Hitler and Lenin playing chess?

I'm pretty skeptical that this 1909 etching of a young Adolf Hitler and an exiled V.I. Lenin playing chess in Vienna is authentic, or at least what they claim it is, but it would be pretty cool if it was.

In other Hitler news did anybody read Pat Buchanan's piece making the case that Germany never wanted war but was forced into it by Britain and France? Now, it's not exactly surprising to see Pat sympathizing with the Third Reich, but it's worth noting. Apparently if Hitler was left alone the Nazis would have taken a tiny piece of land and lived happily ever after with the Jews. Or something.
