We are not disagreeing much. I am not disputing Hitler's clarity and I am not disputing his redundancy. I am disputing his sincerity. Although, I do believe him when he said he liked to use the Big Lie. lol.I disagree. Hitler, in his various writings and speeches, made it completely clear that he wanted colonies for the German people (“living space”), all of these were taken so he looked east. Firstly he ensured the German speaking parts of Europe were united, then he, as he explained he would do, looked further east.
He was also very clear on who he wanted to remove from this new living space; the slavs living there and any Jews he came across (not sure if he publicly stated this explicitly but it has been shown in his private talks and by other prominent Nazis IIRC).
I am not an expert in ethnicity, but wouldn't the Pale of Settlement be located within counties populated by Slavic peoples? He can't get to the former without running through the latter. And the Pale of Settlement is which way from Berlin? To the east?
I believe I first stumbled across the idea in Fritz Thyssen's, I Paid Hitler. It's a typical self-serving memoir. He was an industrialist and banker on the board of the Reichsbank. His book talks about the pre 1933 scramble in which various corporations and financiers are deciding on whether to contribute to Hitler's Party or someone else or both, etc. He seems to get all excited and gushy of the idea of this Bank of International Settlements, saying to the person who informed him of the proposal - good, now the winners and losers will have to cooperate. That's a recurring theme in my posts. There is a lot of cooperation for governments supposedly locked in an ideological death match. It's up to you if you want to believe the stuff they fed the public, Lebensraum and so forth. I have other ideas that involve following the money trail, not the political rhetoric. War is a racket.Interesting, I wasn’t aware of this. Thanks for posting
