1919 signed letter contains Hitler's first known stance on Jewish 'removal'

By Dana Garrett, CNN

New York (CNN) - A signed letter by Adolf Hitler, which contains what is believed to be the earliest written expression of his views on Jews and anti-Semitism, was unveiled at a press conference in New York on Tuesday by the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Rabbi Marvin Hier said the letter, written in 1919, is "one of the most important documents in the entire history of the Third Reich."

Wearing white gloves to protect the fragile, yellowing document, Hier, founder and dean of the Wiesenthal Center, pointed out what he considered to be the most significant phrase in the four-page, typed letter - the words "Entfernung der Juden," German for "removal of Jews" - which Hitler wrote must be the government's "final goal."


"In 1919 he wrote this. Twenty-two years later he implemented it as Chancellor of the Third Reich," Hier said. "He removed the Jews altogether."

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish human rights organization, purchased the letter from a private dealer for $150,000 and will put it on permanent display in July at the center's Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.

Hitler was a 30-year-old veteran of World War I when he wrote the letter on September 16, 1919. At the time, he was working for the propaganda unit of the German army, Hier said. It was Hitler's supervisor, Capt. Karl Mayr, who assigned him the task of articulating the army's position on the Jews for Adolf Gemlich, who was an army spy. (At about the time he wrote the letter, he also attended a meeting of the German Workers' Party to find out more about them, at Mayr's request. Later, it would be the National Socialist Workers' Party, and Hitler would be its chairman.)

The letter, which was written on a German army typewriter, is addressed to Gemlich. It was authenticated in 1988, according to the Wiesenthal Center.

In the letter's English translation provided by the Wiesenthal Center, Hitler identifies Judaism as a race, not a religion, that has been preserved "through a thousands years of inbreeding" and is only concerned with "the pursuit of money and power."

"The result of which is that a non-German race lives among us with its feelings, thoughts and aspirations, while having all the same rights as we do," Hitler wrote.

He warned against anti-Semitism "born of purely emotional ground," which he wrote would only lead to pogroms - referencing the organized mob attacks that targeted Jews in Russia and, later, Germany. Hitler's letter makes clear he had a larger objective in mind. "The final goal must be the removal of Jews," he wrote. "To accomplish these goals, only a government of national power is capable and never a government of national weakness."

Hier said the letter was found in 1945 in the Nazi Archives near Nuremberg by an American soldier, William F. Ziegler, and sold to an historical documents dealer.

It has remained in private hands since then. Hier said a dealer offered him the letter in 1988, but then sold it to another collector before the Wiesenthal Center could verify its authenticity.

When it was offered a second time, Hier said there was no hesitation.

"We knew immediately that the Gemlich letter is absolutely historic. There is nothing like it in the world," he said.

Hier said an unsigned "office copy" of the letter exists in Munich, which scholars have known about, but that the copy now in the hands of the Wiesenthal Center is the only signed copy. It has never been publicly displayed.

Hier said the letter is significant in large part is because there is no known signed order by Hitler for the extermination of the Jews. Instead, it was the No.2 man in the Reich, Hermann Goering, who gave the order in July 1941 to Reinhard Heydrich, the head of the Nazis' security apparatus, to carry out "the final solution of the Jewish question."

"This is the first document and only document of its kind that deals with the Jews exclusively and postulates the solution," Hier said of the Hitler letter.

Whether Hitler had in mind concentration camps and mass extermination at the time is not a question that can be answered by this document, Hier said. "But I can tell you that Hitler in 1919 said we don't want any Jews in the country that I live, and I don't want them removed by corner pogroms. I need them removed by a legal system where the government legally removes them," Hier said. "That is unprecedented." he added.

Hier said he hopes the letter, which will be part of an interactive display in Los Angeles, will be used to teach students young and old about demagogues and the consequences of taking them lightly.

He said if people had taken bets in 1919," they all would have bet this is a lot of nonsense, nothing would happen like this. And 22 years later, it happened exactly as he wrote it.," he said.

