Adolf Hitler in pre-Chancellor days, signs something for Julius Streicher, NSDAP Gauleiter of Nuremberg.


Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the Dec. 17-31, 1941 dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by trusted aide, attorney Heinrich Heim. Some highlights of this episode:

  • Hitler tells stories about Karl Lueger and Georg von Schoenerer of Vienna, plus other mayors of German cities;

  • The difficulty of building an art collection when Jews are dishonest dealers - finding the Bordone Venus;

  • More on how cooked food causes disease, and the achievements of the Party men;

  • Hitler defends Julius Streicher, who has been removed as Gauleiter of Nuremberg - says Dietrich Eckart had also thought men like Streicher were necessary;

  • Hitler treats his political opponents well;

  • Ruhr industrial district - the need for increased production of coal and iron;

  • Some thoughts on the Japanese.

Anton Adriaan Mussert is one of the founders of the Duch National Socialist Movement. Wiki has a page on him. I'm unable to cut/paste, sorry.
Thank you for all the hard work Caroline and Ray!

It's in Saint Petesburg, not Moscow, and it's a beautiful building itself!
Keep the good work!
