NEW YORK — Konrad Heiden,
one of the earliest and most
relentless attackers of Hitler and
Nazism, died July 18 in New York.
He was 64 years old.
Mr. Heiden, a non-Jew, was born
in Munich, and as a student and
journalist there, he stayed close
to Nazi activities, opposing Hitler
in person and in the press, until
he was forced to flee Germany
in 1933. He went to the Saar and
when it became part of Germany
in 1935 he fled to Paris.
Among his books written in
English are "A History of Na-
tional Socialism" (1935),
"Hitler" (1936), and "The New
Mr. Heiden was both feared
and hated by Hitler, and was high
on the Gestapo execution list.
When Hitler took over a new
country, one of his first moves was
to ban or burn Heiden's books.
He immigrated to the United
States in 1940 where he wrote his
most famous work "Der Fueher.:
Hitler's Rise to Power" (1944)
which is still considered a standard
reference on the Nazi era.
