About this Item

Large octavo. 15, [1]pp. Original printed wrappers. Published by the German Communist Party a few months before Hitler's rise to power, this anti-Nazi booklet documents the secret negotiations between SA leader Ernst Röhm* and Reichsbanner Karl Mayr**. In the course of these negotiations, Röhm asked Mayr if there was a way of bringing the S.A. and the Iron Front together, of getting rid of the useless political windbags and "making the soldier master of Germany"? The interview took place in Mayr's apartment, and with all the trappings of a spy movie; behind a curtain sat a lady taking shorthand notes. Mayr asked Röhm what grounds he had for thinking that he could detach the S.A. from the party. Röhm replied that he knew he had powerful and dangerous enemies in the party; Mayr's comment on this was: Would you like me to tell you the name of your future murderers? At that time Röhm's wild homosexual life had become fully public; there was great bitterness in the ranks against this leader who brought shame to the organization; Hitler had defiantly covered Röhm. "Captain Röhm", he said, "remains my Chief of Staff, now and after the elections, despite all slanders." The underground hostility to him was all the bitterer. A few months later, a Munich court actually did sentence two obscure National Socialists, Horn and Danzeisen, to short jail terms for having talked of murdering the Chief of Staff; but the court believed them when they said that it had been mere talk. The conversation between Röhm and Mayr seems likewise to have gone no farther than talk, because Mayr had lost his influence on the Iron Front. Lower corners bumped, thus slightly affecting pages throughout. Upper part of spine creased. Text in German. Wrappers in overall good-, interior in good to good+ condition. * Ernst Julius Günther Röhm (1887-1934) was a German officer in the Bavarian Army and later an early Nazi leader. He was a co-founder of the Sturmabteilung ("Storm Battalion"; SA), the Nazi Party militia, and later was its commander. In 1934, as part of the Night of the Long Knives, he was executed on Heinrich Himmler's orders as a potential rival. ** Captain Karl Mayr (1883-1945 in Buchenwald concentration camp) was a General Staff officer and Adolf Hitler's immediate superior in an army Intelligence Division in the Reichswehr, 1919-1920. Mayr was particularly known as the man who introduced Hitler to politics. In 1919, Mayr directed Hitler to write the Gemlich letter, in which Hitler first expressed his anti-semitic views in writing. Mayr in 1921 was still pro-Nazi, but later became a critic. In 1925 he joined the SPD. Subsequently he was the leader and editor of the Reichsbanner Schwarz-Rot-Gold, an SPD paramilitary force. In the early 1930s, Mayr collected among other things, information on Georg Bell, an associate of Ernst Röhm, and other material against the Nazi Party, which he leaked in the Social Democratic press. After 1933, Karl Mayr emigrated to France. After the German invasion of France in 1940, he was arrested in Paris by the Gestapo. Mayr was taken back to Germany, where on 9 February 1945 he was killed in Buchenwald concentration camp. Bookseller Inventory # 37984
