The Only Secret Recording of Hitler's Normal Voice | The Hitler-Mannerheim Recording

  • Published on May 29, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • Oddly enough although many speeches given by Adolf Hitler have been preserved, there is no audio footage of his normal conversational voice. Well, except one tape, recorded in secret by a Finnish sound engineer and released to the public only decades after the war ended.

    During his lifetime, but also in studies afterwards, Hitler has been revered for his ability to enchant crowds with his voice. The dictator realised, more than anyone at the time, the power of a well-staged speech, both to excite and intimidate.
    Because over 500 speeches, of which audio- and video footage has been preserved, we really only know the way of speaking of Hitler in its most dramatic form. It may come as a surprise because it’s not something you’d generally think of when talking about the rise of Hitler or the Second World War in general, but we only have recordings of Hitler giving speeches to massive crowds. And, sure, he managed to captivate and enchant those crowds with his signature raspy voice and dramatic way of speaking. I mean, he basically perfected demagoguery, and from photographs and documentation, we know he prepared his speeches into their minute detail. He didn’t just rehearse the content of his speeches, but actually practised and prepared the intonation of every word he uttered.
    Photographs were commissioned, in fact, to examine certain poses and body language, and to see if they were imposing enough to present to crowds. He even took acting lessons. Everything, to perfect his charisma and rhetoric. Hitler himself was aware of his rhetorical skill as, stating that he was “conscious that he had no equal in the art of swaying the masses.”
    And Hitler’s rise to power was made possible, in part, by an unprecedented propaganda campaign. Although admittedly there has been some academic debate that disputes the effects of Hitler’s speeches on the electoral success of the Nazi party. At any rate, the speeches made by Hitler were a sight to behold and engrained in the minds of anyone that witnessed it, even today.

      Even more impressive than his voice are his comments. Hitler is obviously extremely worried about the output of Soviet tanks and fighting in two fronts, and note that this is the Summer of 1942, Stalingrad and Normandy are yet to happen. Unaware that he was being recorded, we can see that Hitler was way more worried that he admitted publicly. Who knows, maybe intimately he understood much earlier that the war was going to be lost...

    As a German, i have heard this recording a few times. It is extremly eerie to hear him talk like a normal person. Like a neighbour. His Austrian accent is almost unnoticeable, his speech could easily pass as High German for someone not paying attention. Also, his choice of words, his pronunciation is almost modern. Not "old fashioned" as you would expect someone to talk in the 1930s or -40s. And to think that this is HIM. Having a random conversation. An i am sitting here, in Germany, listening to it on an American Website decades later... it is insane how history works.

    This is quite surprising in some ways to hear how normal he actually sounded like. He is presented via his speeches as he was always super tense, agitated, forceful and hypnotic, a little bit like a lunatic maybe. But he actually sounds just like a German guy I used to work with. Even his tone of voice is similar to him. Shockingly normal

    Many people fail to realise one of the reasons his voice was so deep and rasping was because he was badly injured in a gas attacked during WW1 which damaged his lungs and throat which left him with a permanent guttural hoarseness.

    This sort of thing is absolutely necessary to hear. Turning the villains of history into goose stepping caricatures and fairytale monsters allows us to distance ourselves from the reality that every unspeakably evil act in history was perpetrated by completely ordinary human beings, as well as all those yet to come.

      Human beings, yes...completely ordinary, I wouldn't agree. But I agree that turning the worst among us into "monsters" instead of just human beings who are bad people is an easy way to pretend that such evil qualities don't really exist in people. Just "monsters."

      It is important to emphasise, however, that Hitler TURNED HIMSELF into the ranting demagogue. In public appearances he CHOSE and/or had an irresistible impulse to appear in that (presumably he thought) passionate, hectoring style. He worked himself up to it, without any input from other individuals - just the emoting crowds. He must have dosed himself with honey and/or other emollients and anti-inflammatories, to sustain that theatrical pitch session after session - as well as an obliging tame doctor to tend to him.

      Exactly, culture gives the false impression Nazis were psychos and rabid people, when they were actually ordinary people in their majority, like in any society at any point in time. Its important to keep that in mind, because many of us could have been Nazis on Germany at that time, only that we cannot do the social experiment to prove it

      And your father is probably in heaven and never going to hear Hitler’s voice.
      From John 3- 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
      19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

    Very interesting. I read once of a woman who was allowed to interview Hitler for some English newspaper during his rise to power in the mid-1930's. She said that he was a perfect gentleman, very polite, and was able to answer her questions IN ENGLISH even though he did not speak it well.

    • Schinshikss
      Schinshikss Year ago +1406

      Back in early 2000s, Putin used to have similar respects globally of how he seemed sincere, friendly, and attempting to answer the interviewer/listener in their own language. Either that shows how one has to have a certain level of competence to do any evil, let alone good, or demonstrates how those dictators of atrocities were merely products of their age, and we have been attributing too much responsibility to them for systematic failures that everyone involved should have been responsible for.

