The Goebbels Diaries 1942-1943

Edited, Translated and with an Introduction by Louis P. Lochner

Published 1948 in the United States of America - First Edition

The Goebbels Diaries provide a unique glimpse into the mind and true thoughts of one of the highest men in the Third Reich, and are therefore essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the mentality of Nazi leadership. The Diaries are indeed a very interesting read, as Goebbels seems to have written his own diary with the same care and quality of writing that he poured into his public propaganda efforts. It is clear from reading the Diaries that Goebbels truly believed that what the Nazis were doing was right and good, that Goebbels believed in God and Providence, and that Goebbels believed that the Jews were responsible for the war and that the Jews were a real threat to the world.

The link provided below contains only excerpts from the diaries. This is not sufficient to give the reader an accurate understanding of the ideas contained within the diaries, which discuss many many facets of Nazi daily life and the motivations behind a variety of actions. Unfortunately I have not been able to find the full text of the diaries on-line.
