Hitler-owned book hints at plans for North American Holocaust

Excerpted from CNN 1.25.2018

(CNN)A rare book owned by Adolf Hitler, which is believed to detail the blueprint for a North American Holocaust, has been acquired by Canada’s national archive.

Library and Archives Canada purchased the document last year for $4,500, and it was unveiled for the first time Wednesday, just days before International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Sunday.

The 137-page report — titled “Statistics, Media and Organizations of Jewry in the United States and Canada” — was compiled in 1944 by German linguist and researcher Heinz Kloss. He was responsible for conducting key research for the Nazi regime on issues such as nationality, with a particular focus on the United States.
Kloss — who visited the United States in 1936-7 and maintained a network of Nazi sympathizers — used 1930s population data to produce a personalized census of the Jewish population in North America, along with information about Jewish organizations and newspapers.
The report, along with other books owned by Hitler, is believed to have been brought to the United States as a souvenir by American soldiers after they raided his property at the end of the war in the spring of 1945.
The Holocaust Education Trust expressed shock over the finding. “This story highlights Hitler’s obsessive anti-Semitism and the chilling Nazi ambition to murder Jewish people wherever they were in the world,” a representative for the trust told CNN.
