Things you were not told about Adolf Hitler and National-Socialist Germany
visiting these places, you can easily understand how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that
surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived.”
– John F. Kennedy
Hitler was raised in a middle class family, and during the early years of his life his family even went through
a difficult period of starvation. After being a soldier in World War I, on January 30th 1933, he found himself
head of the German government, fulfilling the dream of every poor and middle class person who ever sought to make
We are all familiar with the story of Hitler that the United States would like you
to believe. Hitler has been made out to be one of the most “evil” people to have ever lived, slaughtering
millions of innocent Jews. This same story has been echoed throughout Hollywood for decades, and by now it’s
safe to say billions of dollars have been spent to convince you of this black and white, good vs evil perspective
about the National-Socialist regime. What if it isn’t entirely accurate?
the work of others who have documented history in an unbiased fashion, as well as those who have interviewed people
who worked and lived alongside Hitler, there is strong evidence to suggest that what we’ve been told is extremely
inaccurate. A completely new examination of Hitler and National-Socialist Germany during World War II is required,
and from this examination a different story is sure to emerge.
Here are 12 things you were not told
about Adolf Hitler and National-Socialist Germany:
Broke Free from the International Banking Cartels
When Hitler’s period as Chancellor
of Germany began, the German people had no work, no money and were starving. A wheelbarrow full of 100 billion-mark
banknotes could not buy a loaf of bread at the time, and many Germans were living in shacks after countless homes
and farms had been seized by Rothschild/Rockefeller-controlled banks.
In his 1967 book
The Magic of Money, Hitler’s Reichsbank President, Dr. Hjalmar Horace Greeley Schacht, let out the big secret:
“The mark’s dramatic devaluation began soon after the Reichsbank was “privatized,”
or delivered to private investors.”
In other words, responsible for the post-war
hyperinflation was not the German government, but rather the privately owned central bank in Germany, and its monopoly
it had over the creation of money. Germany’s economy was crashed and devastated by bankers… that
is, until Hitler arrived.
After Hitler was elected, refusing to play ball with the
Rockefeller-Rothschild rules, one of the first things he did was fix the corrupt, debt-based financial system. By completely
thwarting the international banking cartels, the National-Socialist government issued its own currency known as
Reich Marchs, which were debt free and uncontrollable by international financial interests.
Debt Free Finance = Freedom
If America nationalized their
currency as Hitler did for Germany, they would effectively sever all ties with international bankers, the manipulation
of their government and economy would cease, and they would live debt-free. Just as Hitler issued debt-free currency
for Germany, Abraham Lincoln setup an interest free banking system in the United States when he was President, and
he was murdered for it. Former US president Andrew Jackson issued interest-free currency, and two shots were fired
at his head in an assassination attempt, but the shots misfired and he survived. John F. Kennedy issued interest-free
currency during his presidency and we all know how he met his untimely demise.
public banking system was installed, world Jewry responded by declaring war on Germany, including a global boycott
of German goods. Within two years, the German economy was flourishing with its new-found stable, and inflation-free
2. Hitler Created a Thriving Economy with No Unemployment
After setting up a public banking system, Hitler began his reign by constructing new roads, bridges, dams,
canals, port facilities, and much needed repair of public and private buildings.
Everything was done
with public money that owed no interest to the International “Banksters”. As Hitler said, “For
every Mark issued, we required the equivalent of a Mark’s worth of work done, or goods produced.”
Next, the NATIONAL-SOCIALIST government encouraged women to be homemakers, and all the work being done
to repair and improve the country’s infrastructure and transportation created jobs for men. The unemployment
problem had been solved within only two years, and Germany was back on its feet.
been claimed, that Hitler’s success in reviving his nation’s economy was based largely on government
spending for rearmament. This is a myth. As the renowned British historian A. J. P. Taylor noted: “Germany’s
economic recovery, which was complete by 1936, did not rest on rearmament; it was caused mainly by lavish expenditure
on public works, particularly on motor roads, and this public spending stimulated private spending also, as [British
economist John Maynard] Keynes had said it would. …while nearly everyone else in Europe expected a great
war, Hitler was the one man who neither expected nor planned for it.” – A. J. P. Taylor, From Sarajevo
to Potsdam (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1975), p. 140.
3. Hitler Emphasized Respect for Women, Children and Strong Family Values
the economic hardship just before Hitler was elected, Germany was seeing a declining rate of birth. In 1933,
hitler passed a law that enabled married couples to obtain interest free loans minimum 1000 Reich Marks (equal
to 9 months salary) to set up homes and start families.
For each child birthed, the couple was
allowed to keep 250 marks and did not have to repay it. This system pioneered by the National-Socialist government
exists today in Switzerland. In the eyes of Nazis, women were viewed as the preservers of the tribe, the guardians
of future generations, and the priestesses of domestic virtue.
that families are the primary unit around which a functioning society is built, Hitler emphasized the principle of
maintaining a strong bond among family members. Admired for his high regard for mother’s, families were
inspired and strengthened under the leadership of Hitler.
Poor families were helped by using financial
incentives, and family allowances, marriage loans and child subsidies were provided equally to each and every segment
4. National-Socialist Preservation of Environment and Animals
the National-Socialist regime, mishandling an animal was considered a heinous crime, and if somebody was discovered
mistreating an animal, they were sent to [work] camps. As someone with great admiration for animals, Hitler showed
great concern for animals native to Germany, and passed laws that ensured their safety and well-being.
In 1934, Hitler passed a law called Das Reichsjagdgesetz (the Reich Hunting Law), which regulated how many
animals could be killed per year, and to establish proper ‘hunting seasons’. This law has now been
adopted by most western countries.
Animal conservation was included in Primary, Secondary and College
levels, and in 1935, the Reichsnaturschutzgesetz (Reich Nature Protection Act) was passed. which placed several
native species on a protection list including the wolf and Eurasian lynx. It is likely that this law saved some
native forest-inhabiting species from going extinct.
The Nazi’s were also the first
to create environmental protection laws in history. The German Imperial Conservation law of 1935 was passed, which
protected “remaining portions of landscape in free nature whose preservation on account of rarity, beauty,
distinctiveness or on account of scientific, ethnic, forest, or hunting significance lies in the general interest.”
“[It is] useful to know the laws of nature – for that enables us to obey them.
To act otherwise would be to rise in revolt against heaven.”
– Adolf Hitler
Hitler was a well-known lover of animals.
Banned Experimentation on Animals (Vivisection)
Germany was the first country in the world to ban vivisection, or any experimentation on live animals. With its
great concern for animal conservation, and human treatment, a complete ban of vivisection was enacted in April
The Prime Minister of Prussia Hermann Goring has said:
and permanent ban on vivisection is not only a necessary law to protect animals and to show sympathy with their
pain, but it is also a law for humanity itself…. I have therefore announced the immediate prohibition of
vivisection and have made the practice a punishable offense in Prussia. Until such time as punishment is pronounced
the culprit shall be lodged in a concentration camp.”
(Above) This German cartoon depicts
animals that were saved from vivisection saluting Hermann Goring. The sign in the window reads “Vivisection
6. Hitler Funded Research into “Free
was well aware that in order to truly escape the stronghold of economic manipulation by the international banking
cartel he would need to find a way to eliminate Germany’s dependence on oil. An inexhaustible source of energy
that was not monopolized by the private money cartels was required for true sovereignty, and this is what Hitler
This pursuit led Germany to develop what has been called The Nazi Bell, which
is described by author Joseph P. Farrell as “a hyper-dimensional physics device being researched under the auspices
of the SS departments Entwicklungstelle-IV, Forschung, Entwicklung, und Patente, and SS General Hans Kammler’s
super-secret weapons black projects think-tank, the Kammlerstab.“
According to Farrell,
“the mission brief of the Entwicklungstelle IV was to develop free energy and to make Germany independent
of foreign oil.”
The National-Socialist Bell was designed, in Farrell’s estimation, for a threefold
A Weapon of Tremendous Power
In his book Babylon’s Banksters, Joseph P. Farrell points to evidence that after the War, the United
States made every effort to reconstruct the personnel team that worked on the National-Socialist Bell, so that they
could develop the technology for themselves and restore the balance of power between “National-Socialist International”
and “Anglo-American” elite factions.
Workers Were Well-Treated
the goal of enhancing the standard of living for all German citizens equally, Adolf Hitler stimulated the spirit
of integrity, comradeship and happiness, by funding numerous worker’s welfare programs including:
– Highly Subsidized International vacation trips.
– 134,000 theater and concert events
for 32 million people (Between 1933-1938). 2 million people went on cruises, and – 11 million went on theater
– Every citizen was given a radio.
– A 5 day work week for all citizens.
Free Public Health.
– Hitler’s government banned Trade Unions, and it was mandatory that
all workers had to join the German labor Front trade union.
– Every large factory had to provide rest areas, cafeterias, dressing rooms, even playing fields
and swimming pools for its workers.
During the Third Reich, German workers were better treated
than at any time before, or since.
