Note 009
by Joachim C. Fest

9 This remark of course does not burden the women alone with the responsibility for Hitler's rise; it is rather to be understood in the sense of the statement of an English scholar quoted by Simone de Beauvoir in her book The Second Sex, that men made the gods but women worshipped them. On Hitler's remark, see Zoller, Hitler privat.
