Product Notes

More than any other historical documents, it is the personal private letters written by a people to "their" dictator, Adolf Hitler, that provide the most intimate glimpses of the history of the Third Reich. A cache of more than 100,000 such letters was recently found, hidden in a secret Russian archive. The uncensored letters reveal the true feelings of the German people - their hopes, longings and fears. They include love letters, declarations of loyalty, birthday wishes, and the occasional words of protest. As one man wrote in April 1932, a day after elections made the Hitler an unstoppable force: "We only want Adolf Hitler as leader, as dictator. We National Socialists want to see a ban on all newspapers that inject poison into our Fuehrer, to see Jews classified as what they are... We will give our blood to Adolf Hitler! Take an iron hand and fulfill your program with a dictatorial will. Do not negotiate but act!" Women who wrote particularly ardent letters were monitored by the Gestapo as Hitler feared that his cult of personality could lead to a destabilization of home life in the Reich. As his power became absolute, so the tempo of the letters increased. Like a seismograph, they mirror the change in mood in Nazi Germany, providing a reflection of the German spirit from 1932 to his final days in the bunker.
