On the 128th anniversary of his birth, today we offer some seldom-seen statements made regarding Adolf Hitler, the first great leader of National Socialism.

“I SHOULD LIKE to put it on record that I have never been able to dislike Adolf Hitler… The fact is that there is something deeply appealing about him… the face of a man suffering under intolerable wrongs… He is the martyr, the victim, Prometheus chained to the rock, the self-sacrificing hero who fights single-handed against impossible odds… One feels, as with Napoleon, that he is fighting against destiny, that he can’t win, and yet that he somehow deserves to.” – George Orwell, British writer

“Hitler is the man of my life. The German dictator had been an ideal leader who dedicated his life to the realization of his noble ambition. He never lived for himself but for Germany and the German people. I have always wished to live like him.” – Dr. Noureddine Tarraf, Egyptian Minister of Health in the 1950s

“A man of peace… one of the most sincere, honest and open men I have ever spoken to.” – Victor Ridder, American publisher

“Words are too poor to express what we owe this man, who is a symbol of the best of what the world has produced. We can only celebrate him as the God-sent rescuer of Europe.” – Per Engdahl, Swedish author

“I’m not worthy to speak up for Adolf Hitler, and his life and deeds do not invite sentimental rousing. Hitler was a warrior, a warrior for humankind and a preacher of the gospel of justice for all nations. He was a reforming character of the highest order, and his historical fate was that he functioned in a time of unequalled brutality, which in the end felled him. Thus may the ordinary Western European look at Adolf Hitler. And we, his close followers, bow our heads at his death….” – Knut Hamsun, leading Norwegian author, written (at great risk) upon the death of Hitler in 1945

“My dear Hitler… I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart. Even if you appear to have been defeated, in reality you are the victor.” – Muhammad Anwar El Sadat, third President of Egypt

“A man who within the space of four years has raised his people from the very lowest depths to self-consciousness, pride, discipline, and power deserves the gratitude of his fellow citizens and the admiration of mankind.” – Sven Hedin, Swedish explorer and author

‘I have never seen a happier people than the Germans. Hitler is one of the greatest men I have ever met…. Yes, Heil Hitler. I, too, say that — because he is truly a great man.” – Lloyd George, former British Prime Minister

“Hitler is always present before my eyes: as a man of peace in 1936, as a man of war in 1944. It is not possible to have been a personal witness to the life of such an extraordinary man without being marked by it forever. Not a day goes by but Hitler rises again in my memory, not as a man long dead, but as a real being who paces his office floor, seats himself in his chair, pokes the burning logs in the fireplace…. After 1945 Hitler was accused of every cruelty, but it was not in his nature to be cruel. He loved children. It was an entirely natural thing for him to stop his car and share his food with young cyclists along the road. Once he gave his raincoat to a derelict plodding in the rain. At midnight he would interrupt his work and prepare the food for his dog Blondi. He could not eat meat, because it meant the death of a living creature….” – Léon Degrelle, Belgian leader

“My sizing up of the man [Hitler] as I sat and talked with him was that he is really one who truly loves his fellow man, and his country, and would make any sacrifice for their good. He is a man of deep sincerity and a genuine patriot. As I talked with him, I could not but think of Joan of Arc. The world will yet come to see a very great man. He is distinctly a mystic…” – Mackenzie King, Prime Minister of Canada

“I think that he [Adolf Hitler] is primarily a dreamer, a visionary. His mind, nurtured by the other-worldness of the Alpine scenery round his mountain retreat of Berchtesgaden, runs to visions; and I have heard his intimates say that, even in cabinet meetings when vital questions of policy are being discussed, he is dreaming — thinking of the light that never was on sea or land, the consecration and the poet’s dream. …He is so transparently honest when he is weaving visions of his own creation that nobody can doubt him. He is ready, like a medieval saint, to go through fire and water for his beliefs… He sees himself as a crusader; he thinks the whole time of saving mankind. That is why he reaches such a stage of mystical exaltation when he talks about saving the world from Bolshevism. It is the old Siegfried complex once again. Just as the young German knight of old went out into the dim, dark forests to kill dragons, so he goes out to exterminate Bolshevism.” – Sir Stephen Henry Roberts, Australian author and academic

“Hitler is a very great man, like an inspired religious leader, and as such rather fanatical, but not scheming, not selfish, not greedy for power, but a mystic, a visionary who really wants the best for his country.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh, American author

“He once said: ‘I wish nothing on my gravestone other than my name.’ Even his name will probably not stand over his grave, for we know that he must have perished while fighting bitterly in the Reich Chancellery. We know that the enemy will be able to find a body in the ruins caused by countless artillery shells and flame throwers, and that they may say that it is the Führer’s body, but we will not believe it. If the enemy says that, we will not believe it. That his body is dead we believe, what is mortal of him has perished, has passed away, but he has fulfilled his most beautiful oath, this affirmation: ‘The most valuable thing God has given me on this world is my people. My faith rests on it, I serve it with my will, and I give my life to it.’ His life is fulfilled. He began by fighting for his people, and he ended that way. A life of battle.” – Hermann Okraß, German writer, published at great personal risk in the Hamburger Zeitung of May 2, 1945

“We painted Hitler as a monster, a devil. And that’s why we could not move away from that portrayal after the war. We had mobilized the masses against the devil incarnate. And so we were forced to continue in this satanic scenario after the war. We could not possibly have explained to our people that the war had actually been only a preventative economic measure.” – James Addison Baker, US Secretary of State

“Hitler is endless proof of God’s love and blessing for which we ever must be grateful.” – Gertrud Scholtz-Klink, leader of the National Socialist Women’s League

“[T]he greatest man in history, whose name was Adolf Hitler. …He was the greatest White man who ever lived and the greatest leader that the White race ever had. He has influenced not only our lives, but the whole world.” – Ben Klassen, American religious leader

“He [Adolf Hitler] has a supreme intellect. I have known only two other men to whom I could apply such distinction — Lord Northcliffe and Lloyd George. If one puts a question to Hitler, he gives an immediate, brilliant, clear answer. There is no human being living whose promise on important matters I would trust more readily. He believes that Germany has a Divine calling and that the German people are destined to save Europe from the revolutionary attacks of Communism. He values family life very highly, whereas Communism is its worst enemy. He has thoroughly cleansed the moral, ethical life of Germany. …No words can describe his politeness; he disarms men as well as women and can win both at any time with his conciliatory, pleasant smile. He is a man of rare culture. His knowledge of music, the arts, and architecture is profound.” – Harold Sidney Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Rothermere, British newspaper editor and writer

Faust, the Ninth Symphony, and the will of Adolf Hitler are eternally young and know neither time nor transience.” – Baldur von Schirach, National Socialist leader

“There is no question but that Hitler belongs in the category of the truly mystic medicine man. As somebody commented about him at the last Nürnberg party congress, since the time of Mohammed nothing like it has been seen in the world. …The outstanding characteristic of his physiognomy is its dreamy look. I was especially struck by that when I saw pictures taken of him in the Czechoslovakian crisis; there was in his eyes the look of a seer. …Hitler is a medicine man, a spiritual vessel, a demi-deity or, even better, a myth.” – Carl Jung, Swiss psychologist and philosopher

“What will count in the long run in determining Adolf Hitler’s stature is not whether he lost or won the war but whether it was he or his adversaries who were on the side of the Life Force, whether it was he or they who served the cause of Truth and human progress. We only have to look around us today to know it was not they.” – Dr. William L. Pierce, founder of the National Alliance and National Vanguard
