Washington: A letter written by Adolf Hitler in 1919, that reveals his disdain for the Jewish people and his plans to exclude them from society, will be displayed for public viewing for the first time in an exhibit at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.

Hitler wrote the letter six years before the publication of his autobiography “Mein Kampf”.

The letter details what he calls the “Jewish threat,” and argues for Germans to hinder Jews`` ability to gain power and influence.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, that acquired the letter last year has said that the letter``s authenticity is indubitable, and that it is the “most significant document ever acquired” by the center, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the center said the letter documents the roots of Hitler’s anti-Semitic beliefs that he would work to carry out as German chancellor from 1933 to 1945.
