Mahatma Gandhi Wrote This Letter To Hitler Pleading for Peace

In 1939, as Adolf Hitler pulled the world to the brink of war, Mahatma Gandhi wrote him a letter pleading for peace and “for the sake of humanity.”
Gandhi even called Hitler a friend and referred to himself a “sincere friend.” That, friends, takes some serious pacifism. Unfortunately for Gandhi, the British government intercepted the letter and it never reached Hitler. More than a month later, Germany invaded Poland as the world looked on in horror.
Read the letter.
Here’s a transcript of the letter:
23 July 1939
Dear friend,
Friends have been urging me to write to you for the sake of humanity. But I have resisted their request, because of the feeling that any letter from me would be an impertinence. Something tells me that I must not calculate and that I must make my appeal for whatever it may be worth.
It is quite clear that you are today the one person in the world who can prevent a war which may reduce humanity to the savage state. Must you pay the price for an object however worthy it may appear to you to be? Will you listen to the appeal of one who has seliberately shunned the method of war not without considerable success? Any way I anticipate your forgiveness, if I have erred in writing to you.
I remain,
Your sincere friend


  1. You know Stalin and his jew Bolsheviks, SLAUGHTERED 100 MILLION non-jews? (This included Russians, Ukrainians, Poles, and after WWII, German civilians, Hungarians and Eastern Europeans. Gandhi should have written the letter to Stalin.

    WHY are 6 million jews more important than the 100 Million non -jews?

    BTW, Hitler, wrote 20 letters to Churchill suing for peace, and making concession after concession, but Churchill ignored them!

  2. Did the world "look on in horror" when Russia invaded Poland, invaded Finland, invaded the Baltics?
