“Bolshevism from Moses to Lenin: A Dialogue between Adolf Hitler and Me,” By Dietrich Eckhart (1925)
Der Bolschewismus von Moses bis Lenin: Zwiegespräch zwischen Hitler und mir (“Bolshevism from Moses to Lenin: Dialogues Between Hitler and Me”) was first published in 1925 after it was found among the paper of Dietrich Eckhart.
Much debate exists if Hitler actually spoke the words in it, or if the essay was written by Eckart alone.
Either way, it represents an accurate insight into Dietrich’s worldview, significant because he was one of the original founders of the of one of the founders of the Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (German Workers’ Party— DAP), which in February 1920 changed its name to the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers Party—NSDAP).
This work provides a penetrating look at the role of the Jews in world history, from Biblical times to the 20th century, by the poet and playwright to whom Hitler dedicated Mein Kampf.
It is a lucid exposition of Jewish psychology, motives, and methods of operating. It also provides new, valuable insight into the meaning of the Old Testament.
Johann Dietrich Eckart (23 March 1868 – 26 December 1923) was a German journalist and politician and, with Adolf Hitler, was one of the early key members of the (NSDAP). On 9 November 1923, Eckart participated in the failed Putsch. He was arrested and placed in Landsberg Prison along with Hitler and other party officials, but was released shortly thereafter due to illness. He died of a heart attack in Berchtesgaden on 26 December 1923.
Review from Amazon.com:
Dietrich Eckhart was an early founder of the NSDAP and a friend of Adolph Hitler. This book purports to be the transcript of a conversation between Hitler and Eckhart. In it, they discuss Jewish strategies against gentile countries and argue that they use “Bolshevism.” In this case, Bolshevism means and alliance of low-class gentiles with Jews to rip off a society. They argue that the strategy starts during Biblical times with Joseph (of the many colored coat) in Egypt and then repeats itself through time and place in history-Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, Re-conquest era Spain and modern times.
For many Christians, the Old Testament appears to be a group of faithful saints struggling against a hostile world in their quest to better understand God, but this book shines a light on the Old Testament from a different angle. The shadows which are cast from that light do indeed portray the Old Testament Jews as a group of scheming power-brokers not much different than the Greenspans and Wolfowitzes of today.
This is a very quick read, and there are numerous footnotes from the translator, William L. Pierce, that shed further light on the matter.
