Long before entering politics, the leader of Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler, spoke of his desire to free the “Germanic race from Jewish parasites.” Hans Mend, who served with the Fuhrer during the First World War, wrote about this in his memoirs, which will be published for the first time in English in February. Quotes from a book called “I served with Hitler in the trenches” leads Daily Mail.

Mend and Hitler served as couriers in the 16th Bavarian Reserve Infantry Regiment, also known as the List Regiment, and participated in major engagements, including the Battle of Ypres in 1914 and the Battle of the Somme in 1916.

Daily mail writes that Mend’s memoirs are full of references to Hitler’s hateful obsession with Jews. In particular, the author spoke about the dispute between the future Nazi leader and a colleague that took place on Christmas Day in 1914. “It seems to me that many Jews are better than one Christian,” said Hitler’s colleague. “There are many Jews in our party who care about their workers’ interests better than Christians.”

To this, the future Fuhrer replied that if he was in power, he would “liberate the Germanic race from Jewish parasites and send these racial polluters and exploiters of people to Palestine.” Mend, however, agreed with Hitler’s statement.

He also recalled that there were very few hardy and healthy people in the regiment like Hitler. “With incredible resilience, he endured the heaviest loads and never allowed weakness to manifest,” the book says.

In addition, Mend described how one day an English plane crashed in front of their eyes and both pilots presented a “terrible sight” that he will never forget. However, the only one who was not interested in what happened was Hitler.

At the end of December, the historian James Holland toldthat the decision to halt the advance of the German army near the French Dunkirk at the beginning of World War II was the fatal mistake of the Fuhrer of the Third Reich. According to him, the Wehrmacht forces in May 1940 could encircle the allied forces in France, effectively ending the war. However, on May 24, Hitler ordered the commanders of his tank divisions, which were advancing towards Dunkirk, to stop the advance.