8. Organized Industrial Production & Farming
As opposed to the current American economy, where production is driven by the pursuit of maximum profit,
Hitler initiated a policy of self-sufficiency, where the goal was to produce only what is required by Germans.
The goal of the National-Socialist government was to produce for its country everything the German people needed
without having to rely on imports to meet the needs of its citizens.
Along with the
calculated production of material goods, new policies were introduced so that the aim of farming was to produce
what German’s needed, not what was most profitable. The government subsidized the farmers for loss of profit
and farmers were given guarantees that all of what was grown would be purchased.
Eliminated Crime and Improved Health of Germans
By giving social misfits and
criminals jobs, Adolf Hitler was able to reduce the crime rate in Germany. In his 1976 book The Twelve-Year Reich,
author R. Grunberger stated that there were significant drops in the rates of murder, robbery, theft, embezzlement
and petty larceny during the Hitler years.
Many foreigners were impressed by the improved
outlook and health of Germans, including Sir Arnold Wilson, a British M.P. who visited Germany seven times after
Hitler came to power.
“Infant mortality has been greatly reduced and is considerably inferior to
that in Great Britain,” wrote Wilson. “Tuberculosis and other diseases have noticeably diminished.
The criminal courts have never had so little to do and the prisons have never had so few occupants. It is a pleasure
to observe the physical aptitude of the German youth. Even the poorest persons are better clothed than was formerly
the case, and their cheerful faces testify to the psychological improvement that has been wrought within them.”
10. No Citizen Will Starve or Freeze
canister used for collections during the Winter Relief Fund.
A prime philosophy of Germany
at the time was that all citizens should share the same standard of living. With this in mind, National-Socialist
Germany boasted one of the largest public welfare programs in history with the slogan “None shall starve
nor freeze”. Every year, high-ranking Nazi’s and citizens would take to the streets to collect charity
for the unfortunate, which generated a feeling of comradeship toward those in need.
went to the extent of publishing names of those who didn’t give charity in the paper as a punishment or
reminder of their neglect. According to Mark Weber of the Institute for Historical Review,
“On one occasion, a civil servant was prosecuted for failure to donate, and his argument that it
was voluntary was dismissed on the grounds it was an extreme view of liberty, to neglect all duties not actually
prescribed by law, and therefore an abuse of liberty.”
National-Socialist Anti-Tobacco Mission
doctors were the first to write a major scientific paper linking smoking to lung cancer. Following this report,
smoking was banned in restaurants and public transportation systems. Advertising of smoking and cigarettes was
severely regulated by the Nazis, and tobacco tax was raised to deter people from smoking. In what was one of the
most expensive and effective anti-tobacco movements in history, numerous German health organizations began educating
the public that risks of miscarriage were heightened when pregnant women engaged in smoking.
National-Socialist Anti-Tobacco Ad: “He does not devour it, it [the cigarette] devours him!”
In the year 1940, while annual cigarette consumption per capita in America was over 3,000, in Germany it
was only 749.
Hitler prohibited the sale of cigarettes to women.
Hitler prohibited smoking
for people under the age of 18.
Hitler prohibited smoking for people in uniforms.
prohibited smoking in public areas.
Hitler was the first to place “warning” photos
of cancerous lungs on cigarette boxes.
12. National-Socialists Created
a Culture that Cherished Music
Recognizing the importance weaving music into the fabric
of a country rich in culture, Hitler founded the State Music Institute in 1933 after he came into power. Its purpose
was to promote the timeless work of composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, Wagner, among others. The Nazis
ensured that every German citizen had a radio.
Youngsters were encouraged by the National-Socialist
government to pursue music as a career in order to preserve the rich ancient German cultural heritage.
10 Reason why Hitler was one of the Good Guys – by Digger
All these points are verifiable. They just take a bit of objective, independent research.
1/. He never wanted to kill any Jews
you hear anyone espouse (repeat) the lies about Hitler the nasty Jew-killer. Please always make a point of asking
this very simple question: “Where did you get that information from?”
Perhaps we all at
some point have repeated this fable. Why would we not, when it’s shoved down our throats 24/7, year in year
out for decades(?) There hasn’t been a man on this planet who has been demonized as much as Herr Hitler.
If Hitler wanted to kill Jews, why oh why throughout all his speeches and manuscripts and his book Mein
Kampf did he not mention this? Did he just forget? No, he didn’t say or write it BECAUSE HE HAD NO INTENTION
OF KILLING THE JEWS.
No matter what amount of destruction he had observed done by the Jews to
his people; he had enough self-discipline and ethical code not to take revenge. Being a strong character, he was
able to rise above the darkness, the demonic standards of the Judaic mindset and show self-restraint and humility.
That is why he created ‘containment work camps’ for the Jews and certainly NOT death camps.
2/. He cared about conditions for the Jews in the work camps
to billions of people the Nazi camps were not death camps, nor were they places to carry out human experiments.
They were simply containment camps. Something had to be done with these destructive anti-social Jews who were strangling
Germany. Thanks to the Jews, Germany had lost it’s moral code and had become debased and de-cultured, does
that ring a bell?
Something had to be done! And Hitler did do something – he placed all
the Jews in containment camps to allow Germany to breath again. But – this is the key point in this essay/piece.
He did it in a way which was ethical. The camps had decent sufficient food (bearing in mind it was war time), they
had theaters, swimming pools, football pitches, post offices where inmates could communicate to the outside world,
kindergartens, art and music recreation and even prostitutes.
Quality sanitation within the camps was
paramount and that is why the inmates clothes were regularly de-loused with Zyklon B gas. There were no human gas
chambers……THAT IS A BIG FAT KOSHER LIE; to which the world has had to endure for over half a century.
My theory is that if there had not have been a war effort, Hitler would not have even made the Jews work.
AND I bet you the containment camps would have been luxury rehabilitation centers. In order to slowly de-programme
the Jews from their mind control cult.
3/. He had compassion for other
historians claim he was a vegetarian. I believe this is true, but whether it is or not, the point is he had a
clear connection and affection for his fellow creatures. I’m not suggesting just because he may have been
a veggie that therefore he was a good person; but this was a man of compassion and that he recognised the importance
of compassion in society. He had so much affection for his German shepherds (picture below with his beloved dog).
He banned all animal experimentation, recognising it to be evil. Hitler could see the connection between all life
forms. It was his level of consciousness. Respect for nature, animals and human life.
4/. He tried
to prevent the destruction of his fellow Europeans
Numerous occasions Hitler tried
to warn and assist his fellow brethren about the Jewish trap they had fallen for and who really was behind all
the warmonger. He dropped fliers from planes trying in vein to prevent Germany and Britain fighting. He initially
wanted to make alliances with Britain. Many occasions he gave opportunities to opposing European forces, where he could
have slaughtered them. It was his internal spiritual angst for him to be fighting (defending) amongst his European
brothers and sisters. He did all he could to avoid war, he was not the warmonger we all have been led to believe.
5/. He cared passionately about his people and German heritage
observed the degrading machinations of the Jews in Austria and Germany. It not only disgusted and angered him,
but saddened him to see how these two nations were being destroyed from the inside out like a cancer – a
cancer that his sleepy folksmen could not see. The exact same angst those of us who are Jew-conscious find ourselves
in. He was a man who cared about society, a man who cared about culture, who cared about nature, about moral values
and about building and improving as opposed to destroying and degrading.
He was a man who
had fought for his country, in the trenches and been hospitalized for his country. How many of our sell out politicians
today can claim that? He was a true spokesman of the people, for the people who had diligently worked his way
up from grass roots. From microcosmic pep talks to his fellow workman on building sites, to talks in beer houses,
to speeches in basements, to town halls. As well as all the behind-the-scenes work and risks. Slung in jail,
mocked and defamed. Endless tireless work to resolve the destruction of his peoples.
I would also strongly
suggest he cared about all peoples. Yes, including black people, despite the kosher myth he was a supremacist racist.
6/. He was a humble man, from a humble background
any of us name one present western politician who can claim that these days? No, today they’re all criminals,
fed through the kosher criminal system. All built on materialistic gain and kudos. All content with serving the
beast for their demonic and self-serving interests. Their greed and hubris having no boundaries.
Hitler worked on building sites as a laborer for crying out loud. How many of these leaches under the
guise of politicians do you know have that background? He was also a humble street artist, barely scraping a living
together. Some days he had to decide whether to spend his meager earnings on a political book, or to eat –
he opted for the former. Now that is passion in politics and a drive for social reform.
He held correspondence with Mahatma Gandhi
This alone doesn’t necessarily
suggest he was a good person. But more that Gandhi and Hitler were in alignment on many issues. They both recognized
the evil force they were up against and both were coming from a humanitarian position. The bottom line is Gandhi
would not have corresponded with a so-called evil mad dictator hell bent on wanting to kill the Jews and rule the
8/. He was a man of God
Hitler was NOT
an atheist – despite what the Jewish propaganda machine wants us to believe. He often made references to
God and spoke in terms of a Divinity. He was somebody who could clearly make the connection between Divine law and
Natural laws. He was spiritually and morally driven throughout all his political career. Read his book Mein Kampf
to see his consistent reference to Christian values.
