Josef Mengele “Angel Of Death” Nazi Diaries Auction

The “Angel of Death” Nazi doctor, Josef Mengele, left a book of diaries that will go up for auction. The Hitler death camp diaries could fetch up to $1 million at the auction. New translations of Mengele’s diaries reveal his continued hatred of Jews as well as disdain for former U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower. In fact, he hated his own homeland after World War II and spoke how he felt about Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.

The diaries, written after World War II once Mengele had fled from the Allies to Latin America, contain his philosophical reflections, autobiographical stories and poems penned between 1960 to 1975. He writes “I heard the anecdote about the old Jew, who, before his death, told his son to climb onto the table and fall backwards into the arms of his father. The moral of the story is the advice: Don’t trust anybody, not even your own father. Without going into specifics, such human behavior (in the figurative sense) seems to be typical for and between Jews. But I am not one and I hope that my son doesn’t have Jewish blood either,” Mengele wrote in the diaries that cover over 3,000 pages.

In another excerpt written by the doctor who died in 1979, he talks of his hate for South American children. While observing native South American kids playing with marbles he writes, “They are too lazy to wash themselves and glare of dirt… For our boys it would be unreasonable to play with them, just because of the uninterrupted spitting.”

In another part of the diary, he writes, “Do people like Khrushchev with his petty bourgeois brutality, or Eisenhower, in his timid mediocrity, guarantee that one day, when they are at their wit’s end with their basic political and economic beliefs, will not just take the atomic bomb and eventually eradicate mankind on this planet. But even that-as mentioned earlier-would not matter in the bigger picture.”
