Mein Kampf -the sequel.

kampf

This may surprise some of you, but I have actually read Mein Kampf. Well at least part of it, I gave up halfway through basically because it was boring. I recognized it for what it was, the ramblings of a delusional failed artist.

Mein Kampf was published on July 18, 1925 by Eher-Verlag publishin house in Munich. Eher-Verlag had actually been acquired by the NSDAP in 1920.

What many people are not aware of is that Hitler did write a ‘sequel’ to “Mein Kampf”. It was called “Zweites Buch” or in English “Second Book”. He wrote it in 1928 but was not published in his life time. Eher Verlag had advised against it since “Mein Kampf” had not sold very well. Mein Kampf really only became a ‘success’ after he got to power and everyone was more or less forced to buy it

While his first book was really about his plans for Germany and his hate for Jews and how he was going to make Germany great again. His second book went more into his foreign policies. along his hate mongering against the Jews . Below is the list of the chapters

War and Peace
The Necessity of Strife
Race and Will in the Struggle for Power
Elements of Foreign Policy
National Socialist Foreign Policy
German Needs and Aims
Policies of the Second Reich
Military Power and Fallacy of Border Restoration as Goal
Hopelessness of an Economic Situation
On Necessity for an Active Foreign Policy
Germany and Russia
German Foreign Policy
German Goals
England as an Ally
Italy as an Ally
Summary

In summer 1928 Hitlet had dictated the book to his long time friend Max Amann

max

A copy of the manuscript stayed in the vaults of Eher Verlag, and was discovered in 1945 by the US Army.

There have been many attempts to publish the book. But in 1961 a German version was published. Historian Gerhard L Weinberg discovered the manuscript in 1958.He was born in Hannover but when he was still a kid he and his parents emigrated to the US in 1938, to escape persecution.

It would take to 2003 before the first reliable English version would be published. In an interview with the Guardian , Gerhard L Weinberg stated in relation why the book should be published.

“I believe it’s critical for a work by a central historical figure, even Hitler, to be publicly accessible. The book gives an untouched window into Hitler’s views at the time. It also shows his character as a politician. He had just done badly in an election, yet his reaction was not to soft-pedal the party’s position on a critical issue. No, he insisted that he was correct all along and tried to cast himself as supremely wise, while all critics were knaves and fools.

I believe that it’s also important to have the book available in English in a way that accurately reflects the original German and is properly annotated, especially for terms, names and references that might be unclear to many readers.”

weinberg

I do tend to agree with him,because I do believe it is important to have an insight(as far as it’s possible” in the mind of undoubtedly the most evil man that has ever lived.

However I am not sure if I will read it.

The Origin of Nazi Evil

Klara

I was struggling with a title for this blog, I initially wanted to call it the Origin of Evil, but I don’t think that would reflect the truth.

If you look at the eyes of the woman in the picture, you might think they look familiar, and you would be right. The woman is Klara Pölzl Hitler, the mother of Adolf. Her eyes although lighter still bizarrely have a striking resemblance to her son’s eyes.

ah

Klara was born to Johanna  and Johann Baptist Pölzl. Klara’s mother gave birth to 11 children, of the 11 only 5 survived, 2 sons and 3 daughters.,this is all verified, Now here is where it gets a bit vague.

Johanna Pölzl(nee Hiedler or Hüttler) was the Daughter of Johann Nepomuk  Hiedler(or Hüttler) and Eva Hiedler. Johann Nepomuk was the brother of Johann Georg Hiedler, who is the most likely candidate to be Alois Hiedler’s biological father, but that was never confirmed because Alois was born out of wedlock with the name Alois Johann Schicklgruber. Johann Georg Hiedler. Legally Johan Georg was Alois’s stepfather but it is widely believed he was actually the biological father too. Alois took the bane of his Stepfather but due to a clerical error the name Hiedler, became Hitler. This would mean that Adolf Hitler’s parents were cousins.

alois

Alois was married twice before marrying Klara, he had 2 children with his second wife, Alois Jr, who was initially illegitimate,(Alois had an affair with Alois Jr”s mother while still married to his first wife)and Angela. Alois Jr’s second wife died,due to  a lung disease at the age of 23

Klara Hitler’s 6 siblings weren’t the only one to die at a young age, She herself had 6 children, 4 of whom died. Only Adolf and Paula survived.

