March 30, 1892 – January 25, 1972
In our four years of running this website, we've profiled Jewish sociopaths, Jewish Satanists, and even Jewish antisemities. Jewish Nazis? That'll be a first.
Still, we often get searches for various Nazis. Himmler, Eichmann, Goering, Goebbels, Hess, Bormann, you name it. None of them were remotely Jewish; for some reason, people seem to need confirmation.
But Erhard Milch, who oversaw the Luftwaffe — Nazi Germany's air force — was. He was a son of a Jewish pharmacist.
Now, the Nazis had to reconcile that, of course. So they got Milch's mother to sign an affidavit that his father wasn't really his father. A bit ridiculous, obviously, but as far as the Nazis go, not exactly at the top of the insane list.
So, fine, this is how the Nazis reconciled it.
But how did Milch?
Verdict: Barely a Jew.
