The publication of the Black Notebooks has understandably forced Heidegger specialists to confront the issue of the philosopher’s anti-Semitism. It shouldn’t come however as a great surprise that a convinced Nazi also had anti-Semitic leanings and fell prey to the massive anti-Semitic propaganda of the Nazis. This paper focuses on the astonishingly early critique of Being and time that Heidegger unfolded in his first Notebooks, dating back to 1931. They teach us what happened to the project of Being and Time in the 30s and how Heidegger came to his new thinking of the history of Being in his Contributions to Philosophy. The continuity of Heidegger’s thinking between 1927 and his thinking about the history of Being thus becomes more visible.
