Mistress’ diary: Mussolini was fierce “anti-Semite”

Fascist Italian dictator vowed to destroy all Jews, called Adolf Hitler a ‘softy’, a recently published diary of Mussolini’s mistress claims

Benito Mussolini was a fierce anti-Semite, who proudly said that his hatred for Jews preceded Adolf Hitler’s and vowed to “destroy them all,” according to previously unpublished diaries by the Fascist dictator’s longtime mistress.

According to the diaries, Mussolini also talked about the warm reception he received from Hitler at the 1938 Munich conference – he called the German leader a “softy” – and attacked Pope Pius XI for his criticism of Nazism and Fascism.
