The statement re Hitlers mother turns things upsite down. This thesis was brought up by the US-historian Rudolph Binion but is not followed in this book. The title of the book "Hitlers Nov 9 - How WW1 led to the Holocaust" refers to Nov 9 1918, the date of the November-revolution in Germany and the fall of the monarchy. Germany was forced by a naval blockade that resulted in 2 million deaths into signing the capitulation on Nov 11 - contrary to the agreement with Wilson 14 Point plan.
