MY PART IN GERMANY’S FIGHT
Dr. Joseph Goebbels. His diary from early 1932 until spring 1933 – while the Nazi party was achieving power and giving birth to Nazi Germany. Softcover. 220pp.Joseph Goebbels. Nazi propaganda minister Joseph’s Goebbels diaries from January 1932 to May 1933 provide a first-hand chronicle of the tumultuous time which saw Adolf Hitler propelled from his civilian headquarters at the Kaiserhof Hotel into the office of Chancellor of Germany.
The day-by-day entries provide riveting reading and reveal long-suppressed facts, such as:
– How the Weimar “democracy” forced the Nazis into fighting elections while banning their newspapers and forbidding them to hold public meetings;
– The campaign of terrorism and murder waged against the NSDAP by the communists;
-The NSDAP’s funding;
-The clash with the socialist Strasserite wing of the party;
-The political intrigues which eventually forced the establishment to offer the post of Chancellor to Hitler after three general elections in one year;
-The burning of the Reichstag;
– The Jewish declaration of war against Germany and the counter-boycott of Jewish shops in German, organized by the author; and much more.
An essential and fascinating account of the Nazi road to power, first published in Germany in 1933, and then in English in 1938 under the title “My Part in Germany’s Fight.”