9/. He implemented cultural and
Throughout Hitler’s political career, his common theme was about ‘cleaning
up’. He had seen the filth the Jews had created and desperately wanted Germany to reverse these degrading
trends. He banned supermarkets, because he wanted local small businesses to prosper. He banned degrading modern
art, as he recognised it for what it was. He banned vivisection (animal experiments), because in his wisdom he could
see how futile and unnecessary they were.
He encouraged healthy youth activities and social
programmes to enhance cultural pride and individual self worth, such as sports and recreational activities. He
encouraged men to be men and women to be feminine. He helped develop beauty, cleanliness and pride back into the
10/. He stamped on usury / eliminated debt slavery
subject links in most of the points in this list and what Hitler achieved as a leader. But I thought it was essential
that this topic was highlighted in isolation, as it was probably the single most important act of bravery and compassion
Hitler offered to his people. Unfortunately this act alone was enough to piss off the Jewish IMF and therefore
Usury is the elite Jews most powerful and demonic weapon amongst their whole
armament of destructive weapons. More powerful than their poisons and even their mind control techniques. Because
it’s their use of compound interest that enables them to create a stranglehold on every industry and therefore
every level of society. Nobody can escape usury – everybody is infected by it.
why Hitler created his own independent currency as a first move when he came to power. And hey presto –
that is why Germany was able to get back on it’s feet and flourish as all nations should. Hitler recognised
the judaic invention of usury as unlawful, ungodly and unnatural – and as a talmudic curse which has crippled
every host nation the Jews have entered into and ultimately, that which brings about their demise.
Hitler freed his people of this curse.
Hitler was probably the hero of the second world war and the 21st century. A man of ethical courage, a man of spiritual
perception and good intent. A spiritual soul who cared – cared about all life forms, all cultures, about goodness
and Light and ultimately about Truth.
Because he was one of the good guys.
Two Adolf Hitler speeches – Demonstrating much of what National
Socialism is really about: Community, Comradery, Altruism…
You can watch these
speeches on YouTube – search: This is National Socialism
Speech Extract 1- National Socialism: Community and Altruism
“A new community
is being built in Germany, and it is our most beautiful goal and aim. Those who can’t even see past their
own nose deserve our pity more than anything else. It is the luck to help, which rewards those who commits themselves
to this socialist state, and this commitment must happen every new winter. Our social welfare system is so much
more than just charity. Because we do not say to the rich people: Please, give something to the poor. Instead
we say: German people, help yourself! Everyone must help, whether you are rich or poor! Everyone must have the
belief that there’s always someone in a much worse situation than I am, and this person I want to help as
a comrade. If one should say: Yes, but do I have to sacrifice a lot? That is the glory of giving! When you sacrifice for
your community, then you can walk with your head held up high…”
Speech Extract 2 – National Socialism: German Youth and Comradery
new state cannot simply fall down from the sky, instead it has to grow from within the people. Because when I need loyalty,
belief, confidence, fanaticism and commitment, then I must turn to where I can still find these values, and these
values can always be found in the people themselves, in the masses of the people!
youth, just as we’re gathered here, my young comrades, as part of the life of the people, so must the rest
of the people. It was not always so. In the past, people did not want to understand each other. Each thought only
of themselves. At best, their class alone. We have been witnesses to the consequences of this aberration of the
spirit. In your youth you must safeguard that which you possess, the great feeling of comradeship of being part
of the group. If you hold on to this, then there is no force in the world who can take it from you. You will be
one people bound together as tightly as you are now. As German youth, our only hope, the courage and faith of our people.
You, my youth, are indeed the living guarantee of the living future of Germany – not an empty idea –
not an empty formalism, or an insipid plan. No! You are the blood of our blood, the flesh of our flesh, and the
spirit of our spirit. You are the continuation of our people…”

Misch, Adolf Hitler's Loyal Bodyguard
Rochus Misch, who served as Adolf Hitler's devoted bodyguard for most of World
War II and was the last remaining witness to the great german leader's final hours in his Berlin bunker, has died just few
96 and died in Berlin after a short illness. Misch remained proud to the end about his years with Hitler, whom he affectionately
called "boss." In a 2005 interview with The Associated Press, Misch recalled Hitler as "a very normal man"
and gave a riveting account of the Führer's last days before he and his wife Eva Braun killed themselves as the Soviet
Red Army closed in around their bunker in Berlin.
"He was no brute. He was no monster. He was no superman," Misch said.
Born July 29, 1917, in the tiny Silesian town of Alt Schalkowitz,
in what today is Poland, Misch was orphaned at an early age. At age 20, he decided to join the SS — an organization
that he saw as a counterweight to a rising threat from the left. He signed up for the Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler, a unit
that was founded to serve as Hitler's personal protection.
"It was anti-communist, against Stalin — to protect Europe," Misch said. "I
signed up in the war against Bolshevism, not for Adolf Hitler."
But when Germany invaded Poland on Sept. 1, 1939, Misch found himself in
the vanguard, as his SS division was attached to a regular army unit for the blitzkrieg attack.
Misch was shot and nearly killed while trying to negotiate the
surrender of a fortress near Warsaw, and he was sent to Germany to recover. There, he was chosen in May 1940 as one of two
SS men who would serve as Hitler's bodyguards and general assistants, doing everything from answering the telephones to
and comrade Johannes Hentschel accompanied Hitler almost everywhere he went — including his Alpine retreat in Berchtesgaden
and his forward Wolf's Lair headquarters.
He lived between the Fuehrer's apartments in the New Reich Chancellery and the home in a working-class Berlin neighborhood
that he kept until his death.
was a wonderful boss," Misch said. "I lived with him for five years. We were the closest people who worked with
him ... we were always there. Hitler was never without us day and night."
In the last days of Hitler's life, Misch followed him to live underground,
protected by the Fuehrerbunker's heavily reinforced concrete ceilings and walls.
"Hentschel ran the lights, air and water and I did the telephones —
there was nobody else," he said. "When someone would come downstairs we couldn't even offer them a place to sit.
It was far too small."
the Soviet assault began, Misch remembered generals and NS brass coming and going as they tried desperately to cobble together
a defense of the capital with the ragtag remains of the German military.
He recalled that on April 22, two days before two Soviet armies completed their encirclement
of the city, Hitler said: "That's it. The war is lost. Everybody can go."
"Everyone except those who still had jobs to do like us — we had to stay,"
Misch said. "The lights, water, telephone ... those had to be kept going but everybody else was allowed to go and almost
all were gone immediately."
Hitler clung to a report — false, as it turned out — that the Western Allies had called upon Germany to hold
Berlin for two more weeks against the Soviets so that they could battle communism together.
"He still believed in a union between West and East," Misch said.
"Hitler liked England — except for (then-Prime Minister Winston) Churchill — and didn't think that a people
like the English would bind themselves with the communists to crush Germany."
On April 28, Misch saw Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels and Hitler confidant
Martin Bormann enter the bunker with a man he had never seen before.
"I asked who it was and they said that's the civil magistrate who has come to
perform Hitler's marriage," Misch said. That night, Hitler and longtime mistress Eva Braun were married in a short ceremony.
Two days later, Misch saw Goebbels and Bormann
talking with Hitler and his adjutant, SS Maj. Otto Guensche, in the bunker's corridor.
"I saw him go into his room ... and someone, Guensche, said that he
shouldn't be disturbed," Misch said. "We all knew that it was happening. He said he wasn't going to leave Berlin,
he would stay here."
heard no shot, we heard nothing, but one of those who was in the hallway, I don't remember if it was Guensche or Bormann,
said, 'Linge, Linge, I think it's done,'" Misch said, referring to Hitler's valet Heinz Linge.
"Then everything was really quiet ... who opened the door I don't
remember, Guensche or Linge. They opened the door, and I naturally looked, and then there was a short pause and the second
door was opened... and I saw Hitler lying on the table like so," Misch said, putting his head down on his hands on
his living-room table.
Eva lay like so on the sofa with knees up, her head to him."
Misch ran up to the chancellery to tell his superior the news and then back downstairs, where
Hitler's corpse had been put on the floor with a blanket over it.
"Then they bundled Hitler up and said 'What do we do now?'" Misch said. "As
they took Hitler out ... they walked by me about three or four meters away. I saw his shoes sticking outside the sack."
An SS guard ran down the stairs and tried
to get Misch to watch as the two were covered in gasoline and set alight. "He said, 'The boss is being burned. Come
on out,'" Misch recalled. But instead Misch hastily retreated deeper into the bunker to talk with comrade Hentschel.
"I said 'I saw the Gestapo upstairs

his post in the bunker — which he described as "a coffin of concrete" — taking and directing telephone
calls with Goebbels as his new boss until May 2, when he was given permission to flee.
Goebbels, he said, "came down and said: 'You have a chance to live.
You don't have to stay here and die.'" Misch grabbed the rucksack he had packed and fled with a few others into the
rubble of Berlin.
way through cellars and subways, Misch decided to surface after hearing German being spoken above through an air ventilation
shaft. But the voices came from about 300 soldiers who had been taken prisoner, and the Soviet guards grabbed him as well.
