Telegram from Heinrich Himmler to Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin-Al Husseini in 1943.


A “newly-discovered” 1943 telegram from Nazi commander Heinrich Himmler to the Mufti of Jerusalem was found in the archives of the National Library of Israel this week. It read:

"The National-Socialist movement of the great Germany has made its fight against world Jewry a guiding principle since its very beginning. For that reason, it has been closely following the battle of freedom-seeking Arabs - and especially in Palestine - against the Jewish invaders.
