Teeling, William: Know thy enemy. 1939.

At the Nuremberg Nazi Party Rally in 
September 1937 ... were pictures of the 
wonders of life in Germany under the Nazi Regime.                    

The first photograph in this room was a 
huge one of Hitler and underneathit [sic] 
was the caption:

      "In the beginning was the Word..."

Only a few weeks after I had seen this 
blasphemy from the Bible with my own 
eyes,I was in a Youth hostel in Cologne.
The following verses were hung in the 
living room.

We believe on this earth alone
In Adolf Hitler
We believe
That National Socialism
Will be the only happy-making
Creed for our people

We believe
Thatthere [sic] is a God in Heaven
Who created us,creates,leads
And directs us
And who evidently blesses us.

And we believe
That this God sent us
Adolf Hitler so that
Germany should be a
Foundation stone in all eternity.

Hitler knows of these attempts to deify him. 
He does not stop them.

The Mayor of Hamburg has assured me,"We need 
no priests or parsons. We communicate direct 
with God through Adolf Hitler. He ha' many 
Christ-like qualities."

 Teeling, William: Know thy enemy. 1939. pp. 27.28

When Lord Mount Temple visited him in 1935 
he told me, he was already talking to him 
about how he was guided "by his voices" .....

.... For years I looked at Salzburg and longed to 
bring it into the Reich, and at last, this year by 
hypnotic force that has been brought to pass."

Teeling, William: Know thy enemy.1939 pp.31.