Following the German surrender May 7, Misch
was taken to the Soviet Union, where he spent the next nine years in prisoner of war camps before being allowed to return
to Berlin in 1954. He reunited with his wife Gerda, whom he had married in 1942 and who died in 1997, and opened up a shop.
At age 87, when he talked with the AP, Misch
still cut the image of an SS man, with a rigid posture, broad shoulders and neatly combed white hair. He stayed away from
questions of guilt or responsibility for the "Holocaust", saying he knew nothing of "the murder of 6 million
THE UNKNOWN ADOLF HITLER
Battlefield heroism knows
no frontiers. However, it is difficult to identify any whose valour equals that of a WWI (1914 – 1918) volunteer who
at the time was an unknown corporal.
Adolf Hitler saw frontline action at Yser, Ypres, Flanders, Neuve Chapelle, La Bassee, Arras, Artuis, Somme, Fromelles,
Alsace Lorraine, Aillette, Montdidier, Soissons, Rheims, Oise, Marne, Champagne, Vosle, Monchy, and Bapaume.
During those terrible years, the future leader
of the German people displayed exemplary courage in a conflict that involved more than forty battles. He was wounded on
October 5, 1916, and hospitalised for two months. Then he was back at the front until October 15, 1918, when he was hospitalised
again, this time for gas poisoning.
Hitler’s battlefield heroism was the stuff of legends and on a par with that of the Spartans of Thermopylae. Even
Jews, notoriously hostile to the German statesman, were unstinting in their praise. That few people are aware of this is
entirely due to the cowardliness of many palace publishers and media presstitutes.
Their spinelessness is such that they cannot honour their enemy; for thousands
of years a European tradition. Hitler’s wartime record is not a matter of dispute and explains why recognition is
muted, censored or lied about.
ADOLF HITLER THE WARRIOR
“He was a model of coolness and courage in both trench warfare
and assault combat. He was always ready to volunteer for carrying messages in the most difficult and dangerous situations.”
~ Lieutenant Colonel Godin in his official request that Hitler be awarded the Iron Cross 1st Class.
“He was always ready to help out in any
situation, always volunteered for the most difficult and most arduous, and the most dangerous missions, and to risk his life
and wellbeing for the Fatherland. On a human level, I felt closer to him than to any of the other men.” ~ Statement
by Colonel Anton Tubeuf further on the recognition being awarded.
“Hitler inspired all his comrades. His
fearless courage and devotion to duty, particularly in combat impressed them. His qualifications, modesty, and his admirable
sobriety earned him the greatest respect of his comrades and superiors alike.” ~ Great War veteran Colonel Spatny
who commanded the 16th Regiment
wartime record; campaigns, decorations, wounds, periods in hospital and on leave, is fully documented. In addition, there
is evidence to show that he was comradely, level-headed and an unusually brave soldier, and that a number of his commanding
officers singled him out for special mention.” ~ Werner Maser, former head of the Institute of Contemporary History
at the University of Munich, author of the biography Hitler, Legend, Myth, and Reality (Harper and Row, 1971).
“Hitler was quick in mind and body and
had great powers of endurance. His most remarkable qualities were his personal courage and daring which enabled him to face
any combat or perilous situation whatsoever.” ~ (1922) General Friedrich Petz summary of the High Command’s
appreciation of the self-effacing corporal Adolf Hitler.
“Hitler was a courageous and efficient soldier and was always a good comrade.”
~ Joachim Fest, German historian, and journalist.
“The courage and the composure with which
he faced the most deadly fire made him seem invulnerable to his comrades. As long as Hitler is near us, nothing will happen
to us, they kept repeating. It appears that made a deep impression on Hitler and reinforced his belief that he had been charged
with a special mission.” ~ Joachim Fest, German historian, and journalist.
“In the course of the preceding months, he had escaped death on innumerable
occasions. It was as though he had been wearing a good luck charm.” ~ John Toland, historian.
“Corporal Hitler was in all probability one of the German soldiers
who got closest to Paris in 1918.” ~ French Historian, Raymond Cartier.
“Hitler had a fierce courage unmatched by anyone at the time or since.”
~ Sebastian Haffner, the Jewish writer who was fanatically anti-Hitler.
“He was a pleasant and likeable man who took an interest in the welfare of all
his companions.” ~ Karl Hanisch, a Jew who shared lodgings with Hitler.
Karl Hanisch later recalled that his fellow lodger “. . . was neither proud
nor arrogant, and he was always available and willing to help. If someone needed fifty hellers to pay for another night’s
lodging, Hitler would always give whatever he had in his pocket without another thought. On several occasions, I personally
saw him take the initiative and pass the hat for such a collection.”

Hitler and Why ?
Economist Henry C
K Liu writes of Germany's remarkable transformation:
The Nazis came to power in 1933 when the German economy was in total collapse, with
ruinous war-reparation obligations and zero prospects for foreign investment or credit. Through an independent monetary
policy of sovereign credit and a full-employment public-works program, the Third Reich was able to turn a bankrupt
Germany, stripped of overseas colonies, into the strongest economy in Europe within
four years, even before armament spending began.” (Henry C. K. Liu, "Nazism and the German
Economic Miracle," Asia Times (May 24, 2005).
In Billions for the Bankers, Debts for the People (1984), Sheldon Emry commented: “Germany issued
debt-free and interest-free money from 1935 on, which accounts for Germany’s startling rise from the depression
to a world power in five years. The German government financed
its entire operations from 1935 to 1945 without gold, and without debt. It took the entire Capitalist and Communist
world to destroy the German revolution, and bring Europe back under the heel of the Bankers.”
These facts do not appear in any textbooks today, since Jews own most publishing
companies. What does appear is the disastrous runaway inflation suffered in 1923 by the Weimar Republic, which
governed Germany from 1919 to 1933. Today’s textbooks use this inflation to twist truth into its opposite.
They cite the radical devaluation of the German mark as an example of what goes wrong when governments print their
own money, rather than borrow it from private cartels. In reality, the Weimar financial crisis began with the
impossible reparations payments imposed at the Treaty of Versailles.
Hjalmar Schacht ~ the Rothschild agent who was currency commissioner for the Republic before
being dismissed when Hitler realized what he was up to~ opposed letting the German government print its own money.
Schacht echoed the textbook lie that Weimar inflation was caused when the German government printed its own money.
However, in his 1967 book The Magic of Money, Schacht let the cat out of the bag by revealing that it was the PRIVATELY-OWNED
Reichsbank, not the German government, that was pumping new currency into the economy. Thus, the PRIVATE BANK
caused the Weimar hyper-inflation. Naturally this terrifies the bankers, since it eliminates their powers. It
also terrifies Jews, since their control of banking allows them to buy the media, the government, and everything
Therefore, to those who delight in saying “Jews financed Hitler,” I ask that they please
look at all the facts. Prescott Bush and others including Henry Ford made donations to help finance Hitler. Some
did it because they simply had political sympathies for Hitler. Others had a different agenda, namely they saw
in Hitler a strongman who would rebuild a strong Germany which was needed for the well planned second world war.
All that was needed after Hitler got into power and nationalized the German economic system and built a prosperous
nation, was to get Hitler to take the bait. Jewish NKVD squads organized a massive ethnic cleansing in the former
German states ceded to Poland 20 years earlier, killing tens of thousands of Germans in the preceding weeks, deliberately
provoking the 1st September 1939 German attack to stop the massacre of Germans in the former German states in
Poland. Have you ever wondered why France and England declared war on Germany for the well deserved German attack
on Poland, but not on the Soviet Union when it also attacked and occupied most of Poland ?
Tackled Financial and Economic Crisis Within Three Years
To deal with the massive unemployment and economic paralysis of the Great Depression,
both the US and German governments launched innovative and ambitious programs.
Although President Franklin Roosevelt’s
“New Deal” measures helped only marginally, the Third Reich’s much more focused and comprehensive policies
proved remarkably effective. Within three years unemployment was banished and Germany’s economy was flourishing.
record in dealing with the Depression is pretty well known, the remarkable story of how Hitler tackled the crisis is not
widely understood or appreciated.
Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany on January 30, 1933. A few weeks later, on March
4, Franklin Roosevelt took office as President of the United States. Each man remained his country’s chief executive
for the next twelve years -- until April 1945, shortly before the end of World War II in Europe. In early 1933 industrial
production in each country had fallen to about half of what it had been in 1929. Each leader quickly launched bold new initiatives
to tackle the terrible economic crisis, above all the scourge of mass unemployment. And although there are some striking
similarities between the efforts of the two governments, the results were very different.
One of the most influential and widely read American
economists of the twentieth century was John Kenneth Galbraith. He was an advisor to several presidents, and for a time
served as US ambassador to India. He was the author of several dozen books, and for years taught economics at Harvard University.
With regard to Germany’s record, Galbraith wrote: “… The elimination of unemployment in Germany during
the Great Depression without inflation -- and with initial reliance on essential civilian activities -- was a signal accomplishment.
