The sad part about all of this is that so many individuals believed him or just stood by as he conducted his murderous campaign against the Jews. The result was that 6 million Jews lost their lives and saw their families decimated during the Holocaust. Therefore, his initial solution was to banish as many Jews from society as possible by imprisoning them in concentration camps throughout Eastern Europe. Eventually, the plan was to exterminate as many of them as possible.
Hitler never actually sat down and pecked at a typewriter or wrote longhand, but instead dictated it to Rudolf Hess while pacing around his prison cell in and later at an inn at Berchtesgaden. Reading Mein Kampf is like listening to Hitler speak at length about his youth, early days in the Nazi Party, future plans for Germany, and ideas on politics and race.
In his book, Hitler divides humans into categories based on physical appearance, establishing higher and lower orders, or types of humans. At the top, according to Hitler, is the Germanic man with his fair skin, blond hair and blue eyes. Hitler refers to this type of person as an Aryan. He asserts that the Aryan is the supreme form of human, or master race.
And so it follows in Hitler's thinking, if there is a supreme form of human, then there must be others less than supreme, the Untermenschen, or racially inferior.
Hitler assigns this position to Jews and the Slavic peoples, notably the Czechs, Poles, and Russians. In Mein Kampf, Hitler states: They then became the first technical instrument in the service of a developing culture. However, he adds they benefit only as long as the Aryan remains the absolute master and doesn't mingle or inter-marry with inferior conquered peoples.
But it is the Jews, Hitler says, who are engaged in a conspiracy to keep this master race from assuming its rightful position as rulers of the world, by tainting its racial and cultural purity and even inventing forms of government in which the Aryan comes to believe in equality and fails to recognize his racial superiority.
He outlines his thoughts in detail, accusing the Jews of conducting an international conspiracy to control world finances, controlling the press, inventing liberal democracy as well as Marxism, promoting prostitution and vice, and using culture to spread disharmony.
Throughout Mein Kampf, Hitler refers to Jews as parasites, liars, dirty, crafty, sly, wily, clever, without any true culture, a sponger, a middleman, a maggot, eternal blood suckers, repulsive, unscrupulous, monsters, foreign, menace, bloodthirsty, avaricious, the destroyer of Aryan humanity, and the mortal enemy of Aryan humanity This, combined with Hitler's racial attitude toward the Jews, would be shared to varying degrees by millions of Germans and people from occupied countries, so that they either remained silent or actively participated in the Nazi effort to exterminate the entire Jewish population of Europe.
Mein Kampf also provides an explanation for the military conquests later attempted by Hitler and the Germans. Hitler states that since the Aryans are the master race, they are entitled simply by that fact to acquire more land for themselves.
This Lebensraum, or living space, will be acquired by force, Hitler says, and includes the lands to the east of Germany, namely Russia. That land would be used to cultivate food and to provide room for the expanding Aryan population at the expense of the Slavic peoples, who were to be removed, eliminated, or enslaved.
But in order to achieve this, Hitler states, Germany must first defeat its old enemy France, to avenge the German defeat of World War I and to secure the western border.
Hitler bitterly recalls the end of the First World War, saying the German Army was denied its chance for victory on the battlefield by political treachery at home.
In the second volume of Mein Kampf he attaches most of the blame to Jewish conspirators in a highly menacing and ever more threatening tone. When Mein Kampf was first released in it sold poorly.
People had been hoping for a juicy autobiography or a behind-the-scenes story of the Beer Hall Putsch. What they got were hundreds of pages of long, hard to follow sentences and wandering paragraphs composed by a self-educated man. However, after Hitler became Chancellor of Germany, millions of copies were sold.
It was considered proper to own a copy and to give one to newlyweds, high school graduates, or to celebrate any similar occasion. But few Germans ever read it cover to cover.
Although it made him rich, Hitler would later express regret that he produced Mein Kampf, considering the extent of its revelations.
Those revelations concerning the nature of his character and his blueprint for Germany's future served as a warning to the world.
A warning that was mostly ignored.Why did Hitler see the Jews as the inferior race? He believed in a full aryan world but his biggest enemies in his eyes were the Jews.
Disabled (mentally or physically imperfect), philosphers.
Today, the world continues to suffer under the false idea of a “Master Race.” Now it is the Jews who are claiming that they are superior to all other “inferior” races. The racial policy of Nazi Germany was a set of policies and laws implemented in were especially problematic in their eyes.
The first antisemitic law was promulgated with no clear definition of a Jew. Finally Ethnic Poles were believed by Hitler to be "biologically inferior race" that could never be educated or elevated through.
Biological differences – Hitler and many Nazis believed in the superiority of the Aryan (German) race and that Jews were inferior to such an extent that they were almost non-human in his eyes.

Gunther considered Jews an "Asiatic race inferior to all European races". He saw the Jews as an inferior race – so inferior that he did not see them as even being human and felt that the only solution was to eliminate them entirely.
