London: Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler's hatred of Jews actually stemmed from the First World War, due to his belief that they stole victory from Germany in the war, says a new book.

According to the book, 'November 9: How World War One Led to the Holocaust', Hitler slaughtered six million Jews in the Second World War just because of this longstanding belief, 'The Daily Telegraph' reported.

"In his madness Hitler was convinced that the 'Jewish poison' had done the same thing to his beloved Germany in 1918 what the 'cancer poison' had done to his beloved mother in 1907," historian Dr Joachim Riecker wrote in his book.

"The core of his hatred lies at the defeat of Germany in WW1 where Hitler blamed the Jews for defeat of the country, the collapse of the monarchy and the ruination of millions," he explained.

In fact, the book has examined the speeches both public and private of Hitler to try to solve the riddle of how a dictator could morph into the industrial-scale murder of an entire community during the Second World War.

Dr Riecker has discounted previously held theories that Hitler began hating the Jews as a Jewish doctor called Eduard Bloch unsuccessfully treated his mother Klara.

He wrote: "Adolf Hitler loved only two things in his life: his mother and the 'German Reich'. His mother died in 1907 very painfully from breast cancer which was seen at that time as the result of blood poisoning.

"Hitler saw the state 'poisoned' from within. Hitler lived in Munich where Jews played a leading role in the revolution against the monarchy on November9 1918. So suddenly the delusion came to his mind, that the Jews where the reason for the 'inner poisoning' of Germany and that they had stolen the victory from Germany."
