Hermann Rauschning
[Hermann Rauschning]
August 7 1887 - February 1982
"Hermann Rauschning was at one time a leader of the National Socialist Party. He became President of the Danzig Farmers' Association and later President of the Danzig Senate. At that time he was an ardent Nazi, but when Party agents began to insist on the arrest of Catholic priests and the disenfranchisement of the Jews, he retired from his Presidency. In 1935, on account of his active support of constitutionalism, he was obliged to flee from the Free State. He saw the Party as it was, and has been for many years its bitter opponent."
Rauschning is most famous for his work Hitler Speaks where he describes the many meetings and conversations he had with Hitler. Swiss historian Wolfgang Haenel investigated the memoir and announced his findings in 1983 at a revisionist history conference in West Germany. The renowned Conversations with Hitler, he declared are a total fraud. The book has no value "except as a document of Allied war propaganda."
