Adolf Hitler believed a Jewish doctor poisoned his mother

Published on December 8th, 2009 | by Admin


A new book is claiming that Hitler’s hate for the Jews began with the mistaken belief that a Jewish doctor poisoned his mother.

Hitler’s mother Klara had breast cancer but died as a result of poisoning from the idoform which was given to her by Dr Eduard Bloch. The use of idoform as a treatment for breast cancer was a standard medical practice when she died in 1907 at the age of 47.

The future dictator was 18 at the time and the author of the book, Joachim Riecker, said “her painful death was a key moment in his [Hitler’s] development”.

“Hitler never forgave the Jewish doctor. In conversations with aides such as Josef Goebbels he referred to the Jews as being like TB and himself as a ‘healer’ who had to stamp it, and consequently them, out,” he said.
