mein kampf summary

Still, bigotry toward Jews persisted, even toward Holocaust survivors. Academic historians, by contrast, often portray Hitler as a cipher, a nobody.

Reinhard Heydrich, one of the chief planners of the Holocaust, thought that, once the Soviet Union had been defeated, the Jews of Europe could be left to die in the Gulag. One can, however, keep the entire monstrous landscape in view without minimizing the culpability of perpetrators on either side.


After the war he stayed in the army, but in intelligence. See Also.


Hitler suffered a broken and dislocated arm in the melee, was arrested, and was imprisoned at Landsberg. Never before and never again have I heard Adolf Hitler speak as he did in that hour, as we stood there alone under the stars, as though we were the only creatures in the world. Since , Germany had supported the Republic of China militarily and industrially. In , Goebbels triumphantly broadcast news of the Katyn Forest massacre, in the course of which the Soviet secret police killed more than twenty thousand Poles.

Yet Hitler was desperate to remain in the Army rather than to have to face a return to his pre-war existence, and the evidence suggests that he was willing to come to terms with the new order to achieve this end. The Bolsheviks were the communist group that gained power in Russia in and established the Soviet Union. The fire was blamed on the Communists and the Communist party was banned in Germany. In , a worldwide depression hit Germany and Hitler promised to rid Germany of Jews and Communists and to reunite the German speaking part of Europe. These types were said to be most prevalent in north, central, and southern France respectively. Even the graves in the cemetery where his grandmother had been buried were rendered unrecognisable. After Hitler came to power, sales of Mein Kampf skyrocketed, making him a rich man. His dream of a racially "pure" empire would tolerate no Jews.