Gustav Hitler (1885–1887), died of diphtheria
Ida Hitler (1886–1888), died of diphtheria
Otto Hitler (1892–1892), died of hydrocephalus
Edmund Hitler (1894–1900), died of measles.

I know this is probably quite a bit too take in but this is so intriguing. So many of Adolf Hitler’s family died and he survived,I just wonder what if the cards were dealt in a slightly different way.

Hoffmann,photographing the freak Hitler.

Heinrich_Hoffmann_cropped

Heinrich Hoffmann was a Nazi politician but also was Adolf Hitler’s official photographer.He was also part of the Nazi propaganda machine.

The one thing that always intrigued me is why did a man who was so close to Hitler mot see what freak he was dealing with. He must have seen that the man was clearly delusional. When he was developing the photographs in his dark room did he not see the bizarre behaviour, or was he so filled with hate and brainwashed by the Nazi ideology that he didn’t want to see.

Below are just some examples. If I wouldn’t know better and if I didn’t know who Hitler was I would have thought that these were pictures of a lunatic, a freak.

The Führer is dead. Auf nie wiedersehen.

tumblr_m3bi35LVNW1r2r773o4_1280

For all of you who don’t know German, the second part of the title translates to “that we will never see you again” It has always been a puzzle to me why the death of Adolf Hitler was not turned into a global holiday. Maybe it is because of fears it also may be used by followers of the Austrian turned German leader.

I know History Channel is airing a show celled “Hunting Hitler” aiming to proof that he didn’t die but escaped to Argentina, their investigation is omitting some key elements though, like eye witness reports of those in the bunker. They also work on the assumption that he was last seen in public on his birthday April 20 1945, this is also not true. This is the last picture taken of Hitler on April 28 1945.

htler_last_picture

Another key factor they fail to mention in the show is the fact that a day before he killed himself he got married to Eva Braun. Aside from all of that, he often said if he felt the war was lost he’d kill himself. So let’s forget about all these conspiracy therories for a while.

The world reacted in different ways on the news of his death.

The Irish Taosieach(prime minister), Éamon de Valera,  and president Douglas Hyde, bot offered condolences to Germany when the news of Hitler’s death broke.Ireland was neutral during WWII and de Valera stated he was only following diplomatic protocol.

April 22 1945-We have lost

Berlin, Garten der zerstörte Reichskanzlei

As both the Western Allies and the Soviet Red Army descended on the capital, Hitler and other prominent Nazis who had been living in the bunker.

On 16 April, the Red Army started the Battle of Berlin, and they started to encircle the city by 19 April.[22] Hitler made his last trip to the surface on 20 April, his 56th birthday, going to the ruined garden of the Reich Chancellery where he awarded the Iron Cross to boy soldiers of the Hitler Youth. That afternoon, Berlin was bombarded by Soviet artillery for the first time.

Berlin in 1945 1

Hitler was in denial about the dire situation and placed his hopes on the units commanded by Waffen-SS General Felix Steiner, the Armee abteilung Steiner (“Army Detachment Steiner”). On 21 April, Hitler ordered Steiner to attack the northern flank of the encircling Soviet salient and ordered the German Ninth Army, south-east of Berlin, to attack northward in a pincer attack. That evening, Red Army tanks reached the outskirts of Berlin. Hitler was told at his afternoon situation conference on 22 April that Steiner’s forces had not moved, and he fell into a tearful rage when he realised that the attack was not going to be carried out. He openly declared for the first time the war was lost—and he blamed his generals. Hitler announced that he would stay in Berlin until the end and then shoot himself.

htler_last_picture

Almost as confirmation of Hitler’s assessment, a Soviet mechanized corps reaches Treuenbrietzen, 40 miles southwest of Berlin, liberates a POW camp and releases, among others, Norwegian Commander in Chief Otto Ruge.

