Hitler’s Final Address to the German People

By Mike Walsh

Regardless of political persuasion logic suggests all should be familiar with the most important speech of the 20th Century. Yet, it is unlikely that 1/10,000 people have heard of it, let alone read it. This suggests there being good reason for these several additional blank pages in the victors’ history books.

It is a gross understatement to say that Adolf Hitler was the most influential man of the 20th Century. Like the Greek legends and their gods; Jesus Christ, Thermopylae or the Fall of Rome, Hitler’s presence on earth will impact throughout the ages. As did the Roman Tribune Rienzi, Adolf Hitler was consumed by the infernos of Berlin.

However, much to the dismay of his critics, phoenix-like and more shimmering and radiant than before, the former revolutionary inexorably rises from the ashes. A million tomes of acidic water poured on the Hitler legend by the victors propagandists fail to douse the embers.

It is interesting to note that Hitler firmly believed in the resurrection of his spirit. In his final address he refers to his ‘spirit living on and his companions remaining as close to him after his mortal death.’

Dawn was yet to break over the smoke-filled capital when Germany’s elected Chancellor and President, the Fuhrer, made his address: Here it is for possibly the first time in 72 years.


“Since 1914, when as a volunteer, I made my modest contribution in the World War which was forced upon the Reich, over thirty years have passed.

In these three decades, only love for my people and loyalty to my people has guided me in all my thoughts, actions, and life. They gave me the strength to make the most difficult decisions, such as no mortal has yet had to face. I have exhausted my time, my working energy, and my health in these three decades.

It is untrue that I or anybody else in Germany wanted war in 1939. It was desired and instigated exclusively by those international statesmen who were either of Jewish origin or working for Jewish interests.

I have made so many offers for the reduction and elimination of armaments, which posterity cannot explain away for all eternity, that the responsibility for the outbreak of this war cannot rest on me.

Furthermore, I never desired that after the first terrible World War a second war should arise against England or even against America. Centuries may pass, but out of the ruins of our cities and monuments of art there will arise anew the hatred for the people who alone are ultimately responsible: International Jewry and its helpers!

As late as three days before the outbreak of the German-Polish War, I proposed to the British Ambassador in Berlin a solution for the German-Polish problem, similar to the problem of the Saar area, under international control.

This offer cannot be explained away, either. It was only rejected because the responsible circles in English politics wanted the war, partly in the expectation of business advantages, partly driven by propaganda promoted by international Jewry.

But I left no doubt about the fact that if the peoples of Europe were again only regarded as so many packages of stock shares by these international money and finance conspirators, then that race, too, which is the truly guilty party in this murderous struggle would also have to be held to account: the Jews!

I further left no doubt that this time we would not permit millions of European children of Aryan descent to die of hunger, nor millions of grown-up men to suffer death, nor hundreds of thousands of women and children to be burned and bombed to death in their cities, without the truly guilty party having to atone for its guilt, even if through more humane means.

After six years of struggle, which in spite of all reverses will go down in history as the most glorious and most courageous manifestation of a people’s will to live, I cannot separate myself from the city which is the capital of this Reich.

Because our forces are too few to permit any further resistance against the enemy’s assaults, and because individual resistance is rendered valueless by blinded and characterless scoundrels, I desire to share the fate that millions of others have taken upon themselves, in that I shall remain in this city. Furthermore, I do not want to fall into the hands of enemies who for the delectation of the hate-riddled masses require a new spectacle promoted by the Jews.

I have therefore resolved to remain in Berlin and there to choose death of my own will at the very moment when, as I believe, the seat of the Fuehrer and Chancellor can no longer be defended.

I die with a joyful heart in the awareness the immeasurable deeds and achievements of our soldiers at the front, of our women at home, the achievements of our peasants and workers, and the contribution, unique in history, of our youth, which bears my name.

It goes without saying that I thank them all from the bottom of my heart and that it is also my desire that in spite of everything they should not give up the struggle, but continue fighting wherever they may be, faithful to the great Clausewitz, against the enemies of the Fatherland.

From the sacrifices of our soldiers and from my own comradeship with them, there will come in one way or another into German history the seed of a brilliant renaissance of the National Socialist movement and thus the realization of a true national community.

