MOT Displays Hitler's First Anti-Semitic Writing
"What began as a private letter, one man's opinion, twenty-two years later became the 'Magna Carta' of an entire nation and led to the nearly total extinction of the Jewish people. This is an important lesson for future generations," said Rabbi Marvin Hier, Wiesenthal Center Dean and Founder. "Demagogues mean what they say and given the opportunity, carry out what they promise," he concluded.
The document is on permanent display at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles at the entrance to the Holocaust section.
The Wiesenthal Center archives is one of the largest Holocaust collections holding over 50,000 artifacts and memorabilia including photographs, thousands of documents, diaries, letters, artwork, and rare books. These include original letters of Anne Frank, a recreation of Simon Wiesenthal's Vienna office, an original letter written by Albert Einstein, a telephone from the Commandant's office in Auschwitz, and a handmade American flag presented by the inmates of the Mauthausen concentration camp to their American liberators. Many of these archives are currently on display at at the Museum of Tolerance Los Angeles.