    • Ken Behrendt
      Ken Behrendt Year ago +338

      I agree. I think that people eventually get leaders that reflect their values. If most of the population of a country are good and fair, they empower good and fair leaders. If most are bad and selfish, they tend to empower bad and selfish leaders. But what makes most of a population evil and selfish? Probably all due to the inequitable distribution of the world's resources within a nation and between nations. When one analyzes the causes of the many wars humans have fought, there are always economic reasons behind them. Some group that was not getting enough of the world's wealth grabs some of it away from another group who had too much of it.

      That woman's perception of Hitler would have been shaped by what she knew about him before she went into that interview. And of course that didn't include things that hadn't happened and hadn't been general knowledge yet. In the mid 1930s Hitler was not a war-monger yet, he had not yet comitted genocide, but he had taken a country that was on the verge of economical collapse and turned into a relatively prosperous nation. So of course she would see Hitler in much more positive light than we do today.

    I am Dutch, live in The Netherlands. I worked for a German company a couple of years.
    Our managing director (Geschäftsführender) was very hierarchic and not easy to approach. When he was in balance his voice sounded normal, charming and strong, like a strong leader should sound and his German language sounded melodious, but when he was angry and started screaming his voice changed into a sharp and schril sound and made me think he sounded like Hitler.
    It was scary stm bc he could flip just like that. And after the outburst completely normal again as if nothing had happened.
    Quite insane actually if you think of it. But we got used to it.
    In our office in The Netherlands when my Dutch Manager had him on the phone now and then and stm my German boss started screaming that out loud I could here him through the phone, lol. Then our Dutch Manager took the phone away from his ear and and held it up high and let him rant every time. Now and then he answered during the rant: oh yes......., yes........ yes.
    And then everything turned back normal again.
    That is the way to deal with a lunetic.

      @A. B. belachelijk. Ik werk al 38 jaar aaneengesloten. Ben zeer verantwoordelijk in mijn werk en heb zeker geen probleem met plichten die uit een baan voortvloeien. Ik doe overigens specialistisch werk. Geen 9 tot 17.00 uur baan.
      U weet helemaal niets van mij en ook niet van de situatie waarin mijn collega's en ik zaten die voor deze Duitse werkgever werkten.
      Hoe durft u zo te oordelen.
      Wij hadden prettige ervaringen met onze Duitse collega's en met ons netwerk in Duitsland maar niet met deze man in kwestie en eigenlijk ook niet met zijn zakenpartners, alhoewel die iets prettiger in de omgang waren.
      Zal iets vertellen over de persoon waar u het denkt voor op te nemen en diens verantwoordelijkheidsgevoel. Deze blaaskaak luisterde niet naar zijn professionele mensen in loondienst en 3 zakenpartners. Alleen zijn mening telde. De zaak ging door zijn dominante aanpak failliet. En alsof dat al niet erg genoeg was, voordat de curator betrokken raakte, is hij er met miljoenen vandoor gegaan met zijn Antiliaanse vrouw naar de Caraïben.
      60 werknemers in Duitsland, Griekenland, Rusland en Nederland zonder werk. Niet uitbetaald loon en commissie aan werknemers, premies aan verzekeraars en schades aan klanten in internationale markten. Premies pensioenen niet betaald. Dus vele gedupeerden. De man was niet alleen verrückt maar ook nog eens een grote oplichter. Voor deze man heb ik geen goed woord over.
      Ik werk in de financiële dienstverlening. Dit betrof een niche business in de binnen- en zeevaart. Deze oplichter is berekenend geweest, heeft de boel snel laten groeien, en heeft het met opzet laten klappen. Er zijn na zijn vertrek vele praktijken aan het licht gekomen.. Hij heeft het niet helemaal alleen gedaan. Als deze man zijn gezicht laat zien in Nederland wordt hij opgepakt.
      Deze werkgever was geen prettige ervaring op zijn zachtst gezegd.
      Dus niet meer zo snel met uw oordeel klaarstaan.
      Ik heb er een lange carrière opzitten en heb vele vele overuren gemaakt, ook in de weekenden en dat doe ik nodig altijd, terwijl ik gewoon in loondienst ben. Doet u dat ook?

    My grandma met him after a speech or a public appearance of some sort of his that she attended with some friends. Afterwards Hitler did a what you’d call today Meet & Greet. Talking to the people, even signing autographs. She always said what a very nice guy Hitler was in that situation. Very friendly, courteous and even humorous. He smiled a lot and was overall super friendly. People loved him.

      I was thinking the same thing. He was basically an actor, changing roles, going into a character. One thing I have been curious about, he was born an Austrian, not German.

Looking up what the sparce German words meant was tedious with the words being so long and in another language but worth it to the overall understanding.

I asked him what they had seen of Nazis there and he said almost nothing, and that they rarely ever came through there at all. I also asked him what they actually saw of the war and fighting. He told me they only occasionally saw flashes (bombs) on the horizon and nothing more. After the war when was older and got a job, he delivered bread in the area around the Zeppelinwiese where they launched Zeppelins, but also was where Hitler gave many of his speeches.
    And he also told me how peanut butter was introduced to German children from parachuted supplies dropped by the Allies (Berlin Airlift).

