This month Atheist Advocates of SF features Dr. Richard Carrier speaking on "Hitler Was No Atheist: The Evidence of the Mysterious Table Talk.
Smuggled out of Germany by a Nazi's wife in 1945. Burned in the allied firebombing of Munich. Tucked away in an offhand drawer by one of Hitler's stenographers. Edited by the notorious Nazi secretary Martin Bormann. Rattled down by busy stenographers during dinners, lunches, and tea as Hitler ranted on about all manner of diverse subjects in his bunker in Poland. First translated and popularized by Francois Genoud, a Swiss banker who remained an unrepentant Nazi and financier of terrorists right up to his suicide in 1996. The mysterious Table Talk is often now quoted as revealing that Hitler was secretly a Christian-hating atheist. Is that true? It's a long, crazy story. Come hear it told by the very scholar who exposed Genoud's fraud and forced a major publisher to rethink its English translation of the original "Table Talk" manuscripts.
