I dont remember where I heard this, so I can't confirm whether it's true or not: Esperanto speakers were targeted during the Holocaust, because Hitler thought that the Jews could use Esperanto to take over the world. When the Nazis would confront people for speaking Esperanto, they would tell them they are actually practicing Italian, and the Nazis often believed them.
