He said: "Taken together, the pieces of evidence build a compelling picture that this was indeed an autobiography written to boost Hitler's profile as the 'German saviour' and that even at this early stage of his career he was an astute and manipulative political operator. H itler had been leader of the Nazi Party for two years when the book was published, and months later he led the Beer Hall Putsch in a failed attempt to seize control of power in Bavaria, which led to his imprisonment.
It would be another 10 years before he became Chancellor.

German-born Prof Weber said: "To find it was actually written by Hitler himself demonstrates that he was a conniving political operator with a masterful understanding of political processes and narratives long before he drafted what is regarded as his first autobiography, Mein Kampf.
H e said the book was crucial in helping Hitler build his profile among the more conservative elements of German society in anticipation of an imminent national revolution.

It was for that reason that von Koerber was handpicked as the writer to create the impression that Hitler already had widespread support among traditional conservatives as he built his power base. Professor Weber presents his findings in a new book, due to be published in the UK next year, which has the working title Metamorphosis - How Adolf Hitler Became a Nazi.

Frank had control of the confiscations from Poland and Himmler of the works looted by the SS.
Signed by the Führer himself
Himmler and Frank were able to take decisions on their confiscations independent of the Sonderauftrag. Rosenberg also defended his domain successfully against the interests of Hermann Voss and the Party Chancellery until There is no doubt that the National Socialists engaged in extensive looting of art on the orders of Adolf Hitler. This fact, though, does not suffice to conclude that all stolen works were intended for his museum plans. According to the current research, it can be verified that the Sonderauftrag Linz collection contained confiscated works from Germany, Austria, France, the Czech Republic, and, in some very few cases, Poland and Russia in The objects from Germany were generally from confiscations carried out by the Gestapo state secret police and regional finance offices; 63 artworks were from France.
By contrast, it remains uncertain to what extent 65 selected works from the confiscated Polish Lanckoronksi Collection were actually intended for the Sonderauftrag. Of the nearly works, some were acquired through the art trade or directly from private owners. The remaining were drawn from forced sales, came from other National Socialist entities, or could until now not be traced with certainty. All purchased works can have stem med from confiscated property, have been sold under duress, or have been purchased legally.
It is then entirely possible that paintings sold by the art trade originated from illegally seized property. The German and international art market profited between and from sales by Jews who had to flee from Germany and the occupied areas. The Database.

The DHM image database contains nearly data records with information on the works of art collected for the Sonderauftrag Linz between and Almost all of the works acquired by the Sonderauftrag can be documented with photographs. The database thus offers for the first time a look at the works of art collected by Adolf Hitler, Hans Posse, and Hermann Voss. The Dresden catalogue is now in the Bundesarchiv. According to historical sources, the Dresden catalogue does not list all of the Sonderauftrag Linz works.
Hermann Voss no longer inventoried numerous acquisitions—presumably because of the war. An updated version of the Dresden catalogue was also produced during this period. The present database was augmented by several further data records for paintings identified as part of the Linz collection through Dresden and other records. The Dresden catalogue and its Linz appendix as well as the Wiedemann list are therefore the sources — and thus the most immediate evidence — of the Linz collection.
The Search for the Owners. Initial enquires into the rightful owners were carried out by the Allies at the Munich Central Collecting Point. The TVK analysed the extensive Sonderauftrag correspondence, which the American occupation forces had microfilmed. This database, though, can only include information that can be extracted from the Sonderauftrag records and from pertinent literature. In this regard, this database is not a substitute for provenance research.
In the process, records on works with an unresolved provenance, i. In addition, recordkeeping first began in At certain points, though, the Dresden catalogue conflicts with the results of enquiries in France and Holland. The database follows in general the German records. It also does contain information on the numerous graphics that are listed in the Linz appendix. The present database is thus not the result of independent provenance research, but rather utilises solely the previously-known case histories of the individual works of art.

However, it does represent an instrument with can serve to identify works that still today are not recognised as forced sales. Used in association with other documents auction catalogues, etc. In addition, it allows art historians to view pictures that were returned to private owners in and that have not been displayed publicly since.
What makes this database truly unique, though, is the first-time bringing together of the information on the paintings and objects from the numerous file cards copied from the originals stored in the Bundesarchiv with the photographs copied from the BADV archive in Berlin. His database contained all of the material on the Linz collection that he had been able to access, but almost no images..
The idea of bringing the data together with the copied photographs and file cards stemmed from the German Historical Museum, which through its collection has a focus on researching the National Socialist policy towards art. The Federal Office for Central Services and Unresolved Property Issues, which had already digitised the photographic archive, provided the relevant files. There were naturally many corrections and comparisons, for producing a database with nearly data records is not an easy task.
Nonetheless, the cooperation on the part of the different institutions resulted in an important gain for research as well as for the general public with an interest in National Socialist policies on art. The publishers also hope that they have contributed to the demythification process. A tendency exists to attribute all confiscated and looted works to the Linz collection — a practice that is often seen in journalistic publications.
