Hitler, Opening Nazi Congress, Hails Racial “revolution”

CHANCELLOR HITLER TODAY HAILED “RACIAL HYGIENE” AS NATIONAL SOCIALISM’S “GREATEST REVOLUTION” IN A PROCLAMATION OPENING THE NINTH ANNUAL CONGRESS OF THE NAZI PARTY, ACCORDING TO THE HAVAS NEWS AGENCY.

HITLER’S STATEMENT, READ BY ADOLF WAGNER, NAZI LEADER BAVARIA, DENOUNCED COMMUNISM AND DECLARED THAT THE BOLSHEVIKS WERE SUBSTITUTING A RACE OF “JEWISH PARASITES” AFTER ELIMINATING REAL “INTELLECTUAL NATIONALS.”

JULIUS STREICHER, ANTI-SEMITIC LEADER, PROVOKED A SENSATION BY TELLING THE CONGRESS THAT 1937 FOUND GERMANY ON THE ROAD TO PERDITION. A MOMENT OF STUNNED SILENCE FOLLOWED THE STATEMENT AND HE HASTILY CORRECTED HIMSELF, DECLARING THAT IT WAS IN 1927 THAT GERMANY WAS HEADED TOWARD RUIN.

SPEAKING OF THE RACIAL “REVOLUTION,” HITLER SAID: “THE RESULTS OF THIS RACIAL POLICY WILL BE MORE DECISIVE FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR PEOPLE THAN ANY OTHER MEASURES WE HAVE TAKEN,” THE CHANCELLOR DECLARED. “IN OTHER DOMAINS ANY ERROR COULD HAVE BEEN CORRECTED BUT IN RACE HYGIENE–PURITY OF BLOOD–IF IT HAD BEEN NEGLECTED COULD NEVER HAVE BEEN REPAIRED.”

HE POINTED TO THE MILLIONS OF BOYS AND GIRLS BEING EDUCATED AND MADE STRONG IN THE HITLER YOUTH ORGANIZATIONS AND DECLARED THE NAZI RACIAL PROGRAM WAS “A TRUE RESURRECTION OF A NATION BY THE METHODICAL CREATION OF A NEW MAN.”

“IN THE FIFTH YEAR OF THE NATIONAL SOCIALIST REVOLUTION,” HITLER CONCLUDED, “WE CAN RECALL NOTHING BETTER THAN THE FACT THAT IT IS AGAIN GOOD TO BE A GERMAN AND IT IS GOOD TO LIVE IN GERMANY.

“LONG LIVE THE GERMAN PEOPLE, THE NATIONAL SOCIALIST MOVEMENT, THE NATIONAL SOCIALIST ARMY AND OUR GERMANY!”
