Item Description...
For several years, while he served in the Danzig senate, Hermann Rauschning discussed matters of religion, politics, and race with Hitler. Increasingly alarmed by Hitler's plans to achieve global power, Rauschning resigned from the senate and assembled his transcriptions and notes taken during these conversations. While much has been written about Hitler's psychological makeup, most of it has been derived from external and posthumous analysis, while the rest of the direct accounts are from the war years. This account begins in 1932, before most of the world was fully aware of Hitler's destructive potential. Nora Levin, a widely read Holocaust writer, named Rauschning "one of the most penetrating analysts of the Nazi period." Many prestigious historians, including Leon Poliakov, Gerhard Weinberg, and Robert Payne, have improved the quality of their own writing with choice quotations from these ideas and frank statements of plans that were kept from the German public at the time.

Hitler's Overt Genocidal Plans against Jews and Slavs: Early Manifestations  Jun 18, 2007
This book has also been published in the English language under the title: HITLER SPEAKS.

Covering events mostly from the early to the middle 1930's, this book fills an important gap in the development of Hitler's thinking. It comes after MEIN KAMPF (1923-1925) and the then-unpublished HITLER'S SECOND BOOK (1928), but before HITLER'S TABLE TALK.

Rauschning elaborates on Hitler's attitudes towards Poland. It becomes obvious that the Fuhrer never saw the 1934 Polish-German Nonaggression Pact as anything more than a temporary expedient, and that he never seriously considered accepting Poland as an ally against the Soviet Union (p. 119). This adds refutation against the claim that WWII had been triggered, in part, by "Polish intransigence".

A common Nazi anti-Semitic theme is the one about Jews being vermin (presumably fit for nothing other than extermination). Interestingly, Nazis also thought that way of Poles. Albert Forster, the Gauleiter of Danzig (Gdansk), referred to Poles as lice (p. 110). (So did Joseph Goebbels, in his diaries).

Rauschning elaborates on Hitler's obsession with Jews. He believed that it was driven in part by Hitler's fear of his partial Jewish ancestry (p. 235).

In his MEIN KAMPF and SECOND BOOK, Hitler had vilified the Jews, and presented Slavic lands as ones to be conquered for lebensraum purposes and filled with German settlers. But what exactly was to be done with the Jews and the Slavs was left to the imagination of the listener. Not so here! Hitler makes direct threats against both Jews and Slavs as biological entities. He speaks of using both Jewish property and Jewish lives as hostages in response to the anti-German actions of other nations (pp. 88-89). (This foreshadows his infamous January 1939 statement, in which he said that, if "international Jewry" caused another war, he would destroy Europe's Jews in response.) He first speaks of resettling Czechs in Siberia (p. 38) and then, repeatedly complaining about the great fecundity of the Slavic peoples (p. 33, 137), proposes to solve this problem through such measures as keeping men and women separated for years (p. 137). He quips: "There are many ways, systematical and comparatively painless, or at any rate bloodless, of causing undesirable races to die out." (p. 138). (In time, the Nazis did implement both active and passive genocidal techniques against the conquered Slavs, as discussed by Raphael Lemkin. The Nazis also worked to develop mass-sterilization methods, preferably ones that could be used covertly against the intended victims).

In this book, Hitler develops his anti-Christian themes, but not as strongly as in the later HITLER'S TABLE TALK. In this work, Hitler refers to Christianity as an effeminate, Jewish invention (p. 49, 235). He trusts that the dogma of the Vicarious Suffering of Christ will give way to acceptance of the new Leader-legislator, who will liberate the faithful from the burden of free will (p. 225). Hitler also clearly exhibits the views of a moral relativist: "There is no such thing as truth, either in the moral or in the scientific sense." (p. 223).

Nazism is often misrepresented as a form of extreme nationalism. In fact, Hitler believed that the concept of the nation was a political expedient of democracy and Liberalism (p. 232), and was just as outdated as the concept of the dynastic feudal state that it had replaced. He wanted the concept of the nation replaced by "purely biological values". (p. 233).

Nazism is also commonly misrepresented as a form of capitalism. In actuality, Hitler scorned both Communism and capitalism, just as he had done earlier in MEIN KAMPF and the SECOND BOOK. In the present work, he commented: "The classless society of the Marxists, he [Hitler] contended, was madness. Order always meant class order. But the democratic notion of a class order based on the moneybag was equally mad. A genuine aristocracy was not born out of the accidentally successful speculations of bright businessmen." (p. 39).
All Jews should read this book!  Mar 14, 2006
To understand why, read my related essay at:
These supposed recollections of private conversations with Hitler were shown in the 1980's (see Der Spiegel 37:92-99, 1985), after investigation by a Swiss schoolteacher (Wolfgang Haenel), to be fraudulent. The book was used as evidence at the Nuremberg trials and also cited in postwar histories (e.g., Rise and Fall of the Third Reich), some still in print.
Richard Pipes, otherwise a splendid historian of the Russian tragedy, also quotes this book.
Hermann Rauschning met Hitler twice, in public forums, and had no private conversations with him. He had a falling out with the regime and then concocted this "memoir." In 1943 he gave a presentation at my alma mater (Wartburg College, Iowa), no doubt to many a reverent ear.
The danger of making Hitler or any other tyrant into such a cartoonish figure is that subsequent generations are lulled into thinking that a potential dictator would present himself as an obvious neurotic. Quite the contrary.
Four stars for historical importance, despite its blatant falsity.
