A Personal Letter

Johann von Leers wrote H. Keith Thompson a hate filled letter ridiculing the list as "a flat Jewish hoax," and provided an exaggerated list in response. Here von Leers is subtley providing his own false narrative to another thinker in American far-right circles. For example, it was known that von Leers was associated with both Haj Amin al-Husseini and the war criminal Eisele, but one must wonder why he would not mention any further associations to Thompson, who spent his own time advocating on behalf of war criminals.
