Ancestry site puts Hitler's war service online

LONDON (Reuters) – A British genealogy website has put Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler's World War One military service records online, alongside those of more than a million other soldiers who fought for Germany.

Ancestry.co.uk ( http://www.ancestry.co.uk ), which bills itself as Britain's leading family history website, has begun the online launch of the Bavarian WWI Personnel Rosters, a collection of records showing the military service activities of 1.5 million soldiers who fought with the Bavarian Regiment in the "war to end all wars."

The documents include those of then 25-year-old volunteer Lance Corporal Adolf Hitler, whose record describes him as a "Catholic," an "Artist" and a "Messenger (bike rider) for the Regiment," whose role was to carry dispatches back and forth from the command staff to units near the battlefield.

His records detail injuries including "lightly wounded at Le Barque by an artillery grenade in the thigh" in October 1916 and "gassed at La Montagne, taken to hospital" in October 1918.

They show Hitler was awarded five medals, decorations and other awards, including the Iron Cross twice, 1st and 2nd Class.

The paper originals are held by the Bavaria State Archives, which is working in partnership with Ancestry.co.uk to launch this collection, Ancestry said in a statement on its website.

Individual records include the soldier's name, rank, date and place of birth, details of active service, religion, status or occupation, marital status, parents' names, and address.

"As Germany becomes more comfortable with the idea of exploring its own military past -- and in particular World War One -- it is important that no matter which side of the war our ancestors fought on, we all have the opportunity to remember them," Ancestry.co.uk International Content Director Dan Jones said in the statement.

"Over the past century, Germans have migrated around the world and so we expect these records to be of interest to many people and in many countries."

‘Mother’s death fuelled Hitler’s hatred for Jews’

PTI, 9 December 2009, 01:16am IST

JERUSALEM: German dictator Adolf Hitler’s hatred for Jews may have stemmed from his belief that his mother was poisoned to death by a Jewish doctor, a new book has claimed.

In his book ‘November 9: How World War I Led To The Holocaust’, author Joachim Riecker claims that the death of Hitler’s mother Klara, who was diagnosed with breast cancer, left an indelible mark on the then 18-year-old Adolf.

Klara’s doctor, Eduard Bloch, had administered iodoform on her which was then the standard treatment for breast cancer, Ha’aretz reported. She died from the treatment in 1907 at a young age of 47. "Hitler never forgave the Jewish doctor," Riecker told The Telegraph.

"In conversations with aides such as Josef Goebbels, Hitler referred to the Jews as being like TB and himself as a ‘healer’ who had to stamp it, and consequently them, out," Riecker noted.

Meanwhile, Hitler’s war record was among hundreds of thousands of World War I documents to be published on an online archive. Among the soldiers named is 25-year-old Lance Corporal Adolf Hitler, described as an artist, of Catholic religion.

Hitler's hatred of Jews 'driven by belief they stole victory from Germany in WWI'

By Daily Mail Reporter - Last updated at 10:10 AM on 30th December 2009

A new book published in Germany says the murder of six million Jews in WW2 was due to Hitler’s belief that they “stole” victory from the country in the First World War.

'In his madness Hitler was convinced that the ‘Jewish poison’ had done the same thing to his beloved Germany in 1918 what the ‘cancer poison’ had done to his beloved mother in 1907,' wrote historian and journalist Dr.Joachim Riecker

'November 9: How World War One Led to the Holocaust' examines the speeches both public and private of Hitler to try to solve the riddle of how a dictator could morph into the industrial-scale murderer of an entire people.

'The core of his hatred lies at the defeat of Germany in WW1,' said Riecker, 'where Hitler blamed the Jews for defeat of the country, the collapse of the monarchy and the ruination of millions.'

Dr. Riecker discounts previously held theories that Hitler began hating the Jews because a Jewish doctor called Eduard Bloch unsuccessfully treated his mother Klara.

