HIS­TO­RIAN FINDS ‘HITLER’S FIRST AU­TO­BI­OG­RA­PHY’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

ED­IN­BURGH: The first bi­og­ra­phy of Adolf Hitler which pre­sented him as “Ger­many’s saviour” and com­pared him to Je­sus may have been writ­ten by Hitler him­self, a Scot­tish his­to­rian has claimed. Adolf Hitler: Sein Leben und seine Re­den by Vic­tor von Ko­er­ber was the first ma­jor pro­file of Hitler and ap­peared in 1923. Thomas We­ber has un­earthed doc­u­ments which in­di­cates it was “al­most cer­tainly” writ­ten by Hitler as a “shame­less but clever act of self-pro­mo­tion ... liken­ing his mo­ment of po­lit­i­cal­i­sa­tion to Je­sus’ res­ur­rec­tion”. – AFP
