Records show Hitler enjoyed special treatment in prison

BERLIN (AP) Adolf Hitler enjoyed special treatment, including plentiful supplies of beer, during his time at Landsberg prison in Germany following a coup attempt ten years before he successfully came to power, according to newly published historical documents.

Historians have long been fascinated by the Nazi leader's time in Landsberg, where he and several followers were incarcerated after the unsuccessful Beer Hall Putsch of 1923, when Hitler tried to seize power in Bavaria. It was there that Hitler wrote much of the first volume of his book "Mein Kampf" and received a stream of visitors 330 to be precise, according to Peter Fleischmann, a German historian.

Fleischmann, who heads the Bavarian state archives in Nuremberg, said a review of newly published prison records reveals that Hitler and fellow members of the Nazi Party were treated much more favorably than socialists or communists who were also incarcerated for staging a coup several years earlier.

"Formally it was the same kind of sentence, but in practice it was completely different," Fleischmann said in a telephone interview Tuesday. "The leftists ... were mistreated while the rightists had their path greased for them."