    God has given Israel to the Jews. There is nothing that mankind can do. Israel is the land of the Jews. God almighty will destroy any man that tries to destroy Israel for the Palestines. Look at the history; surrounded by Arab states and they were unable to defeat the Jews. Why, because it is Gods will. Thank you oh God of Israel.

      Fast facts:

      1. There is no historical, biblical or anthropological evidence that today's Askenazi "Jews" represent the uncorrupted seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob today.
      2. If today's Jews – Jews by conversion and not by genetics – are not Israel, then there is no right (implicit or explicit) for them to "return to the land"
      3. Today's Israelis (they do not call themselves "Israelites") have none of the biblical markers of Israel. Crediting them with a Covenantal right to the land should be questioned on biblical grounds alone.
      4. Today's land of "Israel" in occupied Palestine is currently practicing ethnic cleansing and racial apartheid – activities clearly associated with Nazi Germany.
      5. Today's land of "Israel" is not in compliance with numerous U.N. mandates – a condition for their continued existence per their original charter.
      6. Today's dispensational eschatology as taught in mainstream "Judeo-Christianity" is seriously and fatally flawed in presuming that today's Jews are the Covenant People, and that there is prophetic significance to their "return" and the establishment of a new temple in Jerusalem.

      Mainstream "Judeo-Christianity" is as flawed and dangerous as any "extreme" or "radical" religion, and is not Christianity.

      Where does the Bible say that Palestine (a portion of which what we now call "Israel") was given to the "Jews?" I have asked this question of many "Judeo-Christian" teachers and have not received an answer.

      BTW – Abraham, Isaac and even Jacob himself (the patriarchs of the Hebrew faith) were not "Jews" and did not consider themselves "Jewish". The term "Jew" doesn't even appear in the Bible until after the split between the houses of Israel (see 1 Kings 18) and is a reference to only the southern two tribes. Today's Jewish scholarship even admits this: the vast majority of Israelites were never called "Jews" (a term coined by the Babylonians in the 6th century BC as a reference to the southern house: Judah and Benjamin alone).

      I see folks in this forum appeal to history, but they themselves know little of it!

    Before anyone attempts to espouse their revisionist history propaganda and falsehoods I would encourage the remaining bunch of you to research the truth about Israel's history, the Judeo-Christian heritage which must be secured at all costs, and the outcome and reality of war. Last time I checked the Native Americans within the United States haven't attempted to reclaim their land yet but certainly have every reason to do so...just like our brothers and sisters in Israel. And be wise to the mob rule mentality that attempts to distort any intellectual discussion with graphic imagery that is always shown out of context, slander that attempts to defeat the soul, and lies that bend truths. What was once known to be fact is now disputed as accurate because that is the only way to win a battle when one lies and is disinterested in truth.

      They First Nation people HAVE attempted many times through peaceful negotiation. They couldn't use force because after the Americans had finished [1] shooting them by the thousand [2] giving them smallpox infected blankets as a supposedly "goodwill gesture" [a bit like 'hang your clothes here till after your shower" don't you think?] [3] systematically starving them and [4] trying to push them into the sea there WEREN'T ENOUGH LEFT.
      The Jews stayed in their homes till it was too late because they had been born in Germany; they fought for Germany in WW1 and couldn't believe their fellow Germans could do it. Can you Muppets take your brains out of neutral before engaging in adult discussions?

    • Jim

      Actually, Native Americans have tried to take back lands they claimed quite a few times. That was the focus of many of the early "Indian Wars" against colonists and then against the US. Now, they instead use the courts and/or protests. You may recall that decades ago they tried to reclaim Alcatraz after it was shut down. In any case, at some point it becomes moot or recursive - if the Souix (for instance) were to get back their pre-US lands, other tribes could just as legitimately argue/fight to take back lands that the Soiux had taken from them before that time. The Americas were NOT a land of paradaisical peace before the conquestadors and pilgrims came - various Native American tribes routinely took one another's land, enslaved one another, etc.

      June 8, 2011 at 7:28 am |
    • Jim

      Voice of Reason - yes, there was at least one case of Native Americans being given smallpox-infected blankets. However, it was NOT commonplace, nor was it governmental policy. Those two key details (overlooked by almost all who mention it) make it DRAMATICALLY different from anything in the Nazi holocaust.