With Germany lying in ruins after six years of war, and with defeat imminent, Hitler decided to take his own life. But before doing so, he married Eva Braun and then penned his last will and testament. The next day in the afternoon on April 30, 1945 Braun and Hitler entered his living room to end their lives.hitlerbraun-56a48c923df78cf77282ef14

Happy Birthday Herr Führer-May you rot in hell.

Adolf Hitler, Kinderbild

In psychology  there is a hypothetical question that regularly comes up “If you could go back in time, knowing what you know about Hitler, would you kill the baby Adolf?”

You don’t have to answer that question to me, you can answer it to yourself. I will however give you my answer/ I would, without even blinking an eye.

Something that has always intrigued me is the notion that although I strongly believe no one is born evil, Hitler may just have been the exception. Now this is not a scientific proof but just my own theory, his evil presence or karma for the lack of a better word. may already have effected his own family.

Adolf Hitler was born on 20 April 1889 in Braunau am Inn, a town in Austria-Hungary (in present-day Austria), close to the border with the German Empire. He was christened as “Adolphus Hitler”. He was the fourth of six children born to Alois Hitler and his third wife, Klara Pölzl. Three of Hitler’s siblings—Gustav, Ida, and Otto—died in infancy.

On the morning of 3 January 1903, Hitler’s Father Alois went to the Gasthaus Wiesinger (no. 1 Michaelsbergstrasse, Leonding) as usual to drink his morning glass of wine.

Alois_Hitler_in_his_last_years

He was offered the newspaper and promptly collapsed. He was taken to an adjoining room and a doctor was summoned, but Alois Hitler died at the inn, probably from a pleural hemorrhage.

When Alois died in 1903, he left a government pension. Klara,Adolf’s Mother, sold the house in Leonding and moved with young Adolf and Paula to an apartment in Linz, where they lived frugally.

In 1906, Klara Hitler discovered a lump in her breast but initially ignored it. After experiencing chest pains that were keeping her awake at night, she finally consulted the family doctor, Eduard Bloch, in January 1907. She had been busy with her household, she said, so had neglected to seek medical aid. Dr. Bloch chose not to inform Klara that she had breast cancer and left it to her son Adolf to inform her. She died on December 21, 1907 age 47.Klara_Hitler

Henri Ford was a great admirer of Hitler and vice versa. In 1938 Henry Ford received the Grand Cross of the German Eagle from Nazi officials. It is also alleged that Henri Ford sent a personal cheque of $50,000 to Hitler on his birthday for several years.

henry_ford_grand_cross_1938

The picture below is of  Goering, Keitel, and Himmler wishing Hitler a happy Birthday on April 20th, 1941. Just over 4 years later they would thankfully all be dead.

On 20 April, his 56th birthday, Hitler made his last trip from the Führerbunker (Führer’s shelter) to the surface. In the ruined garden of the Reich Chancellery, he awarded Iron Crosses to boy soldiers of the Hitler Youth, who were now fighting the Red Army at the front near Berlin.

At his last public appearance on April 25,1945 he Hitler decorated more  members of  the “Hitler Jugend”

Taught to Hate-The Führer as Role model

51697f7f2bf23fa9d0035e6bc7bce2b0

There are 2 indisputable facts when it comes to the youngest members of society.

  1. A child is born with no state of mind, a baby does not know how to hate or how to love, he/she is taught how to do both and is conditioned to the environment he or she grows up in.
  2. He who has the youth has the future.

Hitler was aware for his ideology to work on a large scale it needed to be indoctrinated from a very young age. The Nazi regime needed to have full control of life cycle from cradle to grave. 1157510476b8864a8ee6bc556192e70b

So many parents. often misguided, trusted Hitler and believed every word he said, they had therefore no issues with putting him on a pedestal as a role model for their children. They did not see that in fact Hitler could not care less about their children. Eventually he would only use them for his own plans. Plans of hate and destruction, if that meant he had to sacrifice them,then so be it.

