Note 012
by Joachim C. Fest

12 Kurt Ludecke notes in his book I Knew Hitler that during the early years of the movement he had witnessed how an older woman transferred to the party her whole inheritance, which had just been bequeathed to her. Hitler received further gifts from a Frau von Seidlitz, whose husband died a hostage during the rule of the Soviets. Also, Frau Bechstein declared that her family had repeatedly 'given its support' to Hitler; see Franz-Willing, Die Hitlerbewegung.
