"L'entretien fut laborieux, car il est impossible d'avoir une conversation avecAdolfHitler. Il ne s'arrête jamais de parler, comme s'il s'adressait à une grande assemblée. Dans chaque question, il cherche un thème qui le mettra hors de lui, puis son regard se fige dans un coin éloigné de la pièce. Une touche d'hystérie s'insinue dans sa voix, qui s'élève parfois jusqu'en un cri. Il donne l'impression d'être en transe. Il tape du poing sur la table. En 1932, Dorothy Thompson, vedette américaine des correspondants étrangers, consacre un portrait ravageur à Adolf Hitler, peu avant son élection le 30 janvier 1933. Cet article, jugé offensant par les nazis, lui vaut d'être expulsée d'Allemagne l'année suivante. Elle qualifie en effet le Führer d'" archétype même du petit homme ", dont les yeux " brillent de l'éclat particulier qui distingue souvent les génies, les alcooliques et les hystériques ". Si Dorothy Thompson n'a pas " vu " qu'Hitler allait accéder au pouvoir, elle brosse cependant un incroyable portrait du futur dictateur. Elle décrypte avec brio les raisons de son emprise sur les foules, explique finement ses tactiques oratoires. Une captivante analyse du populisme qui rend cette lecture indispensable dans notre monde menacé par les crises internationales et la folie de certains de ses dirigeants."

Adolf Hitler wrote this book when he was in prison for his political activities. During that time, Germany had been weakened by the Treaty of Versailles, and France had seized several parts of Germany. France was also encouraging separatist movements in the Rhineland and in Bavaria.After the First World War, the social and economic conditions in Germany were also deteriorating. In this scenario, many Germans were beginning to feel angry and resentful of the way their country had been treated by the Treaty of Versailles. Unrest was beginning to build up, and many political movements were springing up with dreams of reclaiming Germany's lost power and status.Hitler was part of the political movement that stood for the unity of the German nation and opposed the separatist movements. Hitler and his associates were arrested when they went on a march of protest He was imprisoned in the Fort of Landsberg. This was the time when Hitler started writing Mein Kampf (My Struggle), which, more than an autobiography, was a declaration of his visions and plans for reclaiming the glory of the German nation.It contains stories from his childhood, the events and situations that influenced his ideologies, and his prejudices. It explains his visions for German expansion through Europe, the Unification of Germany and Austria, and his assertion of the superiority of the 'Aryan' Race. The book contains the seeds of the Nazi vision for the mass extermination of the Jewish people.Mein Kampf is the story of his life and a political manifesto that contains the beginnings of the ideas that resulted in all the atrocities committed by the Nazi party.The book is considered historically important for various reasons. One of them is to analyze and understand how a single man was able to convince a whole nation to follow his ideas, good or bad. A study of the factors that made people follow him on a path that led to a Second World War._____________________________________About Adolf HitlerAdolf Hitler was the Austrian born leader of the Nazi Party in Germany.
