1935 January 24 Hitler again meets with Josef Lipski, the Polish ambassador. Hitler tells Lipski that "the moment will come when Poland and Germany will be forced to defend themselves from Soviet aggression."


Is it proper to assign all the blame for the misfortune of Europe's Jews to Hitler, when we read a note by the Polish ambassador Josef Lipski on a meeting with Hitler in September 1938: Hitler had mentioned to him, wrote Lipski, that he was toying with the idea of solving the Jewish problem in unison with Poland, Hungary, and perhaps Romania too by making them emigrate ("to the colonies"). Lipski wrote to his foreign minister in Warsaw: "I replied that we would erect a fine statue to him in Warsaw if he found a solution."

Does that make Lipski a Zionist?

Lipski came to Dallas in 1951. He married a local woman who had a son from a previous marriage. Lipski died in 1958 of heart problems.

I remember you and I discussing the significance of the stepson some time back, and how he might be tied to the Oldsmobile in Dallas. Did you get anymore on that?
