I've done a search using as many terms as I could think of to identify this story so please forgive me if there's already a thread here....

I remember someone once telling me about a story they'd read where the main character goes back in time and kills Hitler. As a result, the Holocaust never happens, which is the desired outcome, however an unintended outcome of this is that the main character's parents never meet, and he is, therefore, never born.

This means of course that he couldn't go back in time and kill Hitler, and therefore the Holocaust happens and therefore his parents do meet after all and therefore he is born and able to go back in time and kill Hitler - thereby locking the universe and time into an irreversible pattern that repeats itself thereafter for eternity.

Does this sound familiar to anyone??

Thank you! That does sound close, doesn't it? I didn't have much to go on - just what this person told me - so I think I'll give it a try and see if that is it.

Thanks again :)
