Aloisia V

 

One of the thousands of victims

of the Nazi regime's programme

to kill mentally ill people

was a relative of Adolf Hitler,

two historians said yesterday.

 

The woman,

identified only as Aloisia V,

was 49 when she was gassed

to death on December 6 1940

in Hartheim castle

near the northern Austrian

city of Linz,

Timothy Ryback said.

 

Mr Ryback,

an American

who now lives

in Salzburg

and heads

the Obersalzberg Institute

in Berchtesgaden,

Germany,

said the details

surrounding

the woman's death

surfaced last week,

after Obersalzberg

archivist

Florian Beierl

gained access

to her medical file

at a Vienna

medical institution

where she had

been treated.

30 January 1939

 

Hitler's 'prophecy' speech

to the Reichstag

 

 

'In the course

of my life

I have very often

been a prophet,

and have usually been

ridiculed for it.

 

During the time

of my struggle for power,

it was in the first instance

the Jewish race that received

my prophecies with laughter

- when I said

that I would one day

take over

the leadership of the State,

and with it

that of the whole nation,

and that I would then,

among many other things,

settle the Jewish problem.

 

I think

that for some time now

they have been laughing

on the other side

of their face (laughter).

 

Today I will once more

be a prophet.

 

If the international

Jewish financiers,

inside and outside Europe,

succeed in plunging the nations

once more into a world war,

then the result will not be

the Bolshevisation of the earth,

and thus the victory of Jewry,

but the annihilation

of the Jewish race

in Europe!'

 

On the sixth anniversary

of his rise to power,

the Führer provided

a horrifying resolution

to the 'Jewish problem'.

 

In this clip

he made a prophecy

that a world war

would result

in the annihilation

of all European Jews.

Adolf Hitler, la photo trop parfaite

 

LE MONDE

14.04.2014 à 09h34

Par André Loez

 

Il s’agit sans doute de la plus célèbre photographie du début de la guerre. Une foule dense se presse sur l’Odeonsplatz, à Munich, le 2 août 1914, pour célébrer l’entrée en guerre de l’Allemagne contre la Russie, déclarée la veille. Dans un cercle à la droite de l’image, un agrandissement permet de bien distinguer l’une de ces figures enthousiastes : on reconnaît la moustache et la mèche caractéristiques d’Adolf Hitler, sujet autrichien de 25 ans, qui va bientôt s’engager au 16e régiment d’infanterie de réserve bavarois pour ce qu’il décrira ensuite comme l’expérience la plus exaltante de son existence. Le cliché semble ainsi fixer la rencontre parfaite d’un destin individuel, celui du futur Führer, et d’un sentiment collectif, celui de l’unité nationale exaltée, au tout début du conflit.

Trop parfaite, peut-être. Car on doit l’image à Heinrich Hoffmann (1885-1957), nazi convaincu dès 1920, devenu le photographe officiel de Hitler par la suite : il immortalisera par exemple sa poignée de main avec Pétain à Montoire, en octobre 1940. Auteur d’un reportage sur l’entrée en guerre en 1914, il n’aurait d’abord pas remarqué Hitler sur sa photo, avant de la « retrouver » et de la publier opportunément, avec agrandissement, à la veille de l’élection présidentielle de 1932.

Autant d’éléments qui font douter bien des historiens de son authenticité, Gerd Krumeich faisant valoir, par exemple, que la plaque de verre originelle n’a jamais été retrouvée, ou que d’autres versions du cliché montrent un personnage à la coiffure différente. Au-delà de retouches indéniables, la présence d’Hitler à ce rassemblement reste plausible.

Mais comment interpréter l’image d’unanimité se dégageant du document ? Ici, Thomas Weber, le plus récent biographe des années de guerre de Hitler, attire l’attention sur la composition de la scène : alors que d’autres photos, ainsi qu’un film réalisé le même jour, montrent une foule munichoise assez restreinte, de bonnes parties de la place restant vides, le cadrage resserré produit un effet de masse trompeur. Davantage qu’une vue réaliste de la mobilisation, le cliché vise l’efficacité mobilisatrice, en 1914 comme dans les années 1930.
