I was rather astonished that Georg Ritter von Schönerer, the Nazi forerunner, has never been mentioned at this forum. He was the »Fuhrer's Fuhrer«. Understanding the Schönerians is fundamental for understading the Nazi movement. Hitler's compatriot, born in 1842 in Vienna, pan-German, anti-Slav, anti-Semite, anti-Catholic, Schönerer had significant influence on Austrian and German political thought of the late 19th century. He initiated the climate of hatred and intolerance that Hitler drove to the climax about twenty years later. Initially he wasn’t involved in politics but after the defeat of Konigsgrätz in 1866 where Prussians defeated the Habsburgs he became a despiser of the Austro Hungarian Monarchy and admirer of Bismarck. He considered the Hohenzollerns as the real leaders of all German-speaking people. He was the founder of Alldeutsches Partei (Pan-German Party); his motto was »Not liberal, not clerical but national«.. In 1885, he added the »Aryan clause« into his political program, excluding the Jews from German nation. According to him, if you were Jewish, you could not be German. This decision was adopted by many Germans who wanted to expel Jews from the society. He started the "de-Jewification" of the German nation. Their slogan became »Through purity to unity« and their sign of recognition was greeting »Heil«; their leader was the »Führer«. The Schönerians rejected the »international and Jewish art« as »decadent«.Like his political successor Hitler, Schönerer was sentenced to 4 months in prison for an attack on a Jewish newspaper and was stripped off his political rights for 5 years. It is quite certain that young Hitler, who arrived in Vienna in 1907, fell under the influence of the Schönerians who had their newspaper, the Alldeutsches Tagblatt. In Mein Kampf, Hitler wrote: »when I came to Vienna, my sympathies were fully and wholly on the side of the Pan German tendency. « When he left from Vienna to Munich in 1913 he took with him Schönerer's seeds of future Nazis. Therefore, in my opinion, the 2nd world war cannot be considered as a continuation of the Great War but as a completely new war based on new ideology founded on Schönerer's pathological hatred against Slavs, Semites and everything that could hinder unification of all Germans in the Greater German Reich, under the leadership of the »Führer«. The Great War has started for completely different reasons and was waged for territories, not with the aim of ethnic cleansing of Historically German Territories.
