JeffKledis writes from Colorado Springs, August 13, 1998:

I RECENTLY read a 1983 Journal of Historical Review article by Mark Weber. This article was titled "President Roosevelt's Campaign To Incite War in Europe: The Secret Polish Documents."

This article discussed documents seized by the Nazis in the Polish State Department when they invaded Poland. The documents were written by Polish ambassador Potocki and implicated Roosevelt in a stealth agenda to incite WW.II. I was very ashamed of Pres. Roosevelt if these documents are true. They implicated him in high treason.


  • Are these documents mentioned in your great book HITLER'S WAR?
  • Do historians still believe these documents to be real?
  • In one of the documents, the Polish ambassador described the American media this way: "Propaganda is mostly in the hands of the Jews who control almost 100 percent radio, film, daily and periodical press." Was the US media really controlled so much by Jews? Was this a common belief among the politicians at the time?

 David Irving notes:

 Yes, I refer to them in both Hitler's War and the "prequel," The War Path. The Nazis found the Potocki reports in the Polish foreign ministry in Warsaw in 1939. In a letter to American Jewish leaders (Felix Frankfurter) he referred to the embarrassing passage quoted as a Nazi forgery; but carbon copies of the originals will be found in the Potocki papers housed in the Manuscript Division of the Hoover Library, Stanford, California; they are identical to those published by the Nazis.
