40 THS ICTHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, April 11, 1973 Adolf Hitler may not have it so after all, author claims By DAVID BINDER New 'Voik Times Sen ice BONN Just 40 years after he came to power and 28 years after his downfall many Ger- mans are gettinc a frpsh look at their onetime Fueluer, Adolf Hitler It is a look full of surprising disclosures about the man who created the Third Re'ch and led the German nation to destruc- tion and shame in the Second World War. The latest issue of the week- ly mapaz'ne Der Spiegel, pub- lished in Hamburg, has a cover article on Hitler based on new discoveries by a Munich histor- ian, Dr. Werner Maser. Maser. who 50 old, has made the study of Hitler the major work of his life In 1971 he published a biography of the dictator that has been considered outstanding. As a result, scores of read- ers have sent him extraordinary documents that cast new light on Hitler's early life. On the basis of the docu- mer-ts postcards and sketches Maser concluded that earlier portayals of the young Hitler including Hit- ler's own as a home'ess, staning tramp in Vienna after the turn of the century were "incorrect." He disclosed that Hitler not only had influential friends who he'ped him get apprenticeships in the Austrian capital but also had access to adenuate finan- cial sources for roost of his stay there from 1906 to 1913. For a time, it appears, Hitler also received 25 Crowns a month as an orphan and he also in- herited a not insubstantial sum from his family. In anv case, his was not the "hard fate" Hitler later des- cribed in hJs autobiography "Mein Maser con- cludes. The scholar, who teaches at the Munich College of Politics, ?lso disclosed that for more than a year Austrian draft au- tho'-it'es had chased Hitler, who fled from, one dwelling to an- other, finally escaping to Mun- ich, where he was caught in 1914. Maser's new work on Hitler, drawing on the latest docu- ments, is to be issued this week by the Econ Publishing House in Dusseldorf. Another insight into the Nazi leader's life and times is pro- vided by a new book "Have You Seen comoiled by the young writer Walter Kemoowski. It consists cf 230 recollections of Hitler by Ger- mans who saw the Fuehrer at one time or another. The book contains passages like the following from a re- tired colonel, now 78 years old: "He had such large deep b'ue eyes such eyes as Frederick the Great must have had. He stared penetratingly at people and then they were hypnotized like a frog by a snake, to use this comparison. He had the power of conviction." A 68-year-old writer said: "I saw him in Munich. He was leaning on the Wittelsbach Fountain talking to 30 or 25 stu- dents and looked incredibly pro- vincial, and my father said, "that guy isn't interesting at all. That was 1927." A 44-year-old Cellist recount- ed: "I am from Danzig and in 1939 he came to Danzig and carried us back into the Reich. Standing among the masses, he whistled past, looking as If he was made of iron. One thought he was God himitJf. As a child, you know." Since the beginning of the year, the Viennese actor Hel- mut Qualtinper has been giv- ing readings from "Mein Kampf" in numerous German cities. His aim is to lay bare Hitler's primitive concepts and lies through Hitler's own lang- uage.