Many very brave men and women have resolved to link their lives to mine to the very end. I have requested them, and finally ordered them, not to do so, but instead to take part in the continuing struggle of the nation.

I ask the commanders of the army, navy, and air force to strengthen by all possible means the spirit of resistance of our soldiers in the spirit of National Socialism, emphasizing especially that I too, as founder and creator of this movement, have preferred death to cowardly flight or even capitulation.

May it be one day a part of the code of honour; as it is already in the navy, that the surrender of an area or of a town is impossible, and above all in this respect the leaders should give a shining example of faithful devotion to duty unto death.

Several brave men have joined me by their own free will and do not wish to leave the capital of the Reich under any circumstances, but on the contrary are willing to perish with me here. Yet I must ask them to obey my request, and in this instance place the interests of the nation above their own feelings.

Through their work and loyalty they will remain just as close to me as companions after my death, just as I hope that my spirit will remain amongst them and will always accompany them. Let them be hard, but never unjust; above all, let them never allow fear to counsel their actions, but may they place the honour of the nation above everything on this earth.

Finally, may they be conscious of the fact that our task of building a National Socialist state represents the labour of the coming centuries, and this places every single person under an obligation always to serve the common interest and to subordinate his own interests. I demand of all Germans, all National Socialists, men and women and all soldiers of the Armed Forces, that they remain faithful and obedient to the new government and to their President unto death.

Above all, I charge the leadership of the nation and their followers with the strict observance of the racial laws and with merciless resistance against the universal poisoners of all peoples, international Jewry.”

~ Reich President and Chancellor Adolf Hitler, Berlin, 29 April 1945, 4 AM. (Note; scores of similar revelations plus illustrations in ODYSSEY ADOLF HITLER).

With Hitler on the Road to Power – by Dr. Otto Dietrich

DOWNLOAD IN PDF FORMAT

This is the first fully-digitized edition of the original translation of this book, published in the Third Reich before the WWII.

Written by Adolf Hitler’s chief of press in 1934, this book details the three tumultuous election campaign years from 1930 through to the coming to power of the NSDAP in January 1933. The author formed part of Hitler’s inner circle and campaign staff during this period – which included six full elections in two-and-a-half years-and later went on to become the chancellor’s personal press officer. Starting with a short backgrounder of the growth of the National Socialist party, Dietrich then springs into a vivid description of the exhausting and intense electoral campaigns. Many fascinating details are included, such as Hitler’s hectic speaking schedule, and his ground-breaking – and sometimes highly dangerous-innovation of flying to meetings up and down the country. Hitler’s schedule, Dietrich recalled, was so intense that his entourage had trouble keeping up with him.

Adolf Hitler-speech in the Lustgarten – 01.05.1937

(With abridgements)

Berlin, May 1, 1937

The problems of our life are worse than those of other peoples. Perhaps there are peoples who can afford the luxury of waging war at home, of wrangling and bashing each other’s heads in. Where Nature has given human beings everything in abundance, they will perhaps accord less importance to the necessity of uniform action and thus of a uniform will. Yet Nature has not been very kind to us Germans here on earth. A great Volk, an infinitely competent Volk, an industrious Volk, a Volk who has a will to live and a right to make demands on life, is living in a space much too tight and too confined to possibly provide to it everything it needs, even given the greatest diligence. When we sometimes hear foreign politicians say, “Why do you need a further, broader scope for life?” we might respond by asking them in turn, “Then why do you place such great emphasis on it?” It is for the very reason that our life-struggle is so much more difficult than elsewhere that we must draw specific conclusions from this fact which constitutes our fate. We cannot exist on phrases, cliches and theories, but only on the fruits of our labour, our ability and our intelligence.

[…]

For at the fore of our National Socialist economic leadership stands not the word “theory,” nor the word “money,” nor “capital,” but the word “production.” Believe me, my Volksgenossen: it requires more brain-work, more effort and more concentration to draw up and implement a Four-Year Plan to secure for our Volk the requisite vital goods for the future than to start up the rotary press to print more paper money.