2c184189b599ba244c6b7a26c316f25f

So many saw him as a God and failed to see he was more of a Satan. Willing to sacrifice anyone to further his own cause and to pursue his twisted ideology.bf83e40c440f674d0693aa49fadb276d

As casualties mounted during the Second World War, Germany was forced to call up ever younger conscripts to fill the ranks of the Wehrmacht. So dire was the situation at the end of 1944, that boys born in 1928 were called up to serve the Fatherland. They were 15 or 16 years old and had grown up in the shadow of Nazism.One of these young soldiers was Willi Hübner, a 16-year-old messenger with the Führer Grenadier Division.

The banality of evil. I don’t know who these kids are, but I am sure they did not realize the man behind them was responsible for killing children if their age. And if the time was ripe he would have expected them to do likewise.bcd1a36c51c5b6ace096d1764615a484

The Gemlich letter-Hitler’s first letter of hate.

0608-wires-hitlerletter

Dated 16 September 1919, the ‘Gemlich letter’ is the first known written statement of Hitler’s Antisemitism.

It a letter written by Adolf Hitler at the behest of Karl Mayr to Adolf Gemlich, a German army soldier. The letter, written in 1919 in response to a request for clarification on the Jewish question.

(Karl Mayr in uniform seen to the left of Minister of Defence Gustav Norske at the Continental Hotel in Munich)mayr_main

Written on a German army typewriter, Hitler’s letter has long been known to scholars. It is considered significant because it demonstrates how early he was forming his anti-Semitic views.

Hitler, who had been wounded during the First World War, returned to Munich in September 1919 to an army Intelligence and propaganda unit of the Reichswehr which was run by Captain Karl Mayr who assigned him to write a response to Adolf Gemlich’s question on the army’s position on the Jewish Question. Hitler’s response, dated 16 September 1919, was either written by him or dictated by him and subsequently typed by another.Two copies of the letter are thought to exist. One in the Bavarian state archives in Munich which is typewritten but unsigned, and the second at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, also typewritten but signed by Hitler.

sIGNATURE hITLER

The second version, now believed to be the original, was discovered in a Nuremberg archive by a William F Ziegler, who brought it to the United States where it ended up in a private collection. In 1990, Charles Hamilton, the handwriting expert, authenticated the signature on the letter and, in 2011 it was purchased by the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Simon-Wiesenthal-1

Below is the English translation of the letter. I refer to it in the title as his first letter of hate, I am sure he will have written more hateful letters but this would be the first in a wider political context.

16 September 1919

“Dear Herr Gemlich,

The danger posed by Jewry for our people today finds expression in the undeniable aversion of wide sections of our people. The cause of this aversion is not to be found in a clear recognition of the consciously or unconsciously systematic and pernicious effect of the Jews as a totality upon our nation. Rather, it arises mostly from personal contact and from the personal impression which the individual Jew leaves­­ almost always an unfavorable one. For this reason, antisemitism is too easily characterized as a mere emotional phenomenon. And yet this is incorrect. Antisemitism as a political movement may not and cannot be defined by emotional impulses, but by recognition of the facts. The facts are these: First, Jewry is absolutely a race and not a religious association. Even the Jews never designate themselves as Jewish Germans, Jewish Poles, or Jewish Americans but always as German, Polish, or American Jews. Jews have never yet adopted much more than the language of the foreign nations among whom they live. A German who is forced to make use of the French language in France, Italian in Italy, Chinese in China does not thereby become a Frenchman, Italian, or Chinaman. It’s the same with the Jew who lives among us and is forced to make use of the German language. He does not thereby become a German. Neither does the Mosaic faith, so important for the survival of this race, settle the question of whether someone is a Jew or non­ Jew. There is scarcely a race whose members belong exclusively to just one definite religion.

