IV a.Nr.:2427

Report to the Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior, Munich

Re: The conditional parole of the writer 
ADOLF HITLER, of the veterinarian DR. FRIEDRICH WEBER, and of the 
Lieutenant Colonel retd, HERMANN KRIEBEL

The State Police Department has already expressed 
its opinion in the report of May 8, 1924 to the effect 
that, in consideration of the temperament and energy, 
with which Hitler pursues his political ambitions, it 
is to be definitely assumed that he would not give up 
these ambitions even after his release from imprisonment;  
but that he will remain a continual danger for the inner 
and exterior security of the State. Until the present time, 
no reason has been found which could have led the police 
department to a change of its former opinion.

If the police department takes the stand that Hitler and 
Dr. Weber should not be released on October 1, 1924, 
this decision is based on the following reasons: Even 
during the trial the three defendants have repeatedly 
declared that immediately upon their release they will 
again promote the National Socialist movement  and 
that they will continue to work in the same manner as 
formerly. Hitler, Kriebel, and Dr. Weber are now as before 
the leaders of the dissolved paramilitary troops and the 
spiritual leaders of its now existing camouflaged front 
organizations. Therefore a release of the three named 
persons, even on conditional parole

should not be considered. However, should the court 
unexpectedly grant a parole it would be compulsory for 
the given reason to deport Hitler as the soul of the entire 
nationalistic and racial movement in order to avoid the 
immediate danger to the Bavarian State. In respect to this 
I refer to my previous report of May 8, 1924 in which I 
fully explained the reasons of my request for Hitler's 
deportation from Bavaria.

                       The numerous riots committed by his 
followers, until the time of the Putsch are to be accredited 
to his influence. The moment he is set free Hitler will, 
because of his energy, become immediately again the 
generator of repeated heavy riotous disturbances of the 
public order. He will continuously endanger the security 
of the State. Hitler will resume his political activities, 
and the hope of the nationalists and racists that he will 
succeed in moving the present disunity and the disunion 
among the officials of the paramilitary troops will be 
fulfilled. Hitler's influence on all nationalistic inclined - 
today he is more than before the soul of the entire 
movement - will again carry the entire movement forward. 
It will even absorb great masses of persons who are now 
foreign to his ranks and convert them to the idea of the 
National Socialist German Workers' Party. In order to 
accomplish this he will greatly revive the mass 
assemblies, he will organize demonstrations as before 
the Putsch, and we can surely expect such outbreaks as 
are still vivid in our memory. Hitler will again take

            up his relentless fight against the Government 
and not abstain from violations of the law even if he 
is to face the revocation of his parole,

 Therefore it is completely immaterial whether, as 
expressed, he will take up his residence in Berlin or 
in the Mecklenburgs upon his release or whether he 
will remain in Munich itself.
