The History Learning Site, 9 Mar Adolf Hitler considered education to be a very important factor in Nazi Germany. After his failure to get into the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna Hitler developed a loathing of intellectuals who in his opinion based their teaching on what could be learned behind desks or in lectures halls. Hitler wrote that the first duty of the state was to care for the physical well-being and physical development of the young:
The facts are these: First, Jewry is absolutely a race and not a religious association.
Through thousands of years of the closest kind of inbreeding, Jews have maintained their peculiarities far more distinctly than many of the peoples among whom they have lived.
Thus there lives amongst us an alien race that neither wishes to neither sacrifice its racial character nor deny its feeling, thinking, and striving. Nevertheless, it possesses all the political rights we do. If the ethos of the Jews is revealed in the purely material realm, it is even clearer in their thinking and striving.
In their dance around the golden calf the value of the individual is no longer decided by his character but by the size of his fortune. The loftiness of a nation is no longer to be measured by the sum of its moral and spiritual powers, but rather by the wealth of its material possessions.
This thinking and striving after money and power, and the feelings that go along with it, serve the purposes of the Jew who is unscrupulous in the choice of methods and pitiless in their employment. His power is the power of money, which multiplies in his hands through interest, and which forces peoples under the most dangerous of yokes.
Its golden glitter, so attractive in the beginning, conceals the ultimately tragic consequences. Everything men strive after as a higher goal, be it religion, socialism, democracy, is to the Jew only means to an end, the way to satisfy his lust for gold and domination.
In his effects and consequences he is like a racial cancer of the nations. Thus, an anti-Semitism based purely on emotional grounds will find its ultimate expression in the form of the pogrom. But an anti-Semitism based on reason must lead to a systematic legal elimination of the privileges of the Jews.
The ultimate objective of such legislation must, however, be the irrevocable removal of the Jews from civil and cultural influence. To this end, the installation of nationally-minded leadership personalities with an inner sense of responsibility is necessary.
This could only be eliminated by denying the Jews civil and cultural influence through legal means. The question must be asked: This model was set forth not in racial terms, but again, based on the activities pursued by Jewry, which Hitler viewed as destructive to the culture and destiny of Germany.
Once, when passing through the inner city of Vienna, I suddenly encountered a phenomenon in a long caftan and wearing black side-locks. My first thought was: They certainly did not have this appearance in Linz.

What soon gave me cause for very serious consideration were the activities of the Jews in certain branches of life. Was there any undertaking, any form of foulness, especially in cultural life, in which at least one Jew did not participate?
I discovered the Jewish activities in the press, in art, in literature and the theatre. One needed only to look at the posters announcing the hideous productions of the cinema and study the names of the authors in order to become permanently adamant on Jewish questions.
Here was a pestilence with which the public was being infected. I began to carefully investigate the names of all the fabricators of these unclean products. The result of that inquiry was still more disfavourable to the attitude to which I had hitherto held in regard to the Jews.
The fact that nine-tenths of all the smutty literature, artistic tripe and theatrical banalities, had to be charged to the account of people who formed scarcely one per cent of the nation - that fact could not be gainsaid.

After. They say "the winner's write history," and it is absolutely true; the most egregious example in modern times has to be the mainstream (mis)understanding of Adolf Hitler and pre-WWII Germany. The SA (Sturmabteilung) had been instrumental in Hitler's rise to power.
