Political History

Alfred Rosenberg is born (d. October 16, 1946) in Reval (modern-day Tallinn, Estonia, but part of the Russian Empire at this time). Rosenberg becomes an anti-Semite at a young age and an early supporter of the Nazi Party, joining in January 1919 before even Adolf Hitler becomes a member.

Rosenberg will hold several important posts within the Nazi government, but he is best known as one of the Nazis' intellectual leaders and author of Der Mythus des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts (The Myth of the Twentieth Century). Rosenberg's book is the most influential Nazi text after Hitler's Mein Kampf. It is an argument 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.
