Hitlerís Speech before the Youth Rally

 

Prelude    (41:30)

 

Introduction:      (44:30)

My leader, my comrades: Again, we experience this time that makes us proud and happy.  Under your orders, my leader, our youth stands here before you, a youth which knows no classes or castes.  You are the true example for our younger generation.  As you selflessly work for this nation, so this youth wants to be selfless.  As you are loyal to us, so we will be loyal to you. 

 

Adolf Hitler, the leader of the German youth, has the floor:

 

Hitlerís Speech:               (41:00)

My German youth, after a year, I can greet you here again.  You are here today in this place, a cross section of what is around us in the whole of Germany.  We know that you German boys and girls are taking on everything we hope for from Germany.  We want to be one people, and you, my youth, are to be this people.  We want to see no more class divisions: you must not let this grow up amongst you. 

 

We want to see one nation one day, and you must train for it. 

        We want our people to be obedient, and you must practice obedience. 

        We want our people to love peace, but also to be brave.  You must be peace-loving and so you must be peace-loving and courageous at the same time. 

        We want our people to remain strong.  It will be hard, and you must steel yourselves for it in your youth.  You must learn to suffer privation without crumbling once. 

Whatever we create today, whatever we do, we will die, but Germany will live on in you.  When there is nothing left of us, then you must hold in your fists the flags that we hoisted out of nothing.  I know this cannot be otherwise because you are the flesh of our flesh, and the blood of our blood.  In your young heads burns the same spirit that rules us.  You cannot be other than united with us.  When the great columns of our movement march triumphantly through Germany today, I know you will join the columns.  We know before us Germany lies, in us Germany burns, and behind us Germany follows.