It is very easy to stride before the public and say, “We’re raising salaries, earnings and wages”-and then tomorrow we shall raise prices. And it is very easy to say, “We’ll shorten working hours-that means output-and raise wages instead.” That may be popular at the moment. But the collapse is inevitable, for the individual does not live on a paper wage but on the total sum of the production of his Volksgenossen. That is the foremost precept of National Socialist economic policy.

[…]

Life itself puts every generation under an obligation to wage its own battle for that life. Yet what centuries of prejudice and irrationality have built up cannot be completely eliminated within four years’ time. Everything cannot be accomplished at once! But we have the will to master this problem and, armed with this will, we shall never capitulate! And we are applying ourselves thoroughly to our task; you will have to admit that. In these four years, we have established order; we have ensured that it is not the undeserving who walk off with the wages in the end, but the millions comprising the upright working masses in the cities and the countryside who are able to gain their just reward! In Germany we have truly broken with the world of prejudices. I may regard myself as an exception. I, too, am a child of this Volk, and did not issue from some palace; I come from the work site. Neither was I a general; I was a soldier like millions of others. It is a miraculous thing that, here in our country, an unknown man was able to step forth from the army of millions of German people, German workers and soldiers, to stand at the fore of the Reich and the nation! Next to me stand German people from every class of life who today are part of the nation’s leadership: former agricultural workers who are now Reichsstatthalters; former metalworkers who are today Gauleiters, etc. Though, mind you, former members of the bourgeoisie and former aristocrats also have their place in this Movement. To us it makes no difference where they come from; what counts is that they are able to work for the benefit of our Volk. That is what matters.

[…]

For subordinating oneself is something every person must do. We, too, subordinated ourselves. For nearly six years I was a soldier and never voiced a contradiction, but instead simply obeyed orders at all times. Today Fate has made me the one who gives orders.

And this I must demand of every German: you, too, must be able to obey; otherwise you will never be deserving or worthy of giving orders yourself! That is the prerequisite! It is thus we shall train our Volk and pass over the stubbornness or stupidity of the individual: bend or break-one or the other! We cannot tolerate that this authority, which is the authority of the German Volk, be attacked from any other quarter.

This also applies to all the Churches. As long as they concern themselves with their religious problems, the State will not concern itself with them. If they attempt, however, to presume by virtue of any actions, letters, encyclicals, etc. to claim rights which accrue solely to the State, we will force them back into their right and proper spiritual-pastoral activities. Nor is it acceptable to criticize the morality of a state from that quarter when they have more than enough reason to call their own morality into question?108 The German leadership of state will take care of the morality of the German State and Volk – of that we can assure all those concerned both within and without Germany.

[…]

Hence this May Day is the illustrious holiday of the resurrection109 of the German Volk from its disunity and its fragmentation. It is the illustrious day of the erection of a new and great Volksgemeinschaft that unites city and country, workers, peasants and intellectuals above and beyond any divisions, allowing the Reich to stand as sole presider over all in full panoply.

What is, therefore, more logical than for us to again wholeheartedly pledge ourselves to our Volk on this day of all days? We cannot renew this pledge often enough: that we wish to belong to this Volk, that we wish to serve it and will endeavour to understand one another; that we wish to overcome all that divides us and thus defeat the stupid doubters, the mockers and the incessant little cavillers; that today above all we wish to renew our faith in our Volk, our confidence that it is a marvellous, competent, industrious, and decent Volk, and that this Volk shall have its future because we are the ones responsible for that future!

On the Subject of Adolf Hitler

Source: http://nationalvanguard.org/2017/04/on-the-subject-of-adolf-hitler/

On the 128th anniversary of his birth, today we offer some seldom-seen statements made regarding Adolf Hitler, the first great leader of National Socialism.

