On Monday, July 29th, 2013 I was Deanna Spingola‘s guest on her radio show on Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN) during which I discussed Hitler’s concept of “Lebensraum” as put forth in his autobiography “Mein Kampf” which many believe was a blueprint for “aggressive war” but was not. I spoke about the problems with the “Hossbach Memorandum” that was entered as evidence concerning the allegations of plans for “aggressive war” (by Hitler and the NSDAP government) at the Nuremberg Trials (IMT), and how “Lebensraum” was also a major them in the course of those trials. I read from the testimony of one of the accused, Dr. Walther Emanuel Funk who discussed his own understanding of the concept of “Lebensraum” at Nuremberg. Additionally, I provided some background information on “Mein Kampf” and the various translations and touched on what is called “das Zweites Buch” (the Second Book) or “Volume II” and why we need to be skeptical with regards to its contents. No such book was ever authorized for publication by Hitler and the NSADP. As with the Hossbach document, the manuscript was found under suspicious circumstances and whose background and motives must be taken into account. Also, there are two separate English translations of that book and they do differ substantially. I must add that, this alleged second volume is often included with Murphy’s 1939 translation of “Mein Kampf” but without any background information as to it’s origins. Thus, many will presume it also came from Murphy when in fact it did not. He had only translated the original authorized German version of “Mein Kampf”.[audio https://justice4germans.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/spingola_speaks_-_j4g_mein_kampf_lebensraum_and_the_hossbach_memo_2013-07-29.mp3]

NOTE: RBN has a new format with longer station breaks so the actual air-time for the show is reduced by about 10 minutes. We did not take calls during the program in the interest of time. After commercial breaks it was about 68 minutes of air-time. As mentioned during the show, I have collated my notes from various sources which formed the basis for the above presentation into a single pdf document which you may download for free here.
