Abstract

This essay focusses on the memorandum by Helmut Stellrecht, which is considered to be the last example of national socialist policy at work. Reinforced by national socialist ideology and filled with the hope the heterogeneous anti-Hitler coalition might fail, Helmut Stellrecht developed a kind of double strategy for a new European order. He tried to convince the western allies, on the one hand, how national socialism was indispensible to maintaining stability between "eastern Bolshevism" and "western democracy". On the other hand, he tried to make clear that the real threat came from the east and stressed the need for an active deterrent. While Stellrecht's alignment with national socialist ideology made him a leading figure within the NSDAP ranks, he represents those national socialist leaders of the second order who have until recently been given scant attention.