It has rarely been praised and not much remarked. The notion that Hitler could do no good extends to his economics as it
does, more plausibly, to all else.”
regime’s economic policy, Galbraith goes on, involved “large scale borrowing for public expenditures, and at
first this was principally for civilian work -- railroads, canals and the Autobahnen [highway network]. The result was a
far more effective attack on unemployment than in any other industrial country.” / 1 “By late 1935,” he
also wrote, “unemployment was at an end in Germany. By 1936 high income was pulling up prices or making it possible
to raise them … Germany, by the late thirties, had full employment at stable prices. It was, in the industrial world,
an absolutely unique achievement.” / 2 “Hitler also anticipated modern economic policy,” the economist
noted, “by recognizing that a rapid approach to full employment was only possible if it was combined with wage and
price controls. That a nation oppressed by economic fears would respond to Hitler as Americans did to F.D.R. is not surprising.”
Other countries, Galbraith wrote, failed
to understand or to learn from the German experience: “The German example was instructive but not persuasive. British
and American conservatives looked at the Nazi financial heresies -- the borrowing and spending -- and uniformly predicted
a breakdown … And American liberals and British socialists looked at the repression, the destruction of the unions,
the Brownshirts, the Blackshirts, the concentration camps, and screaming oratory, and ignored the economics. Nothing good
[they believed], not even full employment, could come from Hitler.”
Two days after taking office as Chancellor, Hitler addressed the nation by radio. Although
he and other leaders of his movement had made clear their intention to reorganize the nation’s social, political,
cultural and educational life in accord with National Socialist principles, everyone knew that, with some six million jobless
and the national economy in paralysis, the great priority of the moment was to restore the nation’s economic life,
above all by tackling unemployment and providing productive work.
“The misery of our people is horrible to behold!,” said Hitler in this inaugural
address. / 5 “Along with the hungry unemployed millions of industrial workers there is the impoverishment of the whole
middle class and the artisans. If this collapse finally also finishes off the German farmers we will face a catastrophe
of incalculable dimension. For that would be not just the collapse of a nation, but of a two-thousand-year-old inheritance
of some of the greatest achievements of human culture and civilization …”
The new government, Hitler said, would “achieve the great task of
reorganizing our nation’s economy by means of two great four-year plans. The German farmer must be rescued to maintain
the nation’s food supply and, in consequence, the nation’s vital foundation. The German worker will be saved
from ruin with a concerted and all-embracing attack against unemployment.”
“Within four years,” he pledged, “unemployment must be
decisively overcome … The Marxist parties and their allies have had 14 years to show what they can do. The result
is a heap of ruins. Now, people of Germany, give us four years and then pass judgment upon us!”
Rejecting the cloudy and impractical economic views of some radical activists
in his Party, Hitler turned to men of proven ability and competence. Most notably, he enlisted the help of Hjalmar Schacht,
a prominent banker and financier with an impressive record in both private business and public service. Even though Schacht
was certainly no National Socialist, Hitler appointed him President of Germany’s central bank, the Reichsbank, and
then as Minister of Economics.
taking power, writes Prof. John Garraty, a prominent American historian, Hitler and his new government “immediately
launched an all-out assault on unemployment … They stimulated private industry through subsidies and tax rebates,
encouraged consumer spending by such means as marriage loans, and plunged into the massive public-works program that produced
the autobahn [highway system], and housing, railroad and navigation projects.”
The regime’s new leaders also succeeded in persuading formerly skeptical
and even hostile Germans of their sincerity, resolve and ability. This fostered trust and confidence, which in turn encouraged
businessmen to hire and invest, and consumers to spend with an eye to the future.
As he had promised, Hitler and his National Socialist government banished
unemployment within four years. The number of jobless was cut from six million at the beginning of 1933, when he took power,
to one million by 1936. / 7 So rapidly was the jobless rate reduced that by 1937-38 there was a national labor shortage.
For the great mass of Germans, wages and
working conditions improved steadily. From 1932 to 1938 gross real weekly earnings increased by 21 percent. After taking
into account tax and insurance deductions and adjustments to the cost of living, the increase in real weekly earnings during
this period was 14 percent. At the same time, rents remained stable, and there was a relative decline in the costs of heating
and light. Prices actually declined for some consumer goods, such as electrical appliances, clocks and watches, as well
as for some foods. "Consumer prices rose at an average annual rate of just 1.2 percent between 1933 and 1939,"
notes British historian Niall Ferguson. "This meant that Germans workers were better off in real as well as nominal
terms: between 1933 and 1938, weekly net earnings (after tax) rose by 22 percent, while the cost of living rose by just seven
percent." Even after the outbreak of war in September 1939, workers’ income continued to rise. By 1943 average
hourly earnings of German workers had risen by 25 percent, and weekly earnings by 41 percent.
The “normal” work day for most Germans was eight hours, and
pay for overtime work was generous. / 10 In addition to higher wages, benefits included markedly improved working conditions,
such as better health and safety conditions, canteens with subsidized hot meals, athletic fields, parks, subsidized theater
performances and concerts, exhibitions, sports and hiking groups, dances, adult education courses, and subsidized tourism.
/ 11 An already extensive network of social welfare programs, including old age insurance and a national health care program,
Germans to have “the highest possible standard of living,” he said in an interview with an American journalist
in early 1934. “In my opinion, the Americans are right in not wanting to make everyone the same but rather in upholding
the principle of the ladder. However, every single person must be granted the opportunity to climb up the ladder.”
/ 12 In keeping with this outlook, Hitler’s government promoted social mobility, with wide opportunities to improve
and advance. As Prof. Garraty notes: “It is beyond argument that the Nazis encouraged working-class social and economic
mobility.” To encourage acquisition of new skills, the government greatly expanded vocational training programs, and
offered generous incentives for further advancement of efficient workers.
Both National Socialist ideology and Hitler’s basic outlook, writes historian
John Garraty, “inclined the regime to favor the ordinary German over any elite group. Workers … had an honored
place in the system.” In accord with this, the regime provided substantive fringe benefits for workers that included
subsidized housing, low-cost excursions, sports programs, and more pleasing factory facilities.
In his detailed and critical biography of Hitler, historian Joachim Fest
acknowledged: “The regime insisted that it was not the rule of one social class above all others, and by granting everyone
opportunities to rise, it in fact demonstrated class neutrality … These measures did indeed break through the old,
petrified social structures. They tangibly improved the material condition of much of the population.”
A few figures give an idea of how the quality
of life improved. Between 1932, the last year of the pre-Hitler era, and 1938, the last full year before the outbreak of
war, food consumption increased by one sixth, while clothing and textile turnover increased by more than a quarter, and
of furniture and household goods by 50 percent. / 16 During the Third Reich’s peacetime years, wine consumption rose
by 50 percent, and champagne consumption increased five-fold. / 17 Between 1932 and 1938, the volume of tourism more than
doubled, while automobile ownership during the 1930s tripled. / 18 German motor vehicle production, which included cars
made by the US-owned Ford and General Motors (Opel) works, doubled in the five years of 1932 to 1937, while Germany’s
motor vehicle exports increased eight-fold. Air passenger traffic in Germany more than tripled from 1933 to 1937.
German business revived and prospered. During
the first four years of the National Socialist era, net profits of large corporations quadrupled, and managerial and entrepreneurial
income rose by nearly 50 percent. / 20 Between 1933 and 1938, notes historian Niall Ferguson, Germany's "gross domestic
product grew, on average, by a remarkable eleven percent a year," with no significant increase in the rate of inflation.
/ 21 “Things were to get even better,” writes Jewish historian Richard Grunberger in his detailed study, The
Twelve-Year Reich. “In the three years between 1939 and 1942 German industry expanded as much as it had during the
preceding fifty years.”
German businesses flourished, profits were controlled and by law were kept within moderate limits. / 21 Beginning in 1934,
dividends for stockholders of German corporations were limited to six percent annually. Undistributed profits were invested
in Reich government bonds, which had an annual interest yield of six percent, and then, after 1935, of four and a half percent.
This policy had the predictable effect of encouraging corporate reinvestment and self-financing, and thereby of reducing
borrowing from banks and, more generally, of diminishing the influence of commercial capital.
Corporation tax rates were steadily raised, from 20 percent in 1934 to
25 percent in 1936, and to 40 percent in 1939-40. Directors of German companies could grant bonuses to managers, but only
if these were directly proportionate to profits and they also authorized corresponding bonuses or “voluntary social
contributions” to employees.
1934 and 1938, the gross taxable income of German businessmen increased by 148 percent, and overall tax volume increased
during this period by 232 percent. The number of taxpayers in the highest income tax bracket -- those earning more than
100,000 marks annually -- increased during this period by 445 percent. (By contrast, the number of taxpayers in the lowest
income bracket -- those earning less than 1500 marks yearly -- increased by only five percent.)
