What did Adolf Hitler think about Italians?

Post by George L Gregory » 23 Oct 2021 05:48

Hitler was still audacious enough when meeting Mussolini for the first time in 1934 to tell him that all Mediterranean peoples were "tainted" by "Negro blood" and thus in his racist view they were degenerate.

Is there a transcript of the meeting? What did Hitler actually say?

It just seems a bit odd when the Italians were used as examples of Aryans/related blood in the Ahnenpaß document.
