Newly published letters to his brother show a Heidegger falling for the kind of conspiracy theories that today are found on the websites of the lunatic fringe:

/// Das rechte Minderheitskabinett unter Reichskanzler Franz von Papen, das mithilfe von Reichspräsident Hindenburg zwischen Juni und Dezember 1932 regierte, wird von Heidegger als jüdische Verschwörung kommentiert. Er beklagt, wie sich die Juden "allmählich aus der Panikstimmung befreiten, in die sie geraten waren. Dass den Juden ein solches Manöver wie die Papenepisode gelungen ist, zeigt eben, wie schwer es auf jeden Fall sein wird, gegen alles, was Großkapital und dergleichen Groß- ist, anzukommen." ///

Yes, after the release of the 'Schwarze Hefte" in 2014 there can be no illusions about the philosopher.