He added: 'Adolf Hitler loved only two things in his life: his mother and the ‘German Reich’. His mother died in 1907 very painfully from breast cancer which was seen at that time as the result of blood poisoning.'

“Hitler saw the state ‘poisoned’ from within. Hitler lived in Munich, where Jews played a leading role in the revolution against the monarchy on Nov. 9th 1918. So suddenly the delusion came to his mind, that the Jews where the reason for the ‘inner poisoning’ of Germany and that they had stolen the victory from Germany.

'And since this delusion revived the traumatic experience of the death of his mother, he developed the fanatic will to annihilate the "Jewish poison" - and thought that killing the Jews was the way to lead Germany
to world domination.

'His anti-Semitism had nothing to do with Dr. Bloch.'

21.12.2009 - Britische Zeitungen diffamieren deutschen Hitler-Forscher

Der deutsche Historiker Joachim Riecker hat ein Buch über Hitlers Judenhass geschrieben. Britische Zeitungen veröffentlichten entstellende Artikel zu der Monografie. Jetzt kämpft der seriöse Forscher um seinen Ruf. Im Interview mit SPIEGEL ONLINE zeigt sich Riecker entsetzt - und erwartet eine Korrektur.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Herr Riecker, Sie haben ein Buch über Hitler und den Holocaust geschrieben. Ihre zentrale These in "Hitlers 9. November" lautet, die Niederlage Deutschlands im Ersten Weltkrieg sei einer der hauptsächlichen Gründe für Hitlers antisemitischen Wahn. Nun haben das Boulevardblatt "Daily Mail" und die Zeitung "Daily Telegraph" behauptet, Sie hätten in Ihrem Buch geschrieben, ursächlich für den Judenhass sei die "falsche Behandlung" der Mutter Hitlers durch den jüdischen Hausarzt. Sie werden sogar wörtlich zitiert. Hat die "Daily Mail" je mit Ihnen gesprochen?

Riecker: Nein. Der Autor bezog seine Informationen offenbar von einer obskuren österreichischen Website mit englischsprachigen Artikeln, auf der mein Buch fehlerhaft rezensiert wurde. Dort waren die mir zugeschriebenen Zitate erstmals zu lesen.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Wer Ihr Buch aufmerksam liest, findet keinen Hinweis darauf, dass Sie die These des US-Historikers Binion stützen, der den Judenhass Hitlers unter anderem auch auf die Behandlungsmethoden des Hausarztes zurückführt. Sie weisen ihn sogar in einem Kapitel explizit zurück. Trotzdem werden Sie von "Daily Mail" mit den Worten zitiert, Hitler habe "diesem jüdischen Arzt nie vergeben" und sei deshalb zum Antisemiten geworden.

Riecker: Diese Behauptung ist schlichtweg Unsinn. Der Allgemeinarzt Eduard Bloch, der 1907 Hitlers Mutter behandelt hatte, lebte bei der Besetzung Österreichs durch die Wehrmacht 1938 noch immer in Linz. Er wurde unter den Schutz der Gestapo gestellt, konnte seinen Besitz regulär verkaufen und 1940 mit seiner Ehefrau in die USA emigrieren. Die Historikerin Brigitte Hamann hat kürzlich ein Buch über Eduard Bloch veröffentlicht und zitiert Hitler sogar mit der Bemerkung, der ehemalige Hausarzt seiner Mutter sei "ein Edeljude".

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Welche Folgen hatte die Meldung der "Daily Mail" für Sie?

Riecker: Unter Berufung auf die "Daily Mail" wurden die mir fälschlich zugeschriebenen Zitate weltweit von mehreren Zeitungen verbreitet, so etwa von der "Times of India" oder der großen israelischen Tageszeitung "Haaretz" - und zwar jedes Mal unter Nennung meines Namens. Auch in Informationsdiensten der israelischen Regierung sind sie bereits zu lesen, so auch auf der Website von Israels Botschaft beim Vatikan.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Auch die Bloggerszene hat ungeprüft die Darstellung der "Daily Mail" übernommen. Fürchten Sie um Ihren Ruf als seriöser Journalist der "Märkischen Allgemeinen Zeitung", die zum Verlag der renommierten "Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung" gehört?

