As I was to learn from bitter experience, it was not the sort of National-Socialism Hitler had in mind. That was the atmosphere into which I was born in 1887, which these days is at least three worlds away. It also saw the inception of my infant nickname of ‘Putzi’ which I have had to suffer in impotent annoyance ever since. At the age of two I caught diphtheria, at a time when serums and child surgery were little trusted. ’ In Bavarian country speech ‘Putzi’ means little fellow, and although I am now seventy and still six-foot-four the name has stuck.

I was far from impressed, but we saw the train off and then my new acquaintance asked if he could accompany me to the meeting. So we went out and took a tram to the Kindlkeller beer-hall, where it was taking place. I could get little out of Rosenberg beyond the fact that he was a Balt and totally ignorant of the world outside Central Europe. The Kindlkeller, which was a big L-shaped hall, was crammed full with a very mixed audience. There seemed to be a lot of people of the concierge or small shopkeeper class, a sprinkling of the former officer and minor civil servant type, a tremendous number of young people, and the rest artisans, with a high proportion of the spectators in Bavarian national costume.

Hitler. There are quite a lot of placards up announcing a meeting this evening. They say he puts signs up saying ‘No entry for Jews’, but he has a most persuasive line about German honour and rights for the workers and a new society. I have the impression he’s going to play a big part, and whether you like him or not he certainly knows what he wants. He says the people in Berlin will never unite the nation the way they are going on at the moment. The first thing is to get the red rabble off the streets and the youngsters away from the street comers, instil some sort of order and discipline into them again and restore a measure of self-respect into the Army and the people who fought in the war.
