Dietrich Eckart befriended Adolf Hitler in 1919 and introduced him to völkisch ideas through his seething anti-Semitic smear sheet Auf gut Deutsch (In Plain German). In 1919 Eckart outlined his idea of the furture savior of Germany, insisting, amongst other things, that he 'must be bachelor'. Hitler's disgusting chapter on syphillis in Mein Kampf, in which he displayed an almost pathological hatred of women, was inspired by this unpleasant character. Hitler ended Mein Kampf with a dedication to him and later named of the massive Olympic complex in Berlin after him.