Riecker: Natürlich. Der Holocaust ist ein hoch sensibles Thema. Ein Autor kann durch solche Falschmeldungen schnell als unseriös gelten. Schlimmeres möchte ich mir jetzt gar nicht vorstellen.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Werden Sie juristisch gegen die "Daily Mail" vorgehen?

Riecker: Diese Möglichkeit halte ich mir offen. Zunächst einmal erwarte ich, dass "Daily Mail" und die übrigen Zeitungen einen Artikel veröffentlichen, der die Thesen meines Buches korrekt wiedergibt. Es gibt entsprechende Gespräche. Mittlerweile ist im "Telegraph" eine Korrektur erschienen. Der Schaden, der durch die Berichterstattung in anderen Medien entstanden ist, kann dadurch nicht wieder gut gemacht werden. Speziell im Hinblick auf Israel empfinde ich das als sehr bedauerlich.

Das Interview führte Severin Weiland

Hitler was no idiot, says secret report

A rarely seen French secret report on Adolf Hitler is among thousands of documents on 1920s Germany that are about to emerge from obscurity as part of a major overhaul of the French National Archives.

The yellowed, hand-written note from 1924 features a photograph of Hitler in a suit and tie, sporting his trademark side-parting and moustache. It is part of a treasure trove that had been gathering dust in a Paris mansion for decades.

"He is not an idiot but rather a very cunning demagogue," says the note on Hitler by an anonymous agent.

The agent presents Hitler as "the German Mussolini" and notes that he runs paramilitary groups "of the fascist type", but does not raise any particular alarm about the man who would go on to lead Nazi Germany and launch World War II.

Part of a huge archive from the period when French troops occupied part of Germany after World War I, the Hitler report was stored separately from the rest of the papers in a metal cabinet where France keeps its most important documents.

Built in 1791 during the French Revolution, it contains 800 pieces including the diary of beheaded King Louis XVI, the last letter written by his doomed wife Queen Marie-Antoinette, Napoleon's will and France's successive constitutions.

Seen only by a very privileged few, the Hitler report has now been extracted from the cabinet and will soon be available for historians to study, along with tens of thousands of other papers dating back to the French occupation of Germany.

Those documents were transported to Paris in 1930 and have been stored ever since in the bowels of the National Archives, housed in a magnificent early 18th century residence in the heart of the historic Marais district.

'Racist'
The papers, which include everything from spy reports on politicians to details of German industrial techniques that the French hoped to appropriate, were not analysed or indexed.

As a result, they remained hidden in more than 6,000 boxes, an unmanageable mass of raw material, inaccessible to historians and slowly deteriorating as paper-clips rusted, dust accumulated and ink faded from sheets as fine as cigarette paper.

All that changed four years ago, when the Archives launched a conservation project to examine every single one of the papers and create a detailed index that will be posted online.

"On both sides of the Rhine, there was a very strong demand from historians to work on the inter-war period, and particularly the roots of the Second World War," Isabelle Neuschwander, director of the Archives, said.

She said the newly organised archive would be moved to a new state-of-the-art storage facility which is being built in a Paris suburb. There, the papers will be kept in much safer conditions and will be accessible to any researcher.

As well as Hitler, the French agents in Germany scrutinised other men who would go on to become powerful Nazis including Joseph Goebbels, Hermann Goering and Heinrich Himmler.

The Himmler note goes straight to the point: the first word is "racist".

Industrial espionage
Also under the French spotlight was Konrad Adenauer, the then mayor of Cologne who would become the architect of the West German state after World War II. But whoever wrote the Adenauer report did not take the full measure of the man.

