Note to my readers: The book linked below is an English translation. I have long wished to read Corneliu Codreanu’s works; and now naturally, I flip down first with keen interest to his observations on Germany. Quoting the PDF’s page 44:
There, in the midst of the misery in which the German people struggled, I was impressed by the spirit of discipline, the capacity for labor, sense of duty, correctitude, power of resistance, and the faith in better days. . . . I had many discussions with the students at Berlin in 1922, who are certainly Hitlerites today, and I am proud to have been their teacher in anti-Semitism, exporting to them the truths I learned in Iasi. Of Adolf Hitler I heard for the first time around the middle of October 1922. I had gone to a worker in North Berlin with whom I established a good relationship, who was making „swastikas.“ His narne was Strumpf and he lived at 3 Salzwedeler Strasse. He told me: „It is said that an anti-Semitic movement has been started in Muenchen by a 36 year old painter, Hitler. It seems to me he is the man we Germans have been waiting for.“ The foresight of this worker was fulfilled.
