Aussenpolitisches Amt der Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei
- Aussenpolitisches Amt
Founded in 1934
Hitler actively encouraged the creation of party agencies which claimed expertise in certain fields of foreign policy. The Aussenpolitisches Amt der Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei was established to institutionalize Alfred Rosenberg's aspirations to become the guru of Nazi foreign policy. This body also put pressure on German allies to carry out the Final Solution. For example, its diplomats exhorted Benito Mussolini, unsuccessfully, to deport Jews under Italian jurisdiction.
Founded in Germany.
