Summary
  • Early in his career, Hitler took inspiration from Mussolini--this fact is widely known. But an equally important role model for Hitler has been neglected: Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey, who inspired Hitler to remake Germany along nationalist, secular, totalitarian, and ethnically exclusive lines. Stefan Ihrig tells this compelling story.
  • It is Stefan Ihrig s contention, in his fascinating <i>Atatu rk and the Nazi Imagination</i>, that it was Atatu rk who in many ways molded and inspired the Nazi enterprise.--Mitchell Abidor"Jewish Currents" (03/07/2015)"

Summary expansion
Early in his career, Adolf Hitler took inspiration from Benito Mussolini, his senior colleague in fascism this fact is widely known. But an equally important role model for Hitler and the Nazis has been almost entirely neglected: Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey. Stefan Ihrig s compelling presentation of this untold story promises to rewrite our understanding of the roots of Nazi ideology and strategy.</p>Hitler was deeply interested in Turkish affairs after 1919. He not only admired but also sought to imitate Ataturk s radical construction of a new nation from the ashes of defeat in World War I. Hitler and the Nazis watched closely as Ataturk defied the Western powers to seize government, and they modeled the Munich Putsch to a large degree on Ataturk s rebellion in Ankara. Hitler later remarked that in the political aftermath of the Great War, Ataturk was his master, he and Mussolini his students.</p>This was no fading fascination. As the Nazis struggled through the 1920s, Ataturk remained Hitler s star in the darkness, his inspiration for remaking Germany along nationalist, secular, totalitarian, and ethnically exclusive lines. Nor did it escape Hitler s notice how ruthlessly Turkish governments had dealt with Armenian and Greek minorities, whom influential Nazis directly compared with German Jews. The New Turkey, or at least those aspects of it that the Nazis chose to see, became a model for Hitler s plans and dreams in the years leading up to the invasion of Poland.</p>"