“I SHOULD LIKE to put it on record that I have never been able to dislike Adolf Hitler… The fact is that there is something deeply appealing about him… the face of a man suffering under intolerable wrongs… He is the martyr, the victim, Prometheus chained to the rock, the self-sacrificing hero who fights single-handed against impossible odds… One feels, as with Napoleon, that he is fighting against destiny, that he can’t win, and yet that he somehow deserves to.” – George Orwell, British writer

“Hitler is the man of my life. The German dictator had been an ideal leader who dedicated his life to the realization of his noble ambition. He never lived for himself but for Germany and the German people. I have always wished to live like him.” – Dr. Noureddine Tarraf, Egyptian Minister of Health in the 1950s

“A man of peace… one of the most sincere, honest and open men I have ever spoken to.” – Victor Ridder, American publisher

“Words are too poor to express what we owe this man, who is a symbol of the best of what the world has produced. We can only celebrate him as the God-sent rescuer of Europe.” – Per Engdahl, Swedish author

“I’m not worthy to speak up for Adolf Hitler, and his life and deeds do not invite sentimental rousing. Hitler was a warrior, a warrior for humankind and a preacher of the gospel of justice for all nations. He was a reforming character of the highest order, and his historical fate was that he functioned in a time of unequalled brutality, which in the end felled him. Thus may the ordinary Western European look at Adolf Hitler. And we, his close followers, bow our heads at his death….” – Knut Hamsun, leading Norwegian author, written (at great risk) upon the death of Hitler in 1945

“My dear Hitler… I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart. Even if you appear to have been defeated, in reality you are the victor.” – Muhammad Anwar El Sadat, third President of Egypt

“A man who within the space of four years has raised his people from the very lowest depths to self-consciousness, pride, discipline, and power deserves the gratitude of his fellow citizens and the admiration of mankind.” – Sven Hedin, Swedish explorer and author

‘I have never seen a happier people than the Germans. Hitler is one of the greatest men I have ever met…. Yes, Heil Hitler. I, too, say that — because he is truly a great man.” – Lloyd George, former British Prime Minister

“Hitler is always present before my eyes: as a man of peace in 1936, as a man of war in 1944. It is not possible to have been a personal witness to the life of such an extraordinary man without being marked by it forever. Not a day goes by but Hitler rises again in my memory, not as a man long dead, but as a real being who paces his office floor, seats himself in his chair, pokes the burning logs in the fireplace…. After 1945 Hitler was accused of every cruelty, but it was not in his nature to be cruel. He loved children. It was an entirely natural thing for him to stop his car and share his food with young cyclists along the road. Once he gave his raincoat to a derelict plodding in the rain. At midnight he would interrupt his work and prepare the food for his dog Blondi. He could not eat meat, because it meant the death of a living creature….” – Léon Degrelle, Belgian leader

“My sizing up of the man [Hitler] as I sat and talked with him was that he is really one who truly loves his fellow man, and his country, and would make any sacrifice for their good. He is a man of deep sincerity and a genuine patriot. As I talked with him, I could not but think of Joan of Arc. The world will yet come to see a very great man. He is distinctly a mystic…” – Mackenzie King, Prime Minister of Canada

“I think that he [Adolf Hitler] is primarily a dreamer, a visionary. His mind, nurtured by the other-worldness of the Alpine scenery round his mountain retreat of Berchtesgaden, runs to visions; and I have heard his intimates say that, even in cabinet meetings when vital questions of policy are being discussed, he is dreaming — thinking of the light that never was on sea or land, the consecration and the poet’s dream. …He is so transparently honest when he is weaving visions of his own creation that nobody can doubt him. He is ready, like a medieval saint, to go through fire and water for his beliefs… He sees himself as a crusader; he thinks the whole time of saving mankind. That is why he reaches such a stage of mystical exaltation when he talks about saving the world from Bolshevism. It is the old Siegfried complex once again. Just as the young German knight of old went out into the dim, dark forests to kill dragons, so he goes out to exterminate Bolshevism.” – Sir Stephen Henry Roberts, Australian author and academic

“Hitler is a very great man, like an inspired religious leader, and as such rather fanatical, but not scheming, not selfish, not greedy for power, but a mystic, a visionary who really wants the best for his country.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh, American author

“He once said: ‘I wish nothing on my gravestone other than my name.’ Even his name will probably not stand over his grave, for we know that he must have perished while fighting bitterly in the Reich Chancellery. We know that the enemy will be able to find a body in the ruins caused by countless artillery shells and flame throwers, and that they may say that it is the Führer’s body, but we will not believe it. If the enemy says that, we will not believe it. That his body is dead we believe, what is mortal of him has perished, has passed away, but he has fulfilled his most beautiful oath, this affirmation: ‘The most valuable thing God has given me on this world is my people. My faith rests on it, I serve it with my will, and I give my life to it.’ His life is fulfilled. He began by fighting for his people, and he ended that way. A life of battle.” – Hermann Okraß, German writer, published at great personal risk in the Hamburger Zeitung of May 2, 1945

