Early Hitler letter for the annihilation of Jews reportedly unveiled on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 in New York City by Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Los Angeles-based organization who acquired the four-page letter, according to several reports.

According to reports, the early letter of Hitler dated September 16, 1919 was addressed to Adolf Gemlich who was an army spy.

The letter of Hitler reportedly describes his hatred towards Jews outlining his plans for the removal of the Jews altogether which he says can only be accomplished, “Under a government of National strength and never under a government of National impotence,” as quoted from Simon Wiesenthal‘s website.

The early letter of Adolf Hitler was purchased by the Los Angeles-based organization for $150,000 from Profiles in History, a dealer in Calabasas Hills, California who acquired the document from a dealer in Kansas who was said to have purchased the said letter from a U.S. army soldier named William F. Ziegler. Reports said that Ziegler found the early letter from a Nazi archive near Nuremberg in Germany during the final months of World War II.

The letter was written in German in the year 1919 and believed to be Hitler‘s first written comments against the Jews. It was said that the early letter was typewritten in yellow sheets of nearly century-old paper using a German army typewriter with a signature of Adolf Hitler.
