Esperanto in Hitler's Words

Hitler's Words: Mein Kampf on Esperanto

On this first and greatest lie, that the Jews are not a race but a religion, more and more lies are based in necessary consequence. Among them is the lie with regard to the language of the Jew. For him it is not a means for expressing his thoughts, but a means for concealing them. When he speaks French, he thinks Jewish, and while he turns out German verses, in his life he only expresses the nature of his nationality. As long as the Jew has not become the master of the other peoples, he must speak their languages whether he likes it or not, but as soon as they became his slaves, they would all have to learn a universal language (Esperanto, for instance!), so that by this additional means the Jews could more easily dominate them!

Universal Esperanto Association intervened on a program "HATE SPEECH and the HOLOCAUST": I spoke in front of two hundred people, including several ambassadors (i.a. Pedersen of Norway) of how Hitler had expressed hatred for Esperanto and together with Stalin annihilated the Esperanto movement for over a decade in Europe. I asked: "How should a community like ours react when you are desvastated for a decade and the larger community doesn't acknowledge your suffering, dispite Hitler's public warning?" I spoke personally  with the panel and received feedback.
This was a UN-New York program this past Friday, February 1st, 2013.