Taxation in National Socialist Germany was sharply “progressive,”
with those of higher income paying proportionately more than those in the lower income brackets. Between 1934 and 1938, the
average tax rate on incomes of more than 100,000 marks rose from 37.4 percent to 38.2 percent. In 1938 Germans in the lowest
tax brackets were 49 percent of the population and had 14 percent of the national income, but paid only 4.7 percent of the
tax burden. Those in the highest income category, who were just one percent of the population but with 21 percent of the
income, paid 45 percent of the tax burden.
Jews made up about one percent of Germany’s total population when Hitler came to power. While the new government
moved quickly to remove them from the nation’s political and cultural life, Jews were permitted to carry on in economic
life, at least for several years. In fact, many Jews benefited from the regime’s recovery measures and the general
economic revival. In June 1933, for example, Hitler approved a large-scale government investment of 14.5 million marks in
the Jewish-owned firm Hertie, a Berlin department store chain. This “bail out” was done to prevent the ruin
of the large firm’s suppliers, financiers, and, above all, its 14,000 employees.
Prof. Gordon Craig, who for years taught history at Stanford University,
points out: “In the clothing and retail trades, Jewish firms continued to operate profitably until 1938, and in Berlin
and Hamburg, in particular, establishments of known reputation and taste continued to attract their old customers despite
their ownership by Jews. In the world of finance, no restrictions were placed upon the activities of Jewish firms in the
Berlin Bourse [stock market], and until 1937 the banking houses of Mendelssohn, Bleichröder, Arnhold, Dreyfuss, Straus,
Warburg, Aufhäuser, and Behrens were still active.” / 27 Five years after Hitler had come to power, the Jewish
role in business life was still a significant one, and Jews still held considerable real estate holdings, especially in
Berlin. This changed markedly in 1938, however, and by the end of 1939 Jews had been largely removed from German economic
rate fell during the Hitler years, with significant drops in the rates of murder, robbery, theft, embezzlement and petty
larceny. / 28 Improvement in the health and outlook of Germans impressed many foreigners. “Infant mortality has been
greatly reduced and is considerably inferior to that in Great Britain,” wrote Sir Arnold Wilson, a British M.P. who
visited Germany seven times after Hitler had come to power. “Tuberculosis and other diseases have noticeably diminished.
The criminal courts have never had so little to do and the prisons have never had so few occupants. It is a pleasure to observe
the physical aptitude of the German youth. Even the poorest persons are better clothed than was formerly the case, and their
cheerful faces testify to the psychological improvement that has been wrought within them.”
The improved psychological-emotional well-being of Germans during this
period has also been noted by social historian Richard Grunberger. “There can be little doubt,” he wrote, “that
the [National Socialist] seizure of power engendered a wide-spread improvement in emotional health; this was not only a
result of the economic upswing, but of many Germans’ heightened sense of identification with the national purpose.”
Austria experienced a dramatic upswing after
it joined the German Reich in March 1938. Immediately following the Anschluss (“union”), officials moved quickly
to relieve social distress and revitalize the moribund economy. Investment, industrial production, housing construction,
consumer spending, tourism and the standard of living rose rapidly. Between June and December 1938 alone, the weekly income
of Austria’s industrial workers rose by nine percent. The National Socialist regime’s success in banishing unemployment
was so rapid that American historian Evan Burr Bukey was moved to call it “one of the most remarkable economic achievements
in modern history.” The jobless rate in Austria dropped from 21.7 percent in 1937 to 3.2 percent in 1939. The Austrian
GNP rose 12.8 percent in 1938, and an astonishing 13.3 percent in 1939.
An important expression of national confidence was a sharp increase in the birth
rate. Within a year after Hitler came to power, the German birth rate jumped by 22 percent, rising to a high point in 1938.
It remained high even in 1944 -- the last full year of World War II. / 32 In the view of historian John Lukacs, this jump
in the birth rate was an expression of “the optimism and the confidence” of Germans during the Hitler years.
“For every two children born in Germany in 1932, three were born four years later,” he notes. “In 1938
and 1939, the highest marriage rates in all of Europe were registered in Germany, superseding even those among the prolific
peoples of Eastern Europe. The phenomenal rise of the German birthrate in the thirties was even steeper than the rise of
the marriage rate.” / 33 “National Socialist Germany, alone among countries peopled by whites, succeeded in attaining
some increase in fertility,” notes the outstanding Scottish-born American historian Gordon A. Craig, with a sharp
rise in the birth rate after Hitler came to power, and a steady increase in the years that followed.
In a lengthy address to the Reichstag in early 1937, Hitler recalled the
pledges he had made when his government assumed power. He also explained the principles on which his policies were based,
and looked back at what had been accomplished in four years. / 35 “… Those who talk about `democracies’
and ‘dictatorships’,” he said, “simply do not understand that a revolution has been carried out in
this country, the results of which can be considered democratic in the highest sense of the term, if democracy has any real
meaning … The National Socialist Revolution has not aimed at turning a privileged class into a class that will have
no rights in the future. Its aim has been to give equal rights to those who had no rights … Our objective has been
to make it possible for the whole German people to be active, not only in the economic but also in the political field,
and to secure this by organizationally involving the masses … During the past four years we have increased German
production in all areas to an extraordinary degree. And this increase in production has been to the benefit of all Germans.”
In another address two years later, Hitler
spoke briefly about his regime’s economic achievement: / 36 “I overcame chaos in Germany, restored order, enormously
raised production in all fields of our national economy, by strenuous efforts produced substitutes for numerous materials
that we lack, encouraged new inventions, developed traffic, caused mighty roads to be built and canals to be dug, called
into being gigantic factories, and at the same time endeavored to further the education and culture of our people for the
development of our social community. I succeeded in finding useful work once more for the whole of the seven million unemployed,
who so touched all our hearts, in keeping the German farmer on his soil in spite of all difficulties, and in saving the
land itself for him, in restoring a prosperous German trade, and in promoting traffic to the utmost.”
been claimed, even by some supposedly reputable scholars, that Hitler’s success in reviving his nation’s economic
life was based largely on government spending for rearmament and preparation for war. This is a myth. As the renowned British
historian A. J. P. Taylor noted: / 37 “Germany’s economic recovery, which was complete by 1936, did not rest
on rearmamnent; it was caused mainly by lavish expenditure on public works, particularly on motor roads, and this public
spending stimulated private spending also, as [British economist John Maynard] Keynes had said it would. Hitler actually
skimped on armaments, despite his boasting, partly because he wished to avoid the unpopularitiy which a reduction of the
German standard of living would cause, but more from the confident belief that he would always succeed in bluff. Thus, paradoxidcally,
while nearly eveeryone else in Europe expected a great war, Hitler was the one man who neither expected nor planned for it.”
American historian John Garraty compared
the American and German responses to the Great Depression in a much-discussed article published in the American Historical
Review. He wrote: / 38 “The two movements [that is, in the US and in Germany] nevertheless reacted to the Great Depression
in similar ways, distinct from those of other industrial nations. Of the two the Nazis were the more successful in curing
the economic ills of the 1930s. They reduced unemployment and stimulated industrial production faster than the Americans
did and, considering their resources, handled their monetary and trade problems more successfully, certainly more imaginatively.
This was partly because the Nazis employed deficit financing on a larger scale and partly because their totalitarian system
better lent itself to the mobilization of society, both by force and by persuasion. By 1936 the depression was substantially
over in Germany, far from finished in the United States.”
In fact, the jobless rate in the United States remained high until the stimulation of large-scale
war production took hold. Even as late as March 1940, the US unemployment rate was still almost 15 percent of the work force.
It was production for war, not Roosevelt’s “New Deal’ programs, that finally brought full employment.
Prof. William Leuchtenburg, a prominent American
historian known best for his books on the life and career of Franklin Roosevelt, summed up the President’s mixed record
in a highly acclaimed study. “The New Deal left many problems unsolved and even created some perplexing new ones,”
concluded Leuchtenburg. “It never demonstrated that it could achieve prosperity in peacetime. As late as 1941, the
unemployed still numbered six million, and not until the war year of 1943 did the army of jobless finally disappear.”
The contrast between the German and American
economic records during the 1930s is all the more striking when one takes into account that the US had vastly greater natural
resource wealth, including large petroleum reserves, as well as a lower population density, and no hostile, well-armed neighbors.
In an address given in December 1941, Hitler
himself compared the record of his government and that of President Roosevelt in dealing with the challenge of the world
the German Reich experienced an enormous improvement in social, economic, cultural and artistic life in just a few years
under National Socialist leadership,” he said, “President Roosevelt was not able to bring about even limited
improvements in his own country. This task should have been much easier in the United States, with barely 15 people per
square kilometer, as compared to 140 in Germany. If economic prosperity is not possible in that country, it must be the result
of either a lack of will by the ruling leadership or the complete incompetence of the men in charge. In just five years,
the economic problems were solved in Germany and unemployment was eliminated. During this same period, President Roosevelt
enormously increased his country's national debt, devalued the dollar, further disrupted the economy, and maintained the
same number of unemployed.”
another major address given that same year, Hitler compared the social-political-economic systems of the United States, the
Soviet Union, and Germany. / 42 “We’ve now gotten to know two [social-political] extremes,” he said. “One
is that of the Capitalist states, which use lies, fraud and swindling to deny their peoples the most basic vital rights,
and which are concerned entirely with their own financial interests, for which they are ready to sacrifice millions of people.