3376887

Through thousands of years of the closest kind of inbreeding, Jews in general have maintained their race and their peculiarities far more distinctly than many of the peoples among whom they have lived. And thus comes the fact that there lives amongst us a non­ German, alien race which neither wishes nor is able to sacrifice its racial character or to deny its feeling, thinking, and striving. Nevertheless, it possesses all the political rights we do. If the ethos of the Jews is revealed in the purely material realm, it is even clearer in their thinking and striving. Their dance around the golden calf is becoming a merciless struggle for all those possessions we prize most highly on earth.

 

The value of the individual is no longer decided by his character or by the significance of his achievements for the totality but exclusively by the size of his fortune, by his money.

The loftiness of a nation is no longer to be measured by the sum of its moral and spiritual powers, but rather by the wealth of its material possessions.

This thinking and striving after money and power, and the feelings that go along with it, serve the purposes of the Jew who is unscrupulous in the choice of methods and pitiless in their employment. In autocratically ruled states he whines for the favor of “His Majesty” and misuses it like a leech fastened upon the nations. In democracies he vies for the favor of the masses, cringes before the “majesty of the people,” and recognizes only the majesty of money.

He destroys the character of princes with byzantine flattery, national pride (the strength of a people), with ridicule and shameless breeding to depravity. His method of battle is that public opinion which is never expressed in the press but which is nonetheless managed and falsified by it. His power is the power of money, which multiplies in his hands effortlessly and endlessly through interest, and which forces peoples under the most dangerous of yokes. Its golden glitter, so attractive in the beginning, conceals the ultimately tragic consequences. Everything men strive after as a higher goal, be it religion, socialism, democracy, is to the Jew only means to an end, the way to satisfy his lust for gold and domination.

In his effects and consequences he is like a racial tuberculosis of the nations.

The deduction from all this is the following: an antisemitism based on purely emotional grounds will find its ultimate expression in the form of the pogrom.[1] An antisemitism based on reason, however, must lead to systematic legal combating and elimination of the privileges of the Jews, that which distinguishes the Jews from the other aliens who live among us (an Aliens Law). The ultimate objective [of such legislation] must, however, be the irrevocable removal of the Jews in general.

For both these ends a government of national strength, not of national weakness, is necessary.

franz-schwarx-julius-schaub-famous-speech-adolf-hitler-christian-weber-jakob-grimminger-karl-fiehler-gregor-strasser-max-amann-300x225

The Republic in Germany owes its birth not to the uniform national will of our people but the sly exploitation of a series of circumstances which found general expression in a deep, universal dissatisfaction. These circumstances however were independent of the form of the state and are still operative today. Indeed, more so now than before. Thus, a great portion of our people recognizes that a changed state­form cannot in itself change our situation. For that it will take a rebirth of the moral and spiritual powers of the nation.

And this rebirth cannot be initiated by a state leadership of irresponsible majorities, influenced by certain party dogmas, an irresponsible press, or internationalist phrases and slogans. [It requires] instead the ruthless installation of nationally minded leadership personalities with an inner sense of responsibility.

But these facts deny to the Republic the essential inner support of the nation’s spiritual forces. And thus today’s state leaders are compelled to seek support among those who draw the exclusive benefits of the new formation of German conditions, and who for this reason were the driving force behind the revolution­­the Jews. Even though (as various statements of the leading personalities reveal) today’s leaders fully realized the danger of Jewry, they (seeking their own advantage) accepted the readily proffered support of the Jews and also returned the favor. And this pay­off consisted not only in every possible favoring of Jewry, but above all in the hindrance of the struggle of the betrayed people against its defrauders, that is in the repression of the antisemitic movement.

Respectfully,

Adolf Hitler.”

The aforementioned Karl Mayr did not fare well under Hitler’s regime. Mayr in 1921 was a Nazi Party supporter, but later became a critic. In 1925 he joined the SPD. Subsequently he was the leader of the Reichsbanner Schwarz-Rot-Gold, an SPD paramilitary force.

