“… you can easily see how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had boundless ambition for his country, which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.”


When JFK was writing about Hitler, his suicide had happened just four months earlier. It shows a side of Kennedy we’ve never seen before.

The young JFK was Germany, just months after the Allied victory. Already a scholar on global politics, Kennedy seems fascinated with Hitler and his place in history.

Kennedy gave the diary to his Senate research assistant Deidre Henderson, who published it in book form in the mid-’90s.
