Adolf Hitler addresses the Reichstag in 1939

Deputies! Men of the German Reichstag!

When, six years ago this evening, tens of thousands of National Socialist fighters marched through the Brandenburg Gate to the light of their torches to express to me, who had just been appointed Chancellor of the Reich, their feeling of overwhelming joy and their vows as faithful followers countless anxious eyes all over Germany and in Berlin gazed upon the beginning of a development, the end of which still seemed unknown and unpredictable.

About 13 million Nazi voters were then behind me. A huge number - but only just over one third of all votes cast. Of course, the other 20 million was distributed and fragmented to approximately 35 other parties and factions. The only thing connecting them was common hatred against our young movement.

It united - as elsewhere still today - priests of the center and communist atheists, socialist demolishers of property and capitalist suitors of the stock market, monarchist advocates for the throne, and republican destroyers of the Reich.

They all had found each other in the long struggle of the national socialism for the leadership to defend their interests and were in cahoots with Jewry. The politicizing bishops of the various churches spread their blessing hands over it.

Opposite this only in the negative bonding fragmentation of the nation stood that third of faithful German men and women, who - against a world of internal and external opposition - embarked upon the recreation of the German Volk and Reich.

The overall picture of the size of the collapse at that time is beginning to fade.

But one thing remains unforgotten: It seemed that only a miracle in the twelfth hour could save Germany. We National Socialists believed in this miracle. Our opponents ridiculed our belief in it. The idea of redeeming the nation from a decline extending over fifteen years simply by the power of a new idea seemed to the non-National Socialists fantastic nonsense.

To the Jews and the other enemies of the State, however, it appeared to be the last flicker of the national power of resistance. And they felt that when it had disappeared, then they would be able to destroy not only Germany but all Europe as well. Had the German Reich sunk into Bolshevik chaos it would at that very moment have plunged the whole of Western civilization into a crisis of inconceivable magnitude. Only islanders with the most limited vision can imagine that the Red plague would have stopped of its own accord before the sacredness of the democratic idea or at the boundaries of disinterested States.

The rescue of Europe began at one end of the Continent with Mussolini and Fascism. National Socialism continued this rescue in another part of Europe and at the present moment we are witnessing in still a third country the same drama of a brave triumph over the Jewish international attempt to destroy European civilization.

Now, what are six years in the life of one man? What are they even in the lives of the peoples? One sees in such a short span of development little more than the symptoms of a general stagnation, a regression or a progress. But looking back, the last six years in Germany were filled with the most colossal events in German history.

On January 30, 1933, I moved into the Wilhelm Street filled with the deepest anxiety for the future of my people. Today, six years later, I am able to speak before the first Reichstag of Great Germany! We are, indeed, perhaps better able than other generations to realize the full meaning of those pious words: "What a change by the grace of God."

Six years is enough to fulfill the dream of centuries; one year to bring our people in the pleasure of that unity which was the unsuccessful aim of many generations.

As I today see you assembled before me as the representatives of our German people from all over the Reich and know that among you are the newly elected men of the Ostmark [Austria] and the Sudetenland I am once more overwhelmed by tremendous impressions of the events of a year which realized the dream of centuries.

How much blood has been shed in vain for this goal! How many million Germans have consciously or unconsciously trodden the bitter path to sudden or painful death for the sake of this ideal! How many others have been condemned to drag out behind the walls of fortresses and prisons lives they would gladly have given for Great Germany! How many hundreds of thousands have been scattered over the wide world by the endless stream of German emigration, driven by misery and want! For many a year they still think of their unfortunate homeland, but as generations go by they forget it. And now in a single year it has been possible to realize this dream.

Not without a fight, as unthinking citizens to maintain this might think. Prior to this year of German unification we had almost two decades of struggle for a fanatical political idea.

Hundreds of thousands and millions threw themselves into it, their physical and economic existence; they took ridicule just as willing as years of shameful treatment, pathetic slander, and unbearable terror. Numerous blood-covered dead and injured all over Germany are witnesses of the fight.

Paul von Hindenburg

Moreover, this success was won through an immense effort of will and by force of brave and fanatical endured decisions. I mention this because there is a chance that precisely those who had the least practical part in the success of Germany's unification, cheekily claim the act of creation of this Reich as their doing. Or they might view the events of the year 1938 as a long overdue but unfortunately delayed matter of course which was finally brought about by National Socialism.

To these elements I would like assure that the enforcement of this year took a nerve-force of which these goblins not even possess a hint! These are the well known old incorrigible pessimists, skeptics, or apathetics, which were always absent as positive elements in all of our twenty years of struggle, but who now - after the victory - think they have to deliver their critical comments as called experts of the national exaltation.

I will now in a few sentences give you the facts of the historical events of the memorable year 1938. Among the fourteen points which President Wilson promised Germany in the name of all the Allies as the basis on which a new world peace was to be established when Germany laid down her arms was the fundamental principle of the self-determination of peoples. The proclamation of this principle might have been of fundamental importance. Actually during the following period the Allied Powers of the day also applied these theories when they could make them serve their own selfish purposes. Thus they refuse to return Germany's colonial possessions, alleging that it would be wrong to return the native inhabitants of the colonies to Germany against their will.

But, of course, in 1918 no one took the trouble to find out what their will was. But while the Allies thus upheld the right of self-determination for primitive Negro tribes, they refused in 1918 to grant to a highly civilized nation like the Germans the rights of man which had previously been solemnly promised to them. All efforts to bring about a change in the situation to normal methods of reasonable revision have hitherto failed, and are bound to fail in the future, in view of the well-known attitude of the Versailles powers. Indeed, all the articles dealing with revision in the Covenant of the League of Nations had only a platonic significance.
