The Psychotic Chosen

April 25, 2003 12:47 AM

60 years ago Walter Langer developed a psychological profile of Adolf Hitler. Here's something he wrote that seems particularly relevant today:

A survey of all the evidence forces us to conclude that Hitler believes himself destined to become an Immortal Hitler, chosen by God to be the New Deliverer of Germany and the Founder of a new social order for the world. He firmly believes this and is certain that in spite of all the trials and tribulations through which he must pass he will finally attain that goal. The one condition is that he follow the dictates of the inner voice that have guided and protected him in the past.

Timothy Ryback has a feature in the Atlantic Monthly on Hitler's Forgotten Library.
