Christmas for Hitler
...according to a police report, Hitler declared in a speech in Munich on Dec 18, 1926, that "Christmas was significant precisely for National-Socialists, as Christ had been the greatest precursor in the struggle against the Jewish world enemy. Christ had not been the apostle of peace that the Church had afterward made of him, but rather was the greatest fighting personality that had ever lived. For millennia the teaching of Christ had been fundamental in the fight against the Jew as the enemy of humanity. The task that Christ had started, he [Hitler] would fulfill. National Socialism was nothing but a practical fulfillment of the teachings of Christ." Saul Friedlander, Nazi Germany and the Jews vol. 1 p. 102.
