A recent report about’s developing a "messiah complex" towards the end of World War II was revealed. The report was written in 1942 by Cambridge academic Joseph MacCurdy said Hitler was turning more and more to “Jew-phobia” as defeat impending.
The report was commissioned by social scientist Mark Abrams, who worked on the BBC's overseas propaganda analysis unit. The report emerged due to research into Mr. Abrams’ work.
"Hitler is caught up in a web of religious delusions," MacCurdy said in the report.
MacCurdy described how Hitler began to focus on the "Jewish poison" as the tide of World War II turned against Germany. Hitler believed that the Jews are the incarnation of evil, while he is the incarnation of the spirit of good, MacCurdy said. The Nazi leader thought he is a god by whose sacrifice victory over evil may be achieved. Hitler did not say this in so many words, MacCurday said, but such a system of ideas would cut back on what he does say that is otherwise incomprehensible.
Scott Anthony, a Cambridge historian stumbled on the report while researching MacCurdy's work. He said MacCurdy acknowledged that, faced with external failure, Hitler was focusing on a perceived “enemy within” instead, namely, the Jews.
"Given that we now know that the 'final solution' was commencing, this makes for heartbreaking reading," Anthony said.
