Mein Kampf;

This autobiography, which in English translates "My Battle" is about Adolf Hitler's youth, his early days in the Nazi party, his future plans for Germany and all his idea's on politics and race. In his book Hitler divides humans into categories based on physical appearance, Germanic man being at the top of the categories and the Jewish race being the main hurdle in his quest to achieve his master race or Aryan nation.

Adolf Hitler was in prison for high treason after a failed coup against the in power German government, serving only 13 months of a 5 year sentence when he wrote the first volume of Mein Kampf. In his diary Hitler wrote down all his views of life and of the world, political beliefs, his prejudices and hatreds and all his theories on his ideal Aryan nation. In Hitlers beliefs the only way to achieve Aryan supremacy was by ethnic cleansing of the German race. One of his points of view was that the Jewish race was responsible for the collapse of the German financial institution before World War 1 because they were in charge of the industry and that they had loaned large sums of money to nations on both sides so that neither could become powerful enough to win the war.
