Hitler’s speech to the youth WW2

“It was incredible,” Laurie was saying about the class. “Everyone was saluting and repeating the motto. You couldn’t help but get caught up in it. You know, really wanting to make it work. Feeling all that energy building around you.”

Laure was expressing something many German people, including the youth of Germany, felt when listening to Adolf Hitler.

Here is the text of a speech he gave to the youth during WW2 followed by a link to the actual speech. When watching it look at the reactions of the young people and remember the scene in The Wave movie when the class was chanting the slogan with Mr Ross. That was when laurie thought the whole thing was getting creepy.

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!