"Competent but drawn to subordinate roles," the note says.

Michele Conchon, an archivist who has been working full-time on the German papers for the past four years, said that while the most eye-catching pieces were the reports on famous Nazis, they were not the most valuable to historians.

"That is not what interests me most. This archive is extremely rich in what it can teach us on daily life in Germany between the wars," she said, surrounded by boxes of dusty files.

She mentioned reports on violent incidents in which ordinary Germans showed their anger at the French occupation, burning French flags or attacking isolated soldiers guarding buildings.

The boxes also contain reports detailing German technological brilliance in areas as diverse as aviation, pharmaceuticals and wireless communications.

"There are reports of factory visits that were probably carried out with the aim of industrial espionage," she said.

The secret service reports even offer insights into the lives of ordinary Germans - and into the nervousness of the French, who kept close tabs on German public opinion.

Thus, a report on an obscure schoolteacher, named as Mr Hinze, reveals surprisingly close scrutiny.

"Schoolteacher, 31, neutral, no obvious prejudices, content with our occupation which ensures order, hopes to see us go when peace will be signed," says the report on Mr Hinze.

Letter shows Adolf Hitler's affection for British

The letter is the very model of courtesy, expressing warm thanks for the British journalist's "kind invitation" and speaking enthusiastically about the "truly cordial relationship" between the British and German peoples. It is also from Adolf Hitler and has sold at auction at Bonhams for the knockdown price of pound stg. 8000 ($13,117).

"It was the most incredible bargain," said the American buyer, Kenneth Rendell, owner of a World War II museum in Massachusetts. He would, he said, have paid up to pound stg. 50,000.

The letter, dated September 30, 1931, was Hitler's response to an invitation from Sefton Delmer, the Daily Express's man in Berlin, to write an article about Britain's economic crisis.

Although Hitler declined, the typewritten letter is revealing about the warmth of Hitler's feelings towards the British. Writing of his hopes that a new accord would arise between Britain and Germany to replace the settlement made after World War I, Hitler said: "I hope . . . that out of this crisis a new readiness will grow up in Britain to submit the last 12 years to a reappraisal. I should be happy if, as a result of this, the unhappy war-psychosis could be overcome on such a scale as to permit the realisation of the truly cordial relationship between the British and the German peoples so eagerly desired by myself and my movement."

He went on to say that, "greatly honoured as I am by your kind invitation", he would not write the proposed article because his views would be seen as a criticism and "part of the British public might consider it presumptuous of me".

Recalling in his memoirs trying to persuade the Nazi leader to write for the Express, Delmer wrote: "What kind of fee do you think brash young reporter Delmer offered Hitler? Ten guineas! Hitler declined with an elaborately courteous letter."

JERUSALEM: German dictator Adolf Hitler’s hatred for Jews may have stemmed from his belief that his mother was poisoned to death by a Jewish doctor, a new book has claimed.

Ook niks nieuws dacht ik?
Als mijn geheugen me niet in de steek laat meen ik dat al gelezen te hebben in het boek "Hitler als Psychopaat" van Robert Waite.(en dat is toch al een tijd geleden uitgegeven)

Mvg,

Hitler was bicycle dispatch rider in WWI

Adolf Hitler was only a lance corporal during World War I but his commanders saw the future German dictator's leadership potential as "very good".

That's according to Bavarian military records added on Tuesday to the genealogy website Ancestry.com's database.

The handwritten pages note the future Fuehrer's occupation as "artist" and say he was his regiment's bicycle dispatch rider at one point.

He volunteered for service only about two weeks after the outbreak of hostilities in 1914 and fought in several battles before being gassed in 1918 and hospitalised.

Hitler received both the Iron Cross 1st Class and 2nd Class for bravery.

The records are among those of 1.5 million Bavarian soldiers kept in state archives in Munich.
