  • 23. Adolph Hitler – Austrian-born German • Politician and the leader of the National Socialist He was the ruler of Germany from 1933 to 1945, serving as chancellor from 1933 to 1934 as Fuhrer from 1934 to 1945. – A decorated veteran of World War I, Hitler joined the Nazi Party in 1920 and became its leader in 1921.
  • 24. Adolph Hitler – Following his imprisonment after a failed coup in 1923, he gained support by promoting nationalism, antisemitism and anti- communism with charismatic oratory and propaganda including the writing of “Mein Kampf”. He was appointed chancellor in 1933, and quickly established a totalitarian and fascist dictatorship. – Hitler pursued a foreign policy with the declared goal of seizing Lebensraum("living space") for Germany, directing the resources of the state toward this goal. His army invaded Poland in 1939, leading to the outbreak of World War II in Europe
  • 25. Mein Kampf – The great masses of the people will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one. – The personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew. – Was there any form of filth or profligacy, particularly in cultural life, without at least one Jew involved in it? If you cut even cautiously into such an abscess, you found, like a maggot in a rotting body, often dazzled by the sudden light - a kike! I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.
  • 26. Hitler • a 1942 secret profile of Adolf Hitler compiled by the OSS. Here are some excerpts. • PERSONAL APPEARANCE • • Hitler never allows anyone to see him while he is naked or bathing. He refuses to use cologne or scents of any sort on his body • • No matter how warm he feels, Hitler will never take off his coat in public • • In 1923, Nazi press secretary Dr. Sedgwick tried to convince Hitler to get rid of his trademark mustache or grow it normally. Hitler answered: “Do not worry about my mustache. If it is not the fashion now, it will be later because I wear it!” • SOCIAL BEHAVIOR • • While dining with the others, Hitler will allow the conversation to linger on general topics, but after a couple of hours he will inevitably begin one of his many monologues. These speeches are flawless from start to finish because he rehearses them any time he gets a moment. • • His favorite topics include: “When I was a soldier,” “When I was in Vienna,” “When I was in prison,” and “When I was the leader in the early days of the party.” • • If Hitler begins speaking about Wagner and the opera, no one dares interrupt him. He will often sermonize on this topic until his audience falls asleep.
  • 27. Hitler • PERSONAL HABITS • • Hitler has no interest in sports or games of any kind and never exercised, except for an occasional walk. • • He paces frequently inside rooms, always to the same tune that he whistles to himself and always diagonally across the room, from corner to corner • • Hitler’s handwriting is impeccable. When famous psychologist Carl Jung saw Hitler’s handwriting in 1937, he remarked: “Behind this handwriting I recognize the typical characteristics of a man with essentially feminine instinct.” • ENTERTAINMENT • • Hitler loves the circus. He takes real pleasure in the idea that underpaid performers are risking their lives to please him. • • He went to the circus on several occasions in 1933 and sent extremely expensive chocolates and flowers to the female performers. Hitler even remembered their names and would worry about them and their families in the event of an accident. • • He isn’t interested in wild animal acts, unless there is a woman in danger • • Hitler staff secretly made films for him of torture and execution of political prisoners, which he very much enjoyed viewing. • • He loves newsreels – especially when he is in them. • • He adores gypsy music, Wagner’s operas, and especially American college football marches and alma maters.
  • 28. 10 Things you didn’t know about Hitler • His Nazi Rallies were Inspired by Harvard Cheerleaders: • He was a draft dodger: • As an Austrian, he was required to register for the draft at the age of 20. Historians believe that his failure to do this is the reason he changed addresses so frequently in this period. After five years, Austrian authorities finally tracked him to Munich. They returned him to Austria, where he promptly failed his military physical, was judged unfit for combat, and let go. • He was a chronic hypochondriac: • He feared disease, and diagnosed himself with numerous conditions, mostly intestinal disorders. He treated these with medications containing poisonous wood alcohol, atropine and strychnine, and bacteria cultivated from human feces. He resorted to leeches to lower his blood pressure. And near the end of the war, he became increasingly concerned about “fresh air poisoning.” •
  • 29. 10 Things you didn’t know about Hitler • He became a vegetarian after attending the autopsy of a girlfriend: • She killed herself after being actively pursued by Hitler. He was grief stricken, and felt compelled to attend the autopsy. Afterwards, he refused to eat meat, and took every opportunity to ruin meat for others. He would often make jokes about preparing a pudding made from his blood, and called beef broth “corpse tea” • Hitler enjoyed playing practical jokes on his staff: • One of his favorite targets was his foreign minister. He would have a staffer call the minister with the news that Hitler was furious with something he had said. Hitler would listen on the phone, providing further instructions to drive the minister to a nervous breakdown. One prank famously backfired, when he sent Ernst Hanfstaengl into Spain on a plane full of Gestapo, and made him think he was being set up for a suicide mission. Hanfstaengl took an opportunity while refueling to board a train to Switzerland, and before anyone could let him in on the joke, he turned himself in to the Allies, becoming an invaluable source of information. • Hitler was an accomplished whistler: • He experimented briefly with playing the harmonica and flute, and sang occasionally, but whistling was his best talent. He could whistle loudly and on pitch, and could even reproduce long passages from Wagner with incredible accuracy.
  • 30. 10 Things you didn’t know about Hitler • He was a rabid fan of cinema: • Having been inspired to a life of oratory prowess by the 1910 film The Tunnel, Hitler was a lifelong fan of movies. After gaining power, he regularly held private screenings for his inner circle. His favorite actresses were Greta Garbo and Shirley Temple. He didn”t care for Charlie Chaplin, even before he made The Great Dictator, and it’s doubtful he ever saw it. He also enjoyed King Kong, even taking to celebrating victories by pounding his chest. • He had a remarkable sweet tooth: • Hitler regularly ate up to two pounds of chocolate a day, in addition to pastries and hot chocolate with copious amounts of whipped cream. He generally took his tea with seven teaspoons of sugar, and Ernst Hanfstaengl once witnessed Hitler adding spoonfuls of sugar to a glass of red wine. • He is seen in a famous photograph taken at the beginning of World War One: • It is a picture taken by Heinrich Hoffman, who incidentally would later become Hitler’s personal photographer, on the day Germany declared war on Russia in 1914. Hitler can be seen, just an anonymous face in the crowd, clearly very excited by the prospect of war. • He would serve as a dispatch runner in the war, thriving on the terrible conditions at the front, before mustard gas damaged his vocal chords, forcing Hitler to learn to speak again.
  • 31. 10 Things you didn’t know about Hitler • His dog had a rather large effect on his war policy: • Hitler was very proud of his German Shepherd named Blondi. He spent countless hours training her, and would even interrupt meetings with generals to practice her tricks. The generals realized that if Blondi did well, Hitler was in a better mood, and more likely to take their advice. If she did poorly, he would become sullen and stubborn. One of the officers later said, “I sometimes had the impression that the outcome of the Russian campaign depended more on Blondi than the German general staff.
