Joe Graul has a question about Hitler and Christianity, July 1, 2003.



Hitler and Christianity - and Bormann

DID Adolf Hitler sanction the circular which Martin Bormann sent out to the Gauleiters on June 9, 1941 explaining the relationship between Nazism and Christianity? Or did Bormann send it on his own initiative, without Hitler's knowledge or approval?

David Irving, July 2003

David Irving replies:

I WAS about to answer no, as Hitler kept out of religious decisions, but then I think again the answer is probably yes: this was likely the result of a Table Talk which Bormann sat in on, and he wrote a memorandum in consequence and issued it as an ukase from the Führer -- that is the way a lot of Führer orders and decisions originated.
