The New York Times' first article about Hitler's rise is absolutely stunning: "Hitler's anti-Semitism was not so violent or genuine as it sounded."

This attitude was, apparently, widespread among Germans at the time; many of them saw Hitler's anti-Semitism as a ploy for votes among the German masses.
