'GRAND MUFTI OF PALESTINE' AMIN AL-HUSSEINI

This 6 x 8-1/4 inch, 96 page hardcover book in good condition by Kurt Fischer-Werth was published in 1943 by Walter Tietz Verlag in Berlin. The book is about a very interesting figure from the Middle East and collaborator with both Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. The muslim leader of Palestine and the two Axis powers had mutual enemies: the British and the Jews. Amin Al-Husseini met with Himmler, Hitler and foreign minister von Ribbentrop, he made propagandistic radio broadcasts and by helping Germans recruit Bosnian Muslims for the Waffen-SS. He spoke in Berlin at the opening of the Islamic Central Institute in Berlin in 1942 and associates of him, together with associates of the former Iraqi Prime Minister even visited Sachsen-hausen concentration camp. Although some historians have questioned Al-Husseini's knowledge of the Holocaust while it was in progress, Wolfgang Schwanitz, a Middle East historian, notes that in his memoirs Husseini recalled that Heinrich Himmler, in the summer of 1943, while confiding some German war secrets, inveighed against Jewish 'War Guilt' and revealed the ongoing extermination of the Jews. A very interesting book about the muslim leader of Palestine, a lesser known 'Ally' of Nazi Germany.
