In the April Danzig elections, he supported “constitutionalist” candidates against the Nazis and wrote articles supporting co-operation with the Poles, which angered the Nazis. Rauschning found himself in personal danger. He sold his farming interests and fled to Poland in Between andhe wrote a number of works in German on the problem of the Nazis that were translated to a number of languages, including English.
However, as anti-Nazi propaganda it was taken seriously by the Nazi regime. At the beginning of the war, the French dropped leaflets on the Western Front containing excerpts from Rauschnings writings but with little response. InRauschning moved to the United States, becoming an American citizen in and purchasing a farm near Portland, Oregonwhere he died in He remained politically active after the war and opposed the policies of Konrad Adenauer.
Rauschning’s writings that were translated into English deal with Nazism, the conservative revolutionaries’ relation to it, and their role and responsibility for Hitler gaining power. By conservative revolution, Rauschning meant “the prewar monarchic-Christian revolt against modernity that made a devil’s pact with Hitler during the Spea,s period.
In Die Revolution des Nihilismus The Revolution of Nihilismhe wrote that “the National Socialism that came to power spesks was no longer a nationalist but a revolutionary movement”  and as the books title states a nihilistic revolution that destroyed all values and traditions. He believed that the only alternative to Nazism was the restoration of the monarchy. Rauschning’s ideas of conservative Christian resistance to Hitler met with increasing scepticism and were of no interest to Winston Churchill and his doctrine of uncompromising total war.
Atkins, is a Holocaust denial institution that is based in Germany. In an effort to undercut the accuracy of Rauschning’s herman account of Hitler’s anti-Semitic diatribes to “remove millions of an inferior race that breeds like vermin,” Weber wrote:.
The Holocaust hoax is a religion. Its underpinnings in the realm of historical rauschnng are nonexistent—no Hitler order, no plan, no budget, no gas chambers, no autopsies of gassed victims, no bones, no ashes, no skulls, no nothing.
Considered one of the first former Nazi insiders to criticize Hitler’s plan for world domination and the expulsion of Jews, many of Rauschning’s most skeptical adversaries have been led by “revisionist historians gathered around David Irving ,”  who by was regarded as a proponent of Holocaust denial.
In an unsuccessful libel case, Irving was discredited after he had falsified historical facts in an effort to advance his theory that the Holocaust never happened,  hermanh Judge Charles Gray concluded that Irving was “an active Holocaust denier; that he is anti-Semitic and racist and that he associates with right wing extremists who promote neo-Nazism.
Although Rauschning had written his book more than six years after his conversations with Hitler, German historian Theodor Schieder remarked:. It is a [work] in which objective and subjective components are mixed and in which alterations in the author’s opinions about what he recounts become mingled with what he recounts. It is, however, a [source] of unquestioned value, since it contains views derived from immediate experience.
In his biography of Hitler, Ian Kershaw wrote: Nazi Conceptions of Christianityalso contends Hitler Speaks to be an overall fake. According to Theodor Schieder, “Rauschning had at least thirteen encounters with Hitler, some of them in private. Wolfgang Haenel argued that Rauschning’s book is worthless “except as a document of Allied war propaganda” even though much of the book was written inbefore World War II started.
Although Margaret Sanger cautioned readers that Rauschning’s many books were likely “written as anti-Nazi propaganda,” she explained that he probably did so to strip away Hitler’s intentions “to deceive the public” to make the Nazis appear more moderate, and in doing so, Rauschning’s book revealed the “brutal Nietzschean essence of Nazism in a vivid language.
There were a number of accurate predictions in Rauschning’s book, especially Hitler’s answer to a possible alliance of Britain, France and Russia against Germany: But even if we could not conquer them, we should drag half the world into destruction with us, and leave no one spsaks triumph over Germany.
There will not be another We shall not surrender. There has been some debate over the importance of Rauschning hitleer Hitler and the party. One of the reasons cited for Hitler’s interest in Rauschning was his citizenship and political leadership in the Free City of Danzig.
Since Danzig retained an independent status under the League of NationsHitler apparently felt that the free port “might well offer spekas useful asylum. Another historian has argued that most “Rauschning excerpts cited in this chapter are reckoned authentic hremann they closely correspond to sentiments related in such accredited sources as Hitler’s Table Talks, Wagener’s Memoirs, and Richard Breiting’s interviews.
The author of Hitler: A Study in TryannyAlan Bullock, remarked that Rauschning’s recording of his conversations with Hitler “has been vindicated by the evidence of Hitler’s views which has been discovered since its publication and that it is an important source for any biography of Hitler.
In the interview, Reves contended that penniless Rauschning’s main reason for agreeing to write Hitler Speaks was thefrancs in advance, and, referring to preliminary talks with Rauschning in in which he had agreed with the author on what themes and personality traits to apply to Hitler, considered it to be largely fabricated.
For example, in the introductory essay  he wrote for Hitler’s Table Talk in he had said:. It is now, I think, accepted. If any still doubt its genuineness, they will hardly do so after reading the volume now published. For here is the official, authentic record of Hitler’s Table-Talk almost exactly ten years after the conversations recorded by Rauschning.
In the third edition, published inhe wrote a new preface in which he revised but did not reverse his opinion of the authenticity of Hitler Speaks:. Rauschning may have yielded at times to journalistic temptations, but he had opportunities to record Hitler’s conversations and the general tenor of his record too exactly foretells Hitler’s later utterances to be dismissed as fabrication. However, the similarities, which are mostly slight, could be for a number of reasons From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
