(1889 - 1945) Fuhrer of Germany and Nazi Party leader, Hitler's bloody rise to power, his military seizure of most of Europe and North Africa and his genocidal racial policies culminated in suicide in his Berlin bunker as Russian troops approached. HITLER SEEKS A HALT TO INFIGHTING IN THE NASCENT AUSTRIAN NAZI PARTY. Important content signed document sent to him and also signed twice by BRUNO HEINEMANN (1858-1938), an early Nazi Party official who served as the first chairman of the NSDAP's Committee for Investigation and Settlement as well as a Reich Organization leader until he was succeeded by Georg Strasser. The document, written by Heinemann, details a series of correspondences concerning an ongoing issue between two party officials in Austria, Dr. Richard Suchewirth (1895 -1965), co-founder of the Austrian NSDAP, and Col. Friedrich Jankovic, Plenipotentiary of the Austrian NSDAP. The document, 7pp. legal folio, Munich, November 8, 1926, reads in part: '...[to Suchewirth] Since there can be only one leader who can keep an eye on everything...Jankovic was entitled to those decrees...which you complain about...None other than retired Oberst Jankovic has the responsibility...Hence I am not in the position to accommodate your suggestions...I cannot approve your immediate resignation as representative. According to valid rules every National Socialist has to remain at this post until he is relieved. This whole incident makes me deeply worried about the movement in Austria. If there are already such contrasts within the first days and herald an inner fight, then productive work against an external enemy can't be expected...On Sept. 14 the country leader of Austria...Friedrich Jankovic entrusted Prof. Dr. Richard Suchenwirth with his representation during his absence...on October 3...Jankovic sent his representative a few decrees effective immediately. Dr. Suchenwirth complains...about the intrusion in his rights and that Jankovic treated him like his employee...[to Suchenwirth dated November 18, 1926] The country leader is even during a temporary absence from the main office responsible for the organizational, propagandistic and political leadership of the movement...Hence he is entitled to give his representative any instructions he deems necessary...it is not considered an intrusion...treating him as an employee...' Hitler signs the conclusion of the document, authorizing Heinemann's decision. Slight edge wear, a few scattered ink stains, else fine. The Austrian branch of the Nazi Party was founded only a few months prior to this document's issuance. A great example of internal strife in the early days of the Nazi Party.