On the other hand we’ve seen [in the Soviet Union] the Communist extreme: a state that’s brought unspeakable
misery to millions and millions, and which, following its doctrine, sacrifices the happiness of others. From this [awareness],
in my view, there is for all of us only one obligation, namely, to strive more than ever toward our national and socialist
ideal … In this [German] state the prevailing principle is not, as in Soviet Russia, the principle of so-called equality,
but rather only the principle of justice.”
Could Hitler’s economic policies work in the United States? These policies are probably most workable in countries
such as Sweden, Denmark, and the Netherlands, with a well-educated, self-disciplined and ethnically-culturally cohesive
population, and a traditionally strong “communitarian” ethos with a correspondingly high level of social trust.
Hitler’s economic policies are less applicable in the United States and other societies with an ethnically-culturally
diverse population, a markedly individualistic, “laissez-faire” tradition, and a correspondingly weaker “communitarian”
David Lloyd George —
who had been Britain’s prime minister during the First World War -- made an extensive tour of Germany in late 1936.
In an article published afterwards in a leading London newspaper, the British statesman recounted what he had seen and experienced.
“Whatever one may think of his [Hitler’s]
methods,” wrote Lloyd George, “and they are certainly not those of a parliamentary country, there can be no
doubt that he has achieved a marvelous transformation in the spirit of the people, in their attitude towards each other,
and in their social and economic outlook.
“He rightly claimed at Nuremberg that in four years his movement had made a new Germany. It is not the Germany
of the first decade that followed the war — broken, dejected and bowed down with a sense of apprehension and impotence.
It is now full of hope and confidence, and of a renewed sense of determination to lead its own life without interference
from any influence outside its own frontiers.
“There is for the first time since the war a general sense of security. The people are more cheerful. There
is a greater sense of general gaiety of spirit throughout the land. It is a happier Germany. I saw it everywhere, and Englishmen
I met during my trip and who knew Germany well were very impressed with the change.”
“This great people,” the seasoned statesman went on to warn,
“will work better, sacrifice more, and, if necessary, fight with greater resolution because Hitler asks them to do
so. Those who do not comprehend this central fact cannot judge the present possibilities of modern Germany.”
Although prejudice and ignorance have hindered
a wider awareness and understanding of Hitler’s economic policies and their impact, his success in economic policy
has been acknowledged by historians, including scholars who are generally very critical of the German leader and his regime’s
John Lukacs, a Hungarian-born
American historian whose books have generated much comment and praise, has written: “Hitler’s achievements,
domestic rather than foreign, during the six [peacetime] years of his leadership of Germany were extraordinary … He
brought prosperity and confidence to the Germans, the kind of prosperity that is the result of confidence. The thirties,
after 1933, were sunny years for most Germans; something that remained in the memories of an entire generation among them.”
Sebastian Haffner, an influential German
journalist and historian who was also a fierce critic of the Third Reich and its ideology, reviewed Hitler’s life
and legacy in a much-discussed book. Although his portrayal of the German leader in The Meaning of Hitler is a harsh one,
the author all the same writes:
these positive achievements of Hitler the one outshining all others was his economic miracle.” While the rest of the
world was still mired in the economic paralysis, Hitler had made “Germany an island of prosperity.” Within three
years, Haffner goes on, “crying need and mass hardship had generally turned into modest but comfortable prosperity.
Almost equally important: helplessness and hopelessness had given way to confidence and self-assurance. Even more miraculous
was the fact that the transition from depression to economic boom had been accomplished without inflation, at totally stable
wages and prices … It is difficult to picture adequately the grateful amazement with which the Germans reacted to
that miracle, which, more particularly, made vast numbers of German workers switch from the Social Democrats and the Communists
to Hitler after 1933. This grateful amazement entirely dominated the mood of the German masses during the 1936 to 1938 period
of the Nazi economic achievement should not be underestimated," concludes Niall Ferguson, a Harvard University professor
of history. "It was real and impressive. No other European economy achieved such a rapid recovery ... To most people
in 1930s Germany it seemed there had been an economic miracle. The Volksgemeinschaft [national community] was more than
mere rhetoric; it meant full employment, higher wages, stable prices, reduced poverty, cheap radios (the Volksempfänger)
and budget holidays. It is too easily forgotten that there were more holiday camps than concentration camps in Germany between
1935 and 1939. Workers became better trained, farmers saw their incomes rise. Nor were foreigners unimpressed by what was
happening. American corporations including Standard Oil, General Motors and IBM all rushed to invest directly in the German
another prominent German journalist and historian, reviewed Hitler’s life in an acclaimed and comprehensive biography.
“If Hitler had succumbed to an assassination or an accident at the end of 1938,” he wrote, “few would
hesitate to call him one of the greatest of German statesmen, the consummator of Germany’s history.” “No
objective observer of the German scene could deny Hitler’s considerable exploits,” noted American historian
John Toland. “If Hitler had died in 1937 on the fourth anniversary of his coming to power … he undoubtedly would
have gone down as one of the greatest figures in German history. Throughout Europe he had millions of admirers.”

John Kennedy Called Hitler 'Stuff of Legends,' Diary Reveals
A diary kept
by President John F Kennedy as a young man travelling in Europe, revealing his fascination with Adolf Hitler, is up for
auction. Kennedy, then 28, predicted "Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most
significant figures who ever lived". "He had in him the stuff of which legends are made," he continued.
Kennedy wrote the entry in the summer of 1945 after touring the German dictator's Bavarian mountain retreat. It is thought
by historians to be the only diary every kept by the 35th US president. The original copy will be auctioned for the first
time on 26 April in Boston by longtime owner Deirdre Henderson, who worked as a research assistant for Kennedy while he
was a US senator with White House ambitions.
Their Wehrmacht Was Better Than Our Army
Max Hastings -
The Washington Post
inescapable truth is that Hitler's Wehrmacht was the outstanding fighting force of World War II, one of the greatest in
history. For many years after 1945, this seemed painful to concede publicly ... The Allied leaders invited their ground
troops to fight the Wehrmacht with equipment inferior in every category save artillery and transport. German machine-guns,
mortars, machine-pistols, antitank weapons and armored personnel carriers were all superior to those of Britain and America.
Above all, Germany possessed better tanks ... One of the more absurd propaganda clichés of the war was the image
of the Nazi soldier as an inflexible squarehead. In reality, the German soldier almost invariably showed far greater flexibility
on the battlefield than his Allied counterpart.
Adolf Hitler: My Political Testament (Berlin, 29 April 1945)
1914, when as a volunteer, I made my modest contribution in the World War which was forced upon the Reich, over
thirty years have passed.
In these three decades, only love for my people and loyalty to my people
have guided me in all my thoughts, actions, and life. They gave me the strength to make the most difficult decisions,
such as no mortal has yet had to face. I have exhausted my time, my working energy, and my health in these three
It is untrue that I or anybody else in Germany wanted war in 1939. It was desired and instigated exclusively
by those international statesmen who were either of Jewish origin or working for Jewish interests. I have made
so many offers for the reduction and elimination of armaments, which posterity cannot explain away for all eternity,
that the responsibility for the outbreak of this war cannot rest on me. Furthermore, I never desired that after
the first terrible World War a second war should arise against England or even against America. Centuries may
pass, but out of the ruins of our cities and monuments of art there will arise anew the hatred for the people who
alone are ultimately responsible: International Jewry and its helpers!
As late as three days before the outbreak
of the German-Polish War, I proposed to the British Ambassador in Berlin a solution for the German-Polish problem
-- similar to the problem of the Saar area, under international control. This offer cannot be explained away, either.
It was only rejected because the responsible circles in English politics wanted the war, partly in the expectation
of business advantages, partly driven by propaganda promoted by international Jewry.
But I left no doubt about the fact that
if the peoples of Europe were again only regarded as so many packages of stock shares by these international money
and finance conspirators, then that race, too, which is the truly guilty party in this murderous struggle would
also have to be held to account: the Jews! I further left no doubt that this time we would not permit millions
of European children of Aryan descent to die of hunger, nor millions of grown-up men to suffer death, nor hundreds
of thousands of women and children to be burned and bombed to death in their cities, without the truly guilty
party having to atone for its guilt, even if through more humane means.
After six years
of struggle, which in spite of all reverses will go down in history as the most glorious and most courageous manifestation
of a people's will to live. I cannot separate myself from the city which is the capital of this Reich. Because
our forces are too few to permit any further resistance against the enemy's assaults, and because individual resistance
is rendered valueless by blinded and characterless scoundrels, I desire to share the fate that millions of others
have taken upon themselves, in that I shall remain in this city. Furthermore, I do not want to fall into the hands of
enemies who for the delectation of the hate-riddled masses require a new spectacle promoted by the Jews.
I have therefore
resolved to remain in Berlin and there to choose death of my own will at the very moment when, as I believe, the
seat of the Fuehrer and Chancellor can no longer be defended. I die with a joyful heart in the awareness the immeasurable
deeds and achievements of our soldiers at the front, of our women at home, the achievements of our peasants and
workers, and the contribution, unique in history, of our youth, which bears my name.
