Nostradamus makes reference to a figure known as Hister, ... Hister was proclaimed as an anti-christ in the prophecies, who would rule the world, this is one of the pieces of Nostradamus's work which was used.

In addition to providing evidence for your claim "this is one of the pieces of Nostradamus's work which was used [in Nazi leaflets]", please could you provide evidence for your claim "Hister was proclaimed as an anti-christ in the prophecies". According to wiki, Hister was merely the name for a river, and the relevant quatrain makes no reference to any anti-christ. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hister

Oh, and evidence that these Nazi leaflets linked this Hister/anti-christ to Hitler would be good also. Afterall your original claim was: "Hitler also dropped leaflets proclaiming himself as an anti-christ".
