Esther's Prophecy

10 Sons of Haman
10 Sons of Hitler

Hitler Was born on Holy Saturday - between Good Friday - and the Jewish Sabbath, the holiest day of the people he would seek to destroy, like his forebear Haman in the book of Esther.

The Book of Esther records how Haman's ten sons were hanged in Shushan. An eleventh child, a daughter, committed suicide earlier, according to an account in the Talmud.

At Nuremberg, eleven men were condemned to execution by hanging, only ten were actually hanged. The eleventh, Goering, committed suicide earlier, he crushed a hidden cyanide capsule between his teeth.


Noted by the late Belzer Rebbe [1]. In scrolls of the Book of Esther, the names of Haman ten sons are displayed unusually prominent. Written in a highly unusual configuration of dual parallel columns with three letters in the list written very small, and one very large, following an unexplained halachic tradition.

The large letter is the Hebrew character for the number six (In the Hebrew alphabet all letters have numeric values. The sum of the small letters is 707. If the large letter is taken to refer to the millennium and 707 to the year in the millennium, something amazing emerges.

The year 5707, the 707th year in the sixth millennium, was the year 1946, when ten sworn enemies of the Jewish people were hanged in Nuremberg, just as ten others had been in Shushan over 2,000 years earlier.

The Book of Esther, (9:13), moreover, refers to the hanging of Haman's sons in a future tense, after the event had occurred, it speaks of a hanging of 10 sons yet to occur.

5 The Jews struck down all their enemies with the sword, killing and destroying them, and they did what they pleased to those who hated them. 6 In the citadel of Susa, the Jews killed and destroyed five hundred men. 7 They also killed Parshandatha, Dalphon, Aspatha, 8 Poratha, Adalia, Aridatha, 9 Parmashta, Arisai, Aridai and Vaizatha, 10 the ten sons of Haman son of Hammedatha, the enemy of the Jews. But they did not lay their hands on the plunder.

11 The number of those slain in the citadel of Susa was reported to the king that same day. 12 The king said to Queen Esther, "The Jews have killed and destroyed five hundred men and the ten sons of Haman in the citadel of Susa. What have they done in the rest of the king's provinces? Now what is your petition? It will be given you. What is your request? It will also be granted."

13 "If it pleases the king," Esther answered, "give the Jews in Susa permission to carry out this day's edict tomorrow also, and let Haman's ten sons be hanged on gallows."
