As soon as the 30’s, there have been stories of Hitler having Jewish ancestries published in newspapers.
A paper about Hitler being part jewish publish in the Chicago Tribune in September, 20, 1933
And these newspapers were of course owned by Jewish leaders. So, Jewish leaders revealed that Hitler was a jew. Why did they do this quite incredible thing?
At first sight, it seems stupid. If he was really a jew, they didn’t have any reason for telling it. If he wasn’t a jew, there was no reason either. Why invent such a story?
My opinion is that those informations were not intended for gentiles, but for everyday jews. It was an internal communication plan.
The problem for Jewish leaders was the following: as Hitler was a jew (and 100 % Jewish, so, with a Jewish father and a Jewish mother), it was certainly well known among the jewish community. Jewish leaders couldn’t hide this. There were certainly rumors about this among the Jewish community. So, quickly, ordinary jews could have been able to connect the dots, and then to understand that their leaders were betraying them. It would have destroyed the great unity between everyday jews and their leaders. This would have been apocalyptic for these.
Thus, Jewish leader absolutely needed to deceive ordinary jews about Hitler’s Jewishness.
As jews knew that Hitler was Jewish to some extent, Jewish leaders couldn’t say that he wasn’t Jewish at all. Everyday jews would have known it was a lie. So, Jewish leaders had to recognize that Hitler was indeed a jew, thus confirming what jews already knew (that is, the part of the story jewish leaders couldn’t hide). But the deceiving part was to add that he was just quarter jewish (whereas he was most probably 100 % jewish).