Verfassungsfeier, Hörsing vor dem Berliner Schloss

In the early 1930s, Mayr collected among other things, information on Georg Bell, an associate of Ernst Röhm, and other material against the Nazi Party, which he leaked in the Social Democratic press. After 1933, Karl Mayr emigrated to France. After the German invasion of France in 1940, he was arrested in Paris by the Gestapo. Mayr was taken back to Germany and was incarcerated in Sachsenhausen concentration camp until 1943, when he was transferred to Buchenwald concentration camp and forced to work at the Gustloff ammunition plant, where on 9 February 1945 he was killed.

What if Henry Tandey had taken that shot.

henry-tandey

Most of you will never have heard of the soldier called Henry Tandey, but this very soldier could have allegedly changed the course of history by carrying out one action. It could actually be disputed he changed the course of history by not firing that one shot.

Henry Tandey   was an English recipient of the Victoria Cross, the highest award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces. He was the most highly decorated British private of the First World War.

On Sept. 28, 1918, one of the greatest mysteries of World War I is said to have taken place. During the fifth battle of Ypres, near the French village of Marcoing, 27-year-old Henry Tandey earned the Victoria Cross, which along with other medals, made him the highest decorated private of the First World War.

Q 57546

But during the battle, a wounded and defenseless Austrian soldier i the German army stumbled into Tandey’s line of fire. Though he had his gun pointed right at him, Tandey decided not to kill him. This one act of compassion would forever overshadow his military record.

British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain would be the first to hear about this story from the German that Private Tandey had spared. His name was Adolf Hitler.

hitler-military-uniform

Apparently Hitler identified the soldier carrying the wounded man as Tandey from the photo of him in the newspaper clipping he had obtained in 1918.[16]

In 1938, when Neville Chamberlain visited Hitler at his alpine retreat, the Berghof, for the discussions that led to the Munich Agreement, he noticed the painting and asked about it. Hitler replied:

“That man came so near to killing me that I thought I should never see Germany again; Providence saved me from such devilishly accurate fire as those English boys were aiming at us.”

Although the story is disputed by some, but Tandey heard the story from an officer who had, in turn, heard the story from Chamberlain. Tandey admitted he had spared soldiers on the 28 Sept. but could not confirm if Hitler was one of them.

adolf-hitler-ww1

When the Coventry Herald interviewed him in 1939, he said: “According to them, I’ve met Adolf Hitler. Maybe they’re right but I can’t remember him.”

A year later he seemed more certain. “If only I had known what he would turn out to be. When I saw all the people and women and children he had killed and wounded I was sorry to God I let him go.”

What if he had just taken that shot.

Disobeying the Führer

htler_last_picture

Even one of his last acts Hitler showed he was nothing else but a fraud on the 19th of March 1945  he issued the “Nero Decree”

The decree ordered the destruction of German infrastructure to prevent their use by Allied forces as they penetrated deep within Germany. It was officially titled Demolitions on Reich Territory Decree (Befehl betreffend Zerstörungsmaßnahmen im Reichsgebiet) and has subsequently become known as the Nero Decree, after the Roman Emperor Nero, who supposedly engineered the Great Fire of Rome.

while rome burns

Hitler had copied so much of the Roman empire so it is not surprising that the decree had similarities with Nero’s orders.

It was up to Albert Speer to implement and carry out the decree, but on this occasion Speer refused and disobeyed the order. I don’t think it was because of his endless love for the German people, I think it was more out of self preservation that Speer disobeyed, he knew the war was coming to an end and he still had a chance to escape punishment by the allies. however if he would have carried out the orders he would surely have been sentenced to death by either the Germans or the allies after the war.

Bundesarchiv_Bild_183-1984-1206-511,_Albert_Speer

Albert Speer was not the only one who directly disobeyed Hitler in relation to destroying cities.

Shortly before the Liberation of Paris, Hitler ordered explosives to be placed around important landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower, and key transportation hubs. If the Allies came near the city, the military governor, Dietrich von Choltitz was to detonate these bombs, leaving Paris “lying in complete debris.”Von Choltitz, however, did not carry out the order and surrendered to the Allies.

How great would it have been if this picture would have been sent to the Führer as a birthday card.
