A new translation of Adolf’s talks

Or The younger brother of Boromir Before we begin translating each talk from Werner Jochmann’s 2000 edition, published in German, I must clarify a few points. Hitler’s after-dinner talks have been repudiated both by some white nationalists (those who are Christian and sympathetic to National Socialism), and by anti-Christian liberals like Richard Carrier who resent…

The Führer’s monologues (ix)

This edition The texts published here are all part of Martin Bormann’s collection of Führergespräche (Führer talks). They are printed in unabridged form, retaining their chronological order. As a rule, Heim summarised the content in a note immediately after each conversation. Only in a few cases did he add statements to later notes, resulting in…

The Führer’s monologues (viii)

However, even in the context of a brief sketch, references to facts that belong to the secured state of knowledge cannot be avoided. First and foremost, Hitler bears witness to himself in his…

The Führer’s monologues (v)

If this rather light-hearted handling of the texts—and the examples could be multiplied—already suggests restraint about Picker’s tradition, the critical reserve is reinforced by two marginal notes by Bormann. In Picker’s record of the conversation of 12 May 1942,[1] the head of the Party Chancellery complains: ‘This transcript is in many cases quite inaccurate, since…

The Führer’s monologues (iv)

Editor’s note: In ‘The resurrected Jew’ I wrote: ‘With the characteristic symmetry of the Renaissance, Mantegna composed this Resurrection in which the resurrected Jew is the luminous axis of the scene… Always keep in mind that the doctrine of the Resurrection was plagiarised by the Jews who originated the Christian sect. They simply used the…
