Adolf Hitler, the Decision-Making Process Leading to the “Final Solution of the Jewish Question,” and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Hajj Amin al-Hussayni: The Current State of Research
With the aggravation of the Middle East Conflict since the 1990s, the legacy of the history of the Holocaust and its repercussions for relations in this region have been of increasing interest to both scholars and politicians. This study analyzes the current state of research regarding the development of Nazi anti-Jewish policies in general, and the decision-making process that led to the Final Solution in particular (including the role of the Wannsee Conference). It also clarifies the nature of the relations between the Mufti and Nazi Germany, and provides a detailed description of the conversation between Hitler and the Mufti on November 28, 1941. A series of the most important relevant documents are included in the appendix.
