WWII British Report: Hitler Developed 'Jewish Phobia'

Unknown secret wartime report from 1942 reveals Hitler's unstable mental state as tide was turning in allies' favor. Analysis suggests Hitler's growing fear of defeat, belief he was leading crusade against Jewish people

A secret report, previously unknown to historians, has given readers insight regarding the mental state of Adolf Hitler. According to the report, which was published in the British Guardian Newspaper on Friday, in 1942, British intelligence officers were tracking Adolf Hitler's "messiah complex" and his belief that he was leading a crusade against Jewish people.

The analysis of Hitler's mental state, was uncovered by a Cambridge University researcher, Scott Anthony. He found a report commissioned by the social scientist Mark Abrams, who worked in the psychological warfare division of the allied expeditionary force during the Second World War.

The report was written by an academic called Joseph McCurdy who studied radio speeches Hitler gave in 1942. His analysis was written as the war was starting to move in the allies' favor, and shows that British officers had started noticing signs of developing paranoia in Hitler's speechmaking and a growing preoccupation with what he called "the Jewish poison."

Anthony said: "At the time that it was written, the tide was starting to turn against Germany. In response, Hitler began to focus his attentions to the German home front. This document shows that British intelligence sensed this happening."

The report's author recognized that faced with external failure, the Nazi leader was focusing on a perceived "enemy within" instead – namely the Jews.

According to the report's opening lines which were published in Guardian Newspaper, the aim was "to reconstruct, if possible, what was in Hitler's mind." McCurdy concluded that Hitler had a tendency to lose heart when things were not going his way.

When analyzing one of Hitler's speeches, McCurdy pointed out that the speech betrayed "a man who is seriously contemplating the possibility of utter defeat."

However, according to the report, Hitler's growing paranoia was most alarming. McCurdy suggested Hitler had a "messiah complex," believing he was leading a chosen people on a crusade against an evil incarnate in the Jews. The paper notes an extension of the "Jew phobia" and says that Hitler now saw them not just as a threat to Germany, but as a "universal diabolical agency."

I think Hitlers Jewish issues started in his hometown borne of resentment and excacerbated by Bolshies and Menshies

With profound results he struck a chord with fellow travelers

The horrors surpassed only by Croation Catholic Ustashi

Hitler didn’t much cotton to religion preferring his own Teutonic mythologies

The zeal of Christian Croats pursuing his own aims with even more zeal must have pleased him but it worried his subordinates as defeat became more imminent and the fear of war crime tribunals

The ability for us to be brutal to one another will always be one upped

“studied radio speeches Hitler gave in 1942”

Hitler was talking of eradicating the Jews from Europe in 1938, in a speech as I recall.

This was no “new obsession” that suddenly developed in 1942.

By late 1943 Hitler was starting to blame the German people for not doing enough to win the war. They were becoming “unworthy” in his mind.

That is a Mussolini pose.
Both were losers. But Mussolini didnt hate Jews that much. The Nazis were pissed that he wasnt shipping Jews to camps.

“secret” report....published in a newspaper. How stupid can you get? Given that it was published in 1942, you could assume its just the usual wartime propaganda.

What is so strange about that? People still won’t believe what is laid out in the koran, even after 1400 years of experience with the islamic filth...

It is not without reason that Churchill called Mein Kampf the koran of the 20th century.

Good point. Willfully ignorant. Its like a kid being warned over and over not to stick a pencil in a light socket...and they’re surprised when they’re shocked.

. . .There! A name to explain, what Hitler's problem was. We all have 'fears'; no?

No doubt, a good many Lefty heads - including all those belonging to Obama voters - will be 'bobbing "yes" to this insightful declaration.

As some have said, if Germany hadn’t of tried to destroy its Jewish citizens....it may have conquered and ruled the world.
