How Hitler used a lie about November 9 as the foundation for the Third Reich

Press/Media: Articles in 'The Conversation'

Description

As Adolf Hitler worked on his secret first autobiography in the summer of 1923, he faced a problem. He had decided that in Adolf Hitler: His Life and His Speeches, to be published as a biography attributed to the young right-wing writer Adolf-Victor von Koerber, he would present himself as a boy from Austria whose formative experiences had led him to political revelations about the hidden architecture of the world.

His pitch would be that these revelations would allow him to become Germany’s saviour at the very moment of the country’s most dire need.
