Adolf Hitler’s Address to the Reichstag (19 July 1940)
Once again the conspiracy of pitiful, corrupt political creatures and greedy financial magnates made its appearance, for whom war is a welcome means to bolster business.
The international Jewish poison of the peoples began to agitate against and to corrode healthy minds.
Men of letters set out to portray decent men who desired peace, calling them weaklings and traitors, to denounce opposition parties as a “Fifth Column”, in order to eliminate internal resistance to their criminal policy of war. Jews and Freemasons, armament industrialists and war profiteers, international traders and stock jobbers found political blackguards, desperados and glory seekers, who represent war as something to be yearned for, and hence wished for.
Believe me my deputies, I feel an inner disgust at this type of unscrupulous parliamentarian annihilators of peoples and states. It is almost painful to me to have been chosen by Providence to give a shove to what these men have brought to its knees.
It is not my ambition to wage wars, but to build up a new social state of the highest culture and every year of war takes me away from my work and the cause of this robbery is those ludicrous zeros whom one could, at best, call natures political run of the mill, insofar as their corrupted vileness, does not brand them as something out of the ordinary.
Mr. Churchill has repeated the declaration that he wants war.
About six weeks ago now, he launched this war in an arena, in which he apparently believes he is quite strong, namely in air war against the civilian population, beneath the deceptive slogan of a “War Against Military Objectives”. Ever since Freiburg, these objectives have turned out to be open cities, markets, villages, residential housing, hospitals, schools, kindergartens and whatever else they decide to hit.
Up to now, I have given little response to these attacks. This in not intended to signal, however, that this is the only response possible, or that it shall remain this way. I am fully aware that with our response, which will come, will also bring the nameless suffering and misfortune of many men.
Obviously this does not apply to Mr. Churchill himself, since by then he will surely be secure in Canada, where the money and the children of the most-distinguished of war profiteers have already been brought.
But there will be a great tragedy for millions of other men and Mr. Churchill should make an exception and place trust in me, when as a prophet I now proclaim. A great world empire will be destroyed, a world empire which I never had the ambition to destroy or as much as harm. I am fully aware that the continuation of this war will end only in the complete shattering of one of the two warring parties.
Mr. Churchill may believe this to be Germany. I know it to be England. In this hour, I feel compelled, standing before my conscience, to direct yet another appeal to reason in England. I believe I can do this, as I am not asking as the vanquished, but as the victor. I am speaking in the name of reason. I see no reason, which could force the continuation of this war.
I regret the sacrifices it will demand. I would like to spare my people. I know the hearts of millions of men and boys glow at the thought of finally being allowed to wage war against an enemy, who has, without a reasonable cause, declared war on us a second time. I also know of the women and mothers at home, whose hearts, despite their willingness to sacrifice to the last, hang onto the last with all their might.
Mr. Churchill may well belittle my declaration again, crying that it was nothing other than a symptom of my fear, or my doubts of the final victory. Still I will have an easy conscience of things to come. Deputies, men of the German Reichstag! In reflecting on the ten months lying behind us, all of us will surely feel overcome by the grace of Providence, which will allow us to accomplish such a great a task.
It has blessed our resolves and stood by us on many difficult paths.I myself am touched in recognition of the calling it imparted to me, to restore freedom and honor to my people. The disgrace we suffered for twenty-two years, and which had its beginnings in the Forest Of Compiegne, was erased forever at the very same site.
Today, I have named the men, who before history enabled me to accomplish this great task. They have done their best, dedicating their talents and their industry to the German people. I now wish to conclude in mentioning all those nameless men, who have no less done their duty. Millions of them have risked life and liberty and, as brave German officers and soldiers, have been ready at every hour to make the last sacrifice a man can make.
Today many of them rest in the same graves in which their fathers have rested since the Great War. They bear evidence to silent heroism. They stand as a symbol for all those hundreds of thousands of musketeers, anti-tank gunners and tank gunners, pioneers and artillery men, soldiers of the Navy and the Luffwaffe, men of the Waffen SS, and all those other fighters who stood for the German war machine, in the struggle for freedom and future of our people, and for the eternal greatness of the National Socialist Greater German Reich.
Germany, Sieg Heil…!!!
