1089 words - 4 pages

What had to be reckoned heavily against the Jews in my eyes was when I became acquainted with their activity in the press, art, literature, and the theatre. All the unctuous reassurances helped little or nothing. It sufficed to look at a billboard, to study the names of the men behind the horrible trash they advertised, to make you hard for a long time to come. This was pestilence, spiritual pestilence, worse than the Black Death of olden times, and the people was being infected with it! It goes without saying that that the lower the intellectual level of one of these art manufacturers, the more unlimited his fertility will be, and the scoundrel ends up as a garbage separator, splashing his filth in the face of humanity. And bear in mind that there is no limit to their number: bear in mind that for one Goethe Nature easily can foist on the world ten thousand of these scribblers who poison men's souls like germ-carriers of the worst sort, on their fellow men. It was terrible, but not to be overlooked, that precisely the Jew, in tremendous numbers, seemed chosen by Nature for this shameful calling. Is this why the Jews are called the 'chosen people''? I now began to examine carefully the names of all the creators of unclean products in public artistic life. The result was less and less favorable for my previous attitude towards the Jews. Regardless how my sentiment might resist, my reason was forced to draw its conclusions. The fact that nine-tenths of all literary filth, artistic trash, and theatrical idiocy can be set to the account of a people, constituting hardly one-hundredth of all the country's inhabitants, could simply not be talked away: it was the plain truth. And I now began to examine my beloved 'world press' from this point of view. And the deeper I probed the more the object of my former admiration shriveled. The style became more and more unbearable: I could not help rejecting the content as inwardly shallow and banal: the objectivity of exposition now seemed to be more akin to lies than honest truth: and writers were - Jews.This extract is taken from Mein Kampf, the infamous book written by Adolf Hitler during his imprisonment in 1924 for his part in the failure of the Munich Putsch.The extract demonstrates one of Hitler's main reasons for writing Mein Kampf; describing his hatred towards the Jews and his various reasons for this. The language used by Hitler is very strong at times and many of his arguments and comments are looked upon in disgust today by both Jews and non-Jews; for example in Sweden where the book is banned.Hitler describes Jews as "trash" (line 3), "filth" (line 7), "germ-carriers" (line 8) and "unclean products" (line 11). Therefore Hitler obviously regarded the Jewish race as dirty and this view is very relevant if compared to Hitler's policies whilst Fuhrer of Germany when he repeatedly spoke of the Aryan race as the master race. To him, the Jews were the complete opposite of this master race and as he says on...
