The Critical Mass of His Anti-Semitism

Adolf Hitler was obviously the most vicious, violent and murderous anti-Semite in human history. Consequently, it is very important to understand how he became one.

The best way to find an answer to this question is by using the avalanche paradigm. According to this paradigm, during his childhood, youth and young age (i.e., roughly by the age of 30 or so), Adolf Hitler accumulated the critical mass of anti-Semitic beliefs.

This critical mass triggered the anti-Semitic avalanche and ultimately the Holocaust avalanche – much like accumulation of a critical mass of snow triggers the snow avalanche.


A thorough study of Adolf Hitler’s biography reveals that this critical mass was accumulated in thirteen key steps:

  1. Domestic anti-Semitism present in just about every German family at that time. Judging by the fact that in his childhood he showed no signs of Judeophobia (and that their family physician Dr. Bloch was Jewish), this anti-Semitism was rather mild
  2. Dr. Pötsch’s history lessons. Although not explicitly anti-Semitic, they were fundamentally nationalist and racist. Which at least implicitly implied that Jews were a hostile nation (a hostile race, actually) and a threat to the Aryan-Germanic race
  3. General German nationalist environment in Linz where he grew up. Although not explicitly anti-Semitic, German nationalism always contained a significant dose of Judeophobia
  4. His personal experiences in Vienna where Jewish presence in the professions (doctor, lawyer, etc.), academia, business, finance, media, etc. was far higher than in the general population. Which planted in his mind a totally erroneous belief that Jews were in control of “all of the above”
  5. His personal interactions in Vienna with poor Jews, a significant percentage of whom were Marxists – or at least had a favorable view of Marxism. Which planted in his brain another totally erroneous belief – that Jews want to overthrow existing political, economic and social order and replace it with Marxist dictatorship
  6. Highly poisonous anti-Semitic atmosphere in Vienna which included general public, newspapers, magazines, radio, etc.. At that time Vienna was one of the most virulently anti-Jewish cities in Europe.
  7. Virulent anti-Semitism of von Schönerer – his political hero and his role model.
  8. Murderous anti-Semitism of Dr. Karl Lueger – another political hero of his and another role model.
  9. AntiSemitism of Adolf Lenz, whose core beliefs included the existential war between the “blond Aryan race” (i.e. Germans) and the “dark race” (i.e. Jews)
  10. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion – an anti-Semitic fabricated text purporting to describe a Jewish plan for global domination
  11. The Bolshevist revolution of October 1917 which created the existential Bolshevist threat to Germany and to the whole Europe. Many prominent leaders of this revolution and of the Bolshevist regime were Jewish which strengthened Hitler’s belief that Bolshevism was a Jewish conspiracy against Germany
  12. The stabin-the-back theory. It was a myth (very popular among the right-wing in Germany) that the German Army did not lose World War I on the battlefield but was instead betrayed by the civilians at home – especially by Jewish politicians (one of which – Hugo Preuß – was the author of the draft version of the constitution that was passed by the Weimar National Assembly and came into force in August 1919)
  13. Bolshevist coups in Bavaria, Hungary and Berlin whose leaders were Jewish

Consequently, it would be safe to conclude that the critical mass of Hitler’s anti-Semitism was accumulated sometime in 1919 – 1920 at the latest. But it did not got murderous until Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, thus starting a war with the Bolshevist regime. And the Holocaust avalanche.