“We painted Hitler as a monster, a devil. And that’s why we could not move away from that portrayal after the war. We had mobilized the masses against the devil incarnate. And so we were forced to continue in this satanic scenario after the war. We could not possibly have explained to our people that the war had actually been only a preventative economic measure.” – James Addison Baker, US Secretary of State

“Hitler is endless proof of God’s love and blessing for which we ever must be grateful.” – Gertrud Scholtz-Klink, leader of the National Socialist Women’s League

“[T]he greatest man in history, whose name was Adolf Hitler. …He was the greatest White man who ever lived and the greatest leader that the White race ever had. He has influenced not only our lives, but the whole world.” – Ben Klassen, American religious leader

“He [Adolf Hitler] has a supreme intellect. I have known only two other men to whom I could apply such distinction — Lord Northcliffe and Lloyd George. If one puts a question to Hitler, he gives an immediate, brilliant, clear answer. There is no human being living whose promise on important matters I would trust more readily. He believes that Germany has a Divine calling and that the German people are destined to save Europe from the revolutionary attacks of Communism. He values family life very highly, whereas Communism is its worst enemy. He has thoroughly cleansed the moral, ethical life of Germany. …No words can describe his politeness; he disarms men as well as women and can win both at any time with his conciliatory, pleasant smile. He is a man of rare culture. His knowledge of music, the arts, and architecture is profound.” – Harold Sidney Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Rothermere, British newspaper editor and writer

Faust, the Ninth Symphony, and the will of Adolf Hitler are eternally young and know neither time nor transience.” – Baldur von Schirach, National Socialist leader

“There is no question but that Hitler belongs in the category of the truly mystic medicine man. As somebody commented about him at the last Nürnberg party congress, since the time of Mohammed nothing like it has been seen in the world. …The outstanding characteristic of his physiognomy is its dreamy look. I was especially struck by that when I saw pictures taken of him in the Czechoslovakian crisis; there was in his eyes the look of a seer. …Hitler is a medicine man, a spiritual vessel, a demi-deity or, even better, a myth.” – Carl Jung, Swiss psychologist and philosopher

“What will count in the long run in determining Adolf Hitler’s stature is not whether he lost or won the war but whether it was he or his adversaries who were on the side of the Life Force, whether it was he or they who served the cause of Truth and human progress. We only have to look around us today to know it was not they.” – Dr. William L. Pierce, founder of the National Alliance and National Vanguard

Adolf Hitler: The Ultimate Collection of Speeches – 3 Hours of Hitler Speeches

By History clips

Most of these speeches here are pre-war (as most during war don’t have footage) and have video footage, I have replaced footage with better quality one’s where possible including colour segments, some speeches may seem more patchy because of this (but the speeches in remastered colour are gold, can’t wait for the day where we can view a full speech in this quality (just look at the segment at 1:23:46 and imagine if we could see the whole thing in colour).

Most footage can be found from archives or 8-year-old YouTube channels which got them from god knows where. I am certain there are full footage reels somewhere out there, in the Bundesarchiv or otherwise but the way these were made is that they filmed them only for small 2 minute “news reel” type thingies to show in cinemas, which of course back then wasn’t that common, hence why you’ll also see numerous cameras and camera angles in these speeches yet none of them for more than 10 seconds, I would love to see a full speech with all these full camera angles one day, but that isn’t today.

Some videos don’t have subtitles as they are rare and I can’t find a translation anywhere, if you could provide a translation that would be much appreciated.

Some of these speeches can also be found in full, albeit mostly without footage, at the YouTube channel “intjewrywonww2” and the 1933 Sportpalast speech can be found on this channel.

New in V2 – More colour segments (most notably in the April 1933 Sportpalast speech), longer segments of previous speeches and added new speeches such as Graz, Vienna, Rheinmetall-Borsig works and added more oddities (small clips and undated).
