More on a Bad Translation of Mein Kampf

In 2009, one Michael Ford published a bad translation of Mein Kampf, which I discussed in an earlier post.

What I find astonishing, although it is typical of Internet discussions, is that those who for some reason like his translation accuse me of making up Ford's mistakes.

Well, I suppose it is time to make the evidence available. I've started a page that demonstrates errors in Michael Ford's translation. If anyone is interested, I'll add to the page as time goes on.

Material from Nazi Gauleiter Hans Schemm

I am  adding material by the various Nazi Gauleiter. It's not easy material to find, and I'd welcome more if you happen to have something.  Today, I'm adding excerpts from a 1935 book by Gauleiter Hans Schemm, mostly on racial theory.  The book was published after his death.  Its editor attempted to bring together Schemm's various speeches and writings into a coherent whole.

The Werewolf Movement in April 1945

A visitor to the site sent me an interesting copy of an April 1945 teletype by top Goebbels aide Werner Naumann on the Werewolf Movement — a last-ditch effort by the Nazis to establish underground resistance to Allied occupation. This was directed to the heads of the regional propaganda offices. The attempt had limited success, but the teletype is interesting as one of the last gasps of the propaganda system.