    As a native Austrian, I can hear traces of his Austrian heritage, particularly at the 7m30s mark, he slipped a little more into Austrian German. Besides that, he’s remarkably “high German”. His inflection, flow, and verbal selection is quite modern and contemporary. Perceptively, he’s settled, confident, but does not appear arrogant to me - an interesting and unexpected mix of being “personable”, even though he should have never made beyond “being a paint artist”.

    He supposedly didn't like the familiarity of the German "Du" at all.

    His working class vocabulary was what made him understandable for the working class and farmers. But the vast amount of self studies it took to get to the level he was at politically and as a speaker,....he was a natural. He made NS a polished ideology :)
    The clips of the speeches we are often presented with are at the crescendo of his performance (And never with subtitles,....I wonder why?). Most of the time he spoke in a much calmer manner, but always with a razor sharp focus. He cut right to the bone of the matter in a simple language.

      Guess I should have shared the whole verse (John 3:13-21):

      “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
      “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.”

    For these years I have believed that Hitler's natural way of speaking was based on the earlier version of Standard German pronunciation called "die deutsche Bühnenaussprache" as standardized by Theodor Siebs in 1898 since his German pronunciation was always clear with Spanish-r (alveolar trill) coming out from his mouth.

    I am an American who grew up partly in Germany and speak German. I have heard Hitler speak in a normal voice in a movie called Swastika. It brought together a variety of "privately" shot film clips from all over the place. I believe the segment I am thinking of took place in at Berchtesgaden. I was not only surprised by how little of an Austrian accent he had, but also by his ability to charm others (though, after I thought about it, I realized he could never have gotten to where he did without some ability in this regard).

    Well, he didn't use the thundering "R" in his normal voice. He also has an audibly and relatively strong austrian accent in that recording (it's only a little sharpness in his consonants - most austrians I know or heard speaking (including Schwarzenegger) have a noticably strong accent in German, so Hitler must have trained that away a little when he came to Germany as it seems). The translation is not 100% accurate, but he also used a little bit of a somewhat antiquated way to phrase his sentences in German - it's not overly present, most of what he says and how he says it is still used in modern German, but some of it seemed a bit outdated to my ears.

      @herbert164 Thank the allies for that. The only reason we nowdays always think he had that old angry short man voice is thanks to allied propaganda at the time.

    His normal voice gives me more chills than his shouting and screaming. It is haunting in some way...

    It’s not so odd, people thought he mesmerized crowds. This is mostly because of those two sisters (I’ve forgotten their names) who worked the Nazi apparatus as radio personalities along with Lord Ha-Ha and Tokyo Rose. They said he hypnotized them. I’ve often thought that was a cute excuse for why they did war propaganda, a way to lessen their jail sentences after WW II. Thanks to Michael Jackson showing Leni Riefenstahl’s movie 🎥 I was able to see him in action. He was outstandingly good. What a performance! I realized he must have learned to do this as a child after watching German silent movies 🎥. If you watch “Metropolis” as I did, in college, when it was a rare film impossible to see - If you see it in silence as I did, it has much greater impact and you do a lot of private thinking. German silent screen stars are incredible! They express an impressive range of emotions. And there is a lot of emotional impact in many scenes. Not every theater back then had a pianist creating a background score. After I saw “Metropolis”, which I knew to be one of Hitler’s favorites, I walked around for hours. I lost all track of time. The Arbeiters, Workers, were an incredible reflection of Nazi slave labor. I began Holocaust studies in earnest the very next day. Hitler was truly an evil man to make that movie 🎞 which was a plea for compassion for factory workers into an actual living, breathing reality.

      Early on, before even Hitler knew of his ambitions he came under the tutelage of an occultist named Dietrich Eckhert. Through Eckhert Hitler met and trained by, oddly enough, a Jewish magician named Erik Jan Hanhussen who instructed Hitler in what today would be termed mentalism, specifically the use of voice control.
      The extant to which Hitler believed in the Occult is debated, but there is no doubt he used "occult" methodologies for very practical ends

    what stands out to me as a german speaking person is that he pronounces the 'r' completely different than in his 'other voice' and his thick Austrian accent

    Hearing his real voice humanizes him I’d think. Since you’re not hearing him in the speech voice. Either way, he was one of the most destructive people to ever exist.

    So weird to hear... In TV and movies, he's almost always portrayed to sound like a scrawny teenager ranting about this or that, but in reality he sounded indistinguishable from most men. We like to imagine that we can identify bad people with physical traits, even augmenting them after death so people will think even harsher of those bad eggs- but the capability to carry out atrocities lie within each and everyone of us. No mustache, scar, accent, or cut of a gib can be an indicator that a person will cause harm.

    people think he had that nasal voice tone he had when he was screaming during his speeches. But his normal talking voice was surprisingly deep.
