Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the January 25-28th, 1942 dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down by trusted aide, attorney Heinrich Heim.  Included in this episode:

  • Hitler speaks of his love of dogs, human origins, beauty of ancient Greeks, cosmic theories, his preference for art over politics;

  • Women should not be in politics - Men run the state, women run the home;

  • Foreign blood in war - the social caste system in Britain needs changing - National-Socialism encourages the selection of the fittest;
  • Difficulties in getting hold of the German economy - negotiating with adversaries - Jews must leave Europe.

The edition of Hitler's Table Talk being used was translated by Norman Cameron and R.H. Stevens, published by Enigma Books, New York, and can be found as a pdf here


Thanks for the invite...A table Talks study hour is a great idea for a radio show, it looks like I have a lot of catching up to do as you are already on episode 23! :)

You are very well-spoken and well-informed. I appreciate your comments at Daily Stormer; from those, I know you will contribute value to any discussion here, as you did in your other comment: http://carolynyeager.net/comment/1554#comment-1554

Perhaps a female Squadron lead by Hanna Reitsch would have been useful?
"In 1936 Reitsch met Ernst Udet, head of the Technical Branch of the Ministry of Aviation and the highest-scoring German fighter ace to survive World War I. At the time, she was working on the development of dive brakes for gliders. After demonstrating the use of dive brakes in a vertical dive before Udet, other Luftwaffe generals and German aircraft designers, she was awarded the honorary rank of Flugkapitän, the first woman ever so honored. In 1937 she was designated as a Luftwaffe civilian test pilot, a post she would hold until the end of World War II. Reitsch and Udet shared a passion for flying and developed a close professional relationship that lasted until Udet, depressed by the crushing demands of his job, committed suicide in November 1941."
In fact, as RAF pilots were only too aware, the Luftwaffe could easily achieve local air superiority over their targets in southern England, and the RAF shortage was in pilots not aircraft. Had the Luftwaffe used better offensive tactics - as demanded by the aircrews themselves - such as allowing the escort fighters to roam more freely from the bombers, then German losses could have been lower and attacks more effective. Knocking out British RDF (radar) stations and systematically destroying RAF fighter bases would have severely limited RAF Fighter Command's ability to effectively defend Southern and Eastern England. If the sudden change in Luftwaffe tactics to area bombing of cities hadn't been made, (in reprisal for small scale RAF raids on Berlin), the RAF would have been forced to progressively retreat north and west, with an increasingly serious pilot shortage. In this case, peace talks with Germany would be highly likely, and Churchill wouldn't have remained Prime Minister for very long."

Again, another lesson on the depth of Hitler's all-embracing World view that starkly contrasts with the characters with whom he was at war.
Any negative assessment of Hitler cannot cope with such characteristics - and that includes his moving away from the conventional and traditional views. No wonder Hitler was feared - is still being feared by by the shonks whose own world view cannot tolerate a positive image of Adolf Hitler. 
...and Hitler defines gallantry but rejects misogyny - and I think he spent value-time with Winifred Wagner ... much food for thought...

Regarding the German economy, I had no idea that Hungary had broken away from the Internation Jew's "web of debt" last year; making it the first European nation to do so since Germany did it in 1932.
There's a short article about it at the following link: http://americanfreepress.net/?p=12418
I would love to know more about this. The article seems to say that Hungarian success is validating the National Socialist economic miracle.

Hello, Carolyn.
Thank you for your excellent Hitler’s Table Talk series.
I am not able to download episode 23. When I try to download it, I get “Page not found”.

Should work.

It works now, Carolyn.
Thank you.