It goes without saying
that I thank them all from the bottom of my heart and that it is also my desire that in spite of everything they
should not give up the struggle, but continue fighting wherever they may be, faithful to the great Clausewitz,
against the enemies of the Fatherland. From the sacrifices of our soldiers and from my own comradeship with them,
there will come in one way or another into German history the seed of a brilliant renaissance of the National Socialist
movement and thus the realization of a true national community.
Many very brave men and women have resolved to link
their lives to mine to the very end. I have requested them, and finally ordered them, not to do so, but instead
to take part in the continuing struggle of the nation. I ask the commanders of the army, navy, and air force to
strengthen by all possible means the spirit of resistance of our soldiers in the spirit of National Socialism,
emphasizing especially that I too, as founder and creator of this movement, have preferred death to cowardly flight
or even capitulation.
it be one day a part of the code of honor; as it is already in the navy, that the surrender of an area or of a
town is impossible, and above all in this respect the leaders should give a shining example of faithful devotion
to duty unto death.
Several brave men have joined me by their own free will and do not wish to leave the capital of the Reich
under any circumstances, but on the contrary are willing to perish with me here. Yet I must ask them to obey my
request, and in this instance place the interests of the nation above their own feelings.
Through their work and loyalty
they will remain just as close to me as companions after my death, just as I hope that my spirit will remain amongst
them and will always accompany them. Let them be hard, but never unjust; above all, let them never allow fear to
counsel their actions, but may they place the honor of the nation above everything on this earth. Finally, may
they be conscious of the fact that our task of building a National Socialist state represents the labor of the
coming centuries, and this places every single person under an obligation always to serve the common interest
and to subordinate his own interests. I demand of all Germans, all National Socialists, men and women and all
soldiers of the Armed Forces, that they remain faithful and obedient to the new government and to their President
Above all, I charge the leadership of the nation and their followers with the strict observance of the
racial laws and with merciless resistance against the universal poisoners of all peoples, international Jewry.

aim of Bolshevism ... is to exterminate all that is healthy and replace the same by depravity and degenerate elements. We
do not want a situation here in Germany, as in Russia, in which 98% of official key positions are held by alien Jews."
"Such is the difference between the Bolshevik and the National Socialist revolutions: The one
transforms prosperous and peaceful countries into a waste of ruin and devastation, whilst the other, re-builds a broken-down
and poverty-stricken Reich into an economically sound and prosperous state."
“We do not deny the grave concern which
we feel at the thought of other nations becoming a victim of Bolshevism towards which we are deadly antagonistic. This deadly
enmity of ours is not based on an obstinate refusal to recognise any ideas that may be contrary to ours. But this hostility
is based on a natural feeling of revulsion towards a diabolical doctrine that threatens the world at large and Germany.
The first phase in the fight of National Socialism against Communism did not take place in Russia. Soviet
Communism tried to poison Germany between the years 1918 and 1920, and its methods of penetration into this country was
much the same as its present-day military efforts in moving the Bolshevik military machine closer and closer to German frontiers.
We have stamped out Bolshevism,
which Moscow’s blood-fiends such as Lewin, Axelroth, Neumann, Bela-Kuhn, etc. tried to introduce into Germany. And
it is because we see day by day these efforts of Soviet rulers to meddle in our domestic affairs have not yet ceased, that
we are forced to regard Bolshevism beyond our frontiers as our deadly enemy.
have fought Bolshevism in Germany as a philosophy that endeavoured to poison and destroy our people. And Bolshevism
will continue to be fought if it attempts to introduce its sordid Spanish methods into Germany (Spanish Civil War).
It is not the aim of Bolshevism to free nations from their ailments. Its object is to exterminate
all that is healthy and replace the same by depravity and degenerate elements. We do not want a situation here in Germany,
as in Russia, in which 98% of official key positions are held by alien Jews. Under no circumstances do we want our
national intelligence debased.
Communism, however, cannot deny
that in Russia today 98% of all official positions are held by Jews who not only can never be classed as members of the
proletariat, but who have never earned an honest penny in their lives.
fought Bolshevism because its leaders had planned for us a slaughter house on Russian and Spanish lines. Such is the difference
between the Bolshevik and the National Socialist revolutions. The one transforms prosperous and peaceful countries into
a waste of ruin and devastation, whilst the other, re-builds a broken-down and poverty-stricken Reich into an economically
sound and prosperous state.
The German people were familiar with the true nature
of Bolshevism whilst the peoples of Britain and the United States were kept in ignorance. Censorship protected Jewish-owned
finance houses and corporate interests that were investing in Bolshevik USSR.
We believe that it is a bigger task to put
five million people back to work than to burn down houses and churches and allow hundreds of thousands of workers and peasants
and others to kill each other. We have also fought Bolshevism on general economic grounds.
From time to time, the world hears of hunger famines in Russia. Since
1917, that is, since the victory of Bolshevism, there is no end to this form of distress. Russia, starving for close on
20 years, was one of the richest grain countries in the world.
When compared with Germany, Russia possesses eighteen times more land per head of population,
and yet what a sorry form of economic policy this country must have to deny its people a decent form of livelihood. If Bolshevism
in Russia, however, does not succeed in getting nine farmers to produce sufficient to at least support one non-farmer what
then would have happened in Germany, where two and a half farmers produce enough to support seven and a half non-farmers?
What would have happened to Germany and
the whole of its economic structure if Jewish-Bolshevik economic malpractice had ever been allowed to take root here?
We have fought Bolshevism because a victory
for it in Germany would have spelled starvation for perhaps 50% of our population. If Russia were incapable of supporting
not even eight people per square kilometre, then in Germany under Bolshevik rule, not even ten million would have had the
necessary minimum standard of living. For here in Germany, our 68 million people occupy the same area, which in Russia
would not support more than 5 million.
Bolshevism preaches world revolution, and it would use the German workers as cannon fodder for the attainment of
its goal. We National Socialists, however, do not want our military forces to be used for forcing upon other nations
something that they do not want. Our Army does not swear an oath that it will carry our National Socialist ideology
to other nations.
in England have so far not had the opportunity of learning what Communism in one’s own country stands for. But
As I am the one who
has fought against this Judeo-Soviet teaching in Germany and stamped it out. I flatter myself that I possess more understanding
of the true character of Bolshevism than those armchair critics who at most have read up on the subject a little.
Today, I follow the spread of Bolshevik
poison throughout the world just as assiduously as I followed its poisonous trail years ago in Germany, and never lost an
opportunity of warning the country. The abhorrent mass-murders of nationalists, the burning alive of wives of nationalist
officers after soaking them in petrol, the revolting murder of children of nationalist parents as for example in Spain, should
serve as a warning to help to break down resistance in other countries.”

Happy Birthday, Adolf Hitler
April 20, 1889
THERE WAS A TIME when the personality of Adolf Hitler dominated European consciousness;
when his voice stirred millions; when he used to pass by, on solemn occasions, cheered by millions—the idol of the
nation whom he had raised from the abyss to unparalleled greatness. There was a time when Germany was prosperous, strong,
full of self-confidence; when her reborn people, well-fed, well-clothed, and well-housed, were happy to work together for
a future in which they believed; when they lived, as they had yet never lived before, under the firm and wise rule of the
Leader who loved them as no man ever had.
One can hardly believe it today. It all seems so unreal—like a wonderful story from another world. And yet, it is
true. There really was such a time, and that, not long ago. Collective enthusiasm was then as general in Germany as fear
and bitterness have become since. Military parades, youth demonstrations, and enormous mass gatherings were usual occurrences.
One watched the Brown battalions march past one’s house, and listened to the inspiring music of the Horst Wessel Song
as a matter of course. One saw portraits of the Führer wherever one went. And one greeted one’s colleagues in
offices and factories, and one’s friends in the street, in trams and buses, everywhere, with one’s right arm
outstretched and with the two magic words that expressed all one’s love and reverence for the godlike Leader, all
one’s hopes, all one’s dreams, all one’s pride—all the joy of those splendid days: “Heil Hitler!”
ambassador had greeted the King of England—at that time, also Emperor of India—with those triumphant words and
that gesture. England was amazed, but said nothing. Could say nothing, for there was nothing to be said. There was only
a fact to be faced: the fact that Hitler ruled over eighty million people who adored him, and that, in those people, a new
soul was rapidly taking birth—or rather, that the old, real, everlasting Aryan Soul was re-awakening in them. “Deutschland,
erwache!”—“Germany, awake!” These words of the early poet of National Socialism had not only the
honour of becoming one of the battle-cries of the Movement; not only were they written upon the standards of the Party formations,
but they had rung through the hearts of the German people as a supernatural signal calling the dead to life. And Germany
had awakened indeed.
And the people of the Earth were
watching her—some, already, with hateful envy, and fear; many with genuine admiration; some with love; with the certitude
that Hitler’s New Order was the first step towards the sort of world they had always wanted. Glorious days!
