons for persecuting Jews were more political and religious than scientific. And contrary to popular belief, he was not an atheist. He believed he was sent by Providence (sometimes referring to this higher power as "God").

Although my father has a heart for him, I literally cannot stand him, because to me, what he did to me was unforgivable. One time he went to a family gathering, and many woman were gathering around the children (myself included) and were overprotecting them from him, and I was actually ready to deck him if he tried to hurt him.
I am sorry you were the victim of a sexual predator. That shouldn't have happened. But just know that you can always move on and lead a happy life. He is not worth your time and effort. I would also urge you to consider that not all sexual people are of the same calibre.
