Adolf Hitler dictated his political will the day before his suicide, on April 29th,
1945 at 4:00 a.m.. This will clearly summarizes Hitler's idea about what's important for
the future of humanity, and also his orders for the new German cabinet.
Marked are the parts which my textbook found representing Hitler's anti-Semitic
More than thirty years have now passed since 1914, when I made my
modest contribution as a volunteer in the First World War, which was forced
upon the Reich.
In these three decades, love and loyalty to my people have guided
all my thoughts, actions and my life. They gave me the strength to make
the most difficult decisions ever to confront mortal man. In these three
decades I have spent my strength and my health.
It is untrue that I or anyone else in Germany wanted war in 1939. It
was wanted and provoked solely by international statesmen either of Jewish
origin or working for Jewish interests. I have made too many offers for
the limitation and control of armaments, which posterity will not be cowardly
enough always to disregard, for responsibility for the outbreak of this
war to be placed on me. Nor have I ever wished that, after the appalling
First World War, there would be a second against either England or
America. Centuries will go by, but from the ruins of our towns and
monuments the hatred of those ultimately responsible will always grow anew,
against the people whom we have to thank for all this: International Jewry
and its henchmen.
Only three days before the outbreak of the German-Polish war I proposed
a solution of the German-Polish problem to the British Ambassador in Berlin
-- international control as in the case of the Saar. This offer, too, cannot
be lied away. It was only rejected because the ruling clique in England
wanted war, partly for commercial reasons and partly because it was influenced
by the propaganda put out by international Jewry.
I have left no one in doubt that if the people of Europe are once more
treated as mere blocks of shares in the hands of these international money and
finance conspirators, then the sole responsibility for the massacre must be borne
by the true culprits: the Jews. Nor have I left anyone in doubt that this
time millions of European children of Aryan descent will starve to death,
millions of men will die in battle, and hundreds of thousands of women and
children will be burned or bombed to death in our cities without the true
culprits being held to account, albeit more humanely.
After six years of war which, despite all setbacks, will one day go down
in history as the most glorious and heroic manifestation of the struggle
for existence of a nation, I cannot abandon the city which is the capital
of this Reich. Since our forces are too meagre to withstand the enemy's
attack and since our resistance is being debased by creatures who are as
blind as they are lacking in character, I wish to share my fate with that
which millions of others have also taken upon themselves by remaining in
this city. Further, I shall not fall into the hands of the enemy who requires
a new spectacle, presented by the Jews, for the diversion of the hysterical
I have therefore decided to stay in Berlin and there to choose death
voluntarily when I determine that the position of the Führer and the
Chancellery itself can no longer be maintained. I die with a joyful heart in
the knowledge of the immeasurable deeds and achievements of our peasants and
workers and of a contribution unique in the history of our youth which bears my
That I am deeply grateful to them all is as self-evident as is my wish that
they do not abandon the struggle but that, no matter where, they continue
to fight the enemies of the Fatherland, faithful to the ideals of the great
Clausewitz. Through the sacrifices of our soldiers and my own fellowship
with them unto death, a seed has been sown in German history that will one
day grow to usher in the glorious rebirth of the National Socialist movement
in a truly united nation.
Many of our bravest men and women have sworn to bind their lives to mine
to the end. I have begged, and finally ordered, them not to do so but to
play their part in the further struggle of the nation. I ask the leaders
of the Army, the Navy and the Air Force to strengthen the National Socialist
spirit of resistance of our soldiers by all possible means, with special
emphasis on the fact that I myself, as founder and creator of the movement,
prefer death to cowardly resignation or even to capitulation.
May it become a point of honour of future German army officers, as it is
already in our Navy, that the surrender of a district or town is out of
the question, and that, above everything else, the commanders must set a
shining example of faithful devotion to duty unto death.
Before my death, I expel former Reich Marshal Hermann Göring from the
party and withdraw from him all the rights that were conferred upon him by the
decree of 29 June, 1941, and by my Reichstag statement of 1 September, 1939.
In his place I appoint Admiral Dönitz as President of the Reich and Supreme
Commander of the Armed Forces.
Before my death, I expel the former Reichsführer of the SS and the
Minister of the Interior Heinrich Himmler from the party and from all his state
offices. In his place I appoint Gauleiter Karl Hanke as Reichsführer of the SS
and Head of the German Police, and Gauleiter Paul Giesler as Minister of the
Apart altogether from their disloyalty to me, Göring and Himmler have
brought irreparable shame on the whole nation by secretly negotiating with the
enemy without my knowledge and against my will, and also by attempting illegally
to seize control of the State.
In order to provide the German people with a government of honourable men
who will fulfil the task of continuing the war with all the means at their
disposal, I, as Führer of the nation, appoint the following members of the
Although a number of these men, including Martin Bormann, Dr. Göbbels
and others together with their wives have joined me of their own free
will, not wishing to leave the capital under any circumstances and prepared
to die with me, I implore them to grant my request that they place the
welfare of the nation above their own feelings. By their work and loyal
companionship they will remain as close to me after my death as I hope
my spirit will continue to dwell among them and accompany them always.
Let them be severe but never unjust, and let them never, above all, allow
fear to preside over their actions, placing the honour of the nation above
everything that exists on earth. May they, finally, always remember that
our task, the consolidation of a National Socialist state, represents
the work of centuries to come, so that every individual must subordinate
his own interest to the common good. I ask of all Germans, of all National
Socialists, men and women and all soldiers of the Wehrmacht, that they
remain faithful and obedient unto death to the new government and its
Above all, I enjoin the government and the people to uphold the race
laws to the limit, and to resist mercilessly the poisoner of all nations,
Given in Berlin, this 29th of April 1945, 4.00 a.m.
