    Default Creating the "Hitler Messianic Myth"

    One of my main interests in 3rd Reich study has been the manner with which the NS-Movement managed to propagate the myth among the Volk that Hitler was a demi-god, infallible and sent by fate to redeem the Fatherland and lead it to greatness...
    I recently scored this small (Orange!) 1940-dated booklet titled "Image of the Fuhrer", containing 15 prayers/poems/incantations clearly referring to Hitler as "The One", and "Sent by God"... I've always been interested in learning "how & why" this man was able to lead an otherwise cultured and educated population to place their faith in him as a Godsend...Even my German Oma admitted to me during a conversation: "Ich war auch fanatisch, und habe den Hitler auch verehrt." "I was a fanatic too, and idolized Hitler as well"....
    cheers, Glenn

    An interesting subject Glenn how the German population came to idolise Hitler and his party , the propoganda Ministry and machine of Dr Clubfoot and the use of it in the process has raised my interest recently , books such as this were of course part of the process !
