Hitler Says He Doesn't Agree With Anti-Christian Writing of Alfred Rosenberg

Bishop Hermann Wilhelm Berning of Osnabrück

Adolf Hitler tells Bishop Hermann Wilhelm Berning and Monsignor Paul Steinmann, Vicar General of Berlin, that he doesn't personally agree with the anti-Christian, pagan writings of Alfred Rosenberg.

Rosenberg's book Mythus des 20. Jahrhunderts (Myth of the 20th Century) is the most influential Nazi text after Hitler's Mein Kampf. Rosenberg argues for a racial theory of culture, according to which the Aryan race has produced nothing but good while the Jewish race has produced nothing good at all.

Adolf Hitler apparently never read this book and even denies that it expresses any sort of official Nazi ideology:

"I must insist that Rosenberg's "The Myth of the Twentieth Century" is not to be regarded as an expression of the official doctrine of the party.

The moment the book appeared, I deliberately refrained from recognizing it as any such thing. In the first place, its title gives a completely false impression ... a National Socialist should affirm that to the myth of the nineteenth century he opposes the faith and science of our times ...

I have myself merely glanced cursorily at it."

Alfred Rosenberg's Myth of the 20th Century will be placed on the Catholic Church's Index Librorum Prohibitorum (Index of Prohibited Books) in 1934.
