On September 30:

     Back  on  September 1, 1939, I addressed a session
     of the Reichstag about two things: [...] secondly,
     if  Jewry  managed  to instigate an  international
     world  war,  intended  to  exterminate  the  Aryan
     peodles, it will not be the Aryan peoples who will
     be exterminated, but rather Jewry.
On November 8:

     You  will  recall the session of the Reichstag  at
     which I declared: "If Jewry were to fancy that  an
     international  world  war  would  result  in   the
     extermination  of  the European  races,  then  the
     result  will  not  be  the  extermination  of  the
     European  races but the extermination  of  all  of
     Jewry  all  through  Europe. I  have  always  been
     ridiculed  as a prophet. But of those who  laughed
     then,  innumerable  ones  are  not  laughing   any
     longer, and those who are still laughing will also
     shortly stop. Before long this realization  should
     come  to  dawn  on Europe and on the whole  world.
     International  Jewry will then be  recognized  for
     the   demonic  danger  that  it  is.  We  National
     Socialists [Nazis] shall see to it.
The  monotonous  obstinacy  [of  this  "prophesy"]  is  truly
surprising.  It seems as if Hitler wanted to  make  his  work
manifest  before  history.  Perhaps  he  wished  to  let  his
assistants-in-murder know that he, with  his  authority,  was
standing   squarely  behind  them.  Not  even  the  recurring
alteration of the date to September 1, 1939, the first day of
the  war,  when  he actually made no mention  of  the  Jewish
question, was probably no error but rather quite intentional.
These  words  of Hitler's appear to be nothing other  than  a
major and conscious confession.

In  the  face of the drama's end, the war lost but the murder
of  the  Jews accomplished, Hitler became even more explicit.
Texts  of  his last discourses have been disputed;  evidently
some  other  hand  had messed with them.  But  the  following
utterance  from  February  13,  1945  is  unadulterated   and
unadulterable Hitler:

     Against the Jews I fought open-eyed and in view of
     the  whole  world. At the beginning of the  war  I
     sent them a final warning. I did not leave them in
     ignorance  that, should they once again manage  to
     drag the world into war, they would this time  not
     be   spared-I  made  it  plain  that  they,   this
     parasitic  vermin  in  Europe,  will  be   finally
And again Hitler on April 2, 1945, fully aware of defeat:

     The German people, now so violently kicked around,
     must  in  spite  of their national  powerlessness,
     always  endeavor to cherish our gift to them:  the
     science  of  race hygiene. In a world increasingly
     contaminated  by the Jews' moral  poison,  only  a
     people  immunized against this poison will in  the
     end  gain  the  upper  hand. In  that  light,  the
     National  Socialist movement will have earned  the
     world's  undying gratitude, seeing that I had  the
     Jews of Central Europe exterminated.
Four  weeks  later, on April 29, the day before his  suicide,
Hitler  once  more  acknowledged his work,  in  a  personally
signed last will and testament:

     I have left no one in doubt that, when the peoples
     of Europe are once again nothing more than parcels
     of  stock  certificates  in  the  hands  of  these
     international money and finance conspirators, then
     this  people will also be called to account,  this
     people  which is the actual guilty party  in  this
     murderous struggle: Jewry! Besides, I have left no
     one  in  ignorance about the fact that this  time,
     though  millions  of children  of  Europe's  Aryan
     peoples will die of hunger, and millions of  adult
     men  will  suffer death, and hundreds of thousands
     of women and children will be burned and bombed to
     death  in the cities, at last the actually  guilty
     party will have to suffer for its sin, even if the
     means of punishment will prove to be more humane.