      But many Palestinians (70%) like to live in Jerusalem. Why because security, food, water, power. When Israel left some of its land for the Palestinians that area fell into disrepair and then the Palestinians got angery at Israel again and wanted even more land that was still successful. Balance of power in warfare is a joke. You mess with the big dog you get attacked. Israel does not play games when it comes to self defence.

    David,

    Anti-Semetic or Anti-German/European Jew, what's difference? 6 million Jews die at the hands of the Nazis for being Jewish. In addition, Hilter was smart enough to take advantage of an entire country, smart enough to play upon want for peace of the Brits and the French (i.e., czechoslovakia, the Sudatenland, Austria) and also managed to start a war that claimed the lives of over 48 million people (including Germans). The man had to have had some brains to pull all of that off.

    As far as Palestine goes, I believe both the Israelis and the Palestinians deserve a homeland and I believe they can coexist if they really try. I also understand that there is a long history of violence and hatred on both sides. Time will tell on this issue.

    The REAL question should be, "WIll we forget about the atrocities of WWII and the Holocaust nd be doomed to repeat them? Oh wait that already occurred in Kosovo, Croatia and Serbia. Remember "only love conquers hate".

      As for Palestine, its a mess and its all our fault and the Jews fault. Instead of expressing good, the took revenge from the Nazis on the Palestinians in the form of Zionism. I think its a little unfair that they get that land all of a sudden. However, there is no hope in fixing this problem now, so hopefully the fight stays between them.

      Actually, that is a long-standing conspiracy theory, but the evidence is pretty lame. Originally, there was the theory that Hitler's grandfather was the son of a Jewish family that Hitler's grandmother was a maid for. The problem? Jews had been expelled from that region centuries before and did not return until after Hitler's father was born. Furthermore, there is no record of the existence of the alleged Jewish grandfather.

      Another attempt was based on some supposed DNA evidence which was put forward by Belgian journalists, not scientists, and the result is highly suspect and anything but conclusive.

      Oh dear, more historical gibberish. Hitler wanted Russia for Liebensraum, a place for Germans to go and farm to support the Thousand Year Reich. It was never intended as a place for Jews. Hell, his einsatzgruppen started killing the Jews immediately behind the first wave of Operation Barbarosa.

      hecep:
      As a scientist myself, I must say that your statements are entirely false. Perhaps as you watch through the video, you may want to pause it and write down the points that you don't understand so that you can research it. Admittedly, Dr. Schroeder primarily speaks to what may be considered a more 'learned' audience (whoever posted it to this forum may have done better with some more suited for the layperson), but your comments, in my opinion, are like telling Stephen Hawking or Paul Davies that their addition and subtraction is nothing but 'fuzzy math' - with all due respect.

      Also, the same goes for you too, Michael.

      @Simon Rollins: If I'm not buying Schroeder's clumsy stuttering effort to fit a square metaphysical peg into the round hole of real science, then I'm certainly not going to blindly accept the rather snobbish chastisement of a poseur such as yourself.

    Hitler was a psychotic, emotionally disturbed excretion that spewed a perverted view on reality. Yet millions of German's went along with his BS. Pretty pathetic! Have we learned from our past stupidity. Based on the worlds tyrants and murdering dictators today, it doesn't seem so....

      @mike hunt: Your post tells me that you're a racist, and therefore someone who'd more likely be for Hitler. Ironic, isn't it.

      Actually the type of personality cult and efforts to incite fear and hatred that Hitler exemplified can be most accurately compared to the following that Sarah Palin has cultivated.

    after world war II became the nwxt great opportunity for the communists , stalin made his non-aggression pact with Adolph Hitler in September 1939. A few day later , Hitler's panzer division rolled into Poland and within four weeks the soviet union and Germany were cutting up Poland - dividing the spoils and the Soviet Unoin had risked nothing.

    Adolf Hitler would look like a boy scout compared to the arab/muslim leaders if they had their way.
