A rare book owned by Adolf Hitler, which is believed to detail the blueprint for a North American Holocaust, has been acquired by Canada's national archive.
The 137-page report -- titled "Statistics, Media and Organizations of Jewry in the United States and Canada" -- was compiled in 1944 by German linguist and researcher Heinz Kloss. He was responsible for conducting key research for the Nazi regime on issues such as nationality, with a particular focus on the United States.
Kloss -- who visited the United States in 1936-7 and maintained a network of Nazi sympathizers -- used 1930s population data to produce a personalized census of the Jewish population in North America, along with information about Jewish organizations and newspapers.
