Ruairí Ó Bléine asks about Hitler's knowledge of languages


Did Hitler speak foreign languages?

I UNDERSTAND that you are the leading authority on Adolf Hitler. He frequently conversed with ambassadors and politicians who spoke English, French etc. It is nor clear from his interpreter's book, if he knew anything of other languages.

Paul Schmidt [Statist auf Diplomatischer Bühne] maintained that he would sometimes twist meanings in interpreting. Would Hitler not have spotted this?

It would be most interesting to know if there is any recording of Hitler speaking any language other than German.

David Irving replies:

There are no recordings of Hitler speaking other languages but as I say in Hitlers War he did have a working knowledge of English and read English society magazines.
