We must have all read and studied about Adolf Hitler who is perhaps one of the most hated men in the world. But when we go on and on about his evil ways, we never stop and think about his good side. Hitler is an enigma. He supported democracy and was not at all prejudiced against the Jews. But somewhere down the line, something changed and made him, compelled him to fight and fight hard and turn the tables of fortune towards Germany. He often said “The doom of a nation can be averted only by a storm of flowing passion, but only those who are passionate themselves can arouse passion in others”. And thus to prevent the doom of Germany, Hitler became what he was. There is no justifying killing millions of Jews in the name of race. There is no justifying the world war, the bloodiest war in the history of mankind, which Hitler started. But then there is no justifying human ignorance. Which brings to the question, how many of us have bothered to look at Hitler’s good side? I bet none of us. So now we present Hitler’s untold story, a story where he was a hero to millions of Germans.
ADOLF TAKES OVER A BANKRUPT STATE
On taking up office as Chancellor of Germany, Adolf Hitler was determined to address the economic catastrophe and coupled problems of unemployment and crime by any means and as soon as possible. He summoned the Reichsbank President, Dr. Hans Luther to his office. Luther was a frugal and practical man. Since the total remaining State Funds equaled only 150 million marks, he offered Adolf no assistance or advice. Adolf decided that Luther was not the man for the job When Adolf took office in 1933, Germany was the country with the bleakest future in Europe. Possibly no country in the world had worse prospects. Germany was technically bankrupt with no likelihood of rehabilitation. In such a scenario, Hitler introduced the Mefo bonds. Mefo Bonds, when presented to the Reichsbank could be converted into cash. Schacht designed the bonds to be short term so that there would be ready public acceptance of the bonds, which paid an interest rate of four percent, an acceptable figure at that time, and normal banknotes hidden under the mattress paid no interest at all! The public eagerly accepted the bonds and Adolf had his billions with which to create jobs without causing inflation. In the next four years the public subscribed to over 12 Billion marks worth of Mefo Bonds.The public eagerly accepted the bonds and Adolf had his billions with which he could create jobs without causing inflation. By the end of Adolf Hitler's first year in office unemployment had fallen from 6,000,000 to 3,374,000. An unprecedented 2,627,000 jobs had been created at a time when the rest of the world was in deep economic recession •Five years of National Socialist industrial and economic activity show that: The manufacture of diesel oil has increased by 66% •The production of oil fuel has increased by 80%
