3 Much to the chagrin and horror of the world, those unilaterally declared to be racially inferior by this law were eventually systematically exterminated in the gas chambers of Auschwitz, Treblinka, Belzec and more. Dr. Bergman cogently illustrates that Hitler’s henchmen had two defining characteristics. First, they viewed Hitler as a demi-god. ” All textbooks in Nazi Germany had to be approved by the educational authorities and were required to reflect the prevailing worldview and its concomitant values.

The unlikely excuse used for the pogrom was the fact that a seventeen-year-old Polish Jew named Herschel Grynszpan, then living with his uncle in Paris, had murdered a German official in Paris. The main reason for Herschel’s anger was the inhumane treatment his Jewish parents in Germany received from the Nazis. Herschel’s father, Zindel, was born in western Poland and moved to Hanover, Germany, in 1911 to establish a small store.
In general, I have used sources that are well recognized by Hitler scholars as very accurate. The veracity of the English translation of Hitler’s Secret Conversations and Hitler’s Table Talk (compiled by a supporter of Hitler who had his own agenda) has been questioned. Whereas these works are quoted a few times in this book, my conclusions do not rely on them but are well supported by numerous other sources. As research on Hitler progresses I will revise this work to reflect the latest scholarship.
