Day 249 of Hitler’s Chancellorship (Germany)

“Mr. Crane…was enthusiastic about his Hitler interview…Crane found Hitler simple, enthusiastic, bent on stirring the German people to passionate self-confidence and wanting in knowledge of foreign problems. This is the same story I have heard again and again.”

William E. Dodd, United States Ambassador to Germany, Ambassador Dodd’s Diaries, October 5, 1933
