I am the same as 1 ever was, whatever the emigrant PrC "I have always' said that the word'capitulation does not exist in our dictionary'. I do not want the fight but when it is forced upon me Twill conduct it as long as a.single breath is alive in me And l can lead this fight because I know the entire German people stand behind-me. (Applause) I am today the guardian of the future life ot the German people. ' "I have taken this endless work knowing it has to be done. My life my -health; do not matter. I know the German army, man foi man officer and officer/stand behind me in this -spirit, "This is a struggle for the future, not for the present. 1 have said that economic difficulties will never force us down. The attitude of the German people guarantees this possibility. The rich reward lie:, Irr the future. "You will have to recognize me as your guarantor, l am one of you and if this struggle is finished 1 will face the new tasks of building the German nation." He spoke of increased national unity and cooperation after the wai - "We are determined to build a social state which will be an exam- j pie in every respect and that will be our final- victory," he said. "Look t at the others.. What did they get out of their victory in the World War? They used it only for their dumned' plutocracy. Look what 'they'got out of it: Unemployment and poverty. That .should be a le.s- son "When'we will have won the victory we will stop the manufacture of cannons and will begin the work of peace. Then wo will .show the world what the master is and who the nuu;ter is—capital or work. , And ihen out ol this work timl greater German Reich will arise of which a great poet dreamed. It. will be a Germany which every -son will love tanaiiealiy. But if; one says this is a dream of the future, just my hope,'then I answer that when I started on the road as sin unknown .soldier I had to build the greatest future with the greatest hope. It had been realized. What 1 just predicted is nothing compared to what lies already behind me. The road from soldier to leader of the nation was certainly harder than the way from leader to the formation cjf the hoped-for peace, UN? great Reich of peace-work-welfare and culture. We'will build! I thank you..." Hitler ended his speech and a great burst of applause swept over .the hall. 11 l!
