  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.


    Shot of massive indoor Nazi rally. A banner above the arena reads: "Winterhilfswerk 1936-37". Winterhilfswerk was an annual drive by the Nazi party to provide food, clothing, coal and other items to poor German citizens during the harsh season of the winter. It ran from 1933–1945 during the months of October through March. Hitler used to inaugurate the program every year in October.

    Good SV of Adolf Hitler making speech. Cut aways to show audience - civilians and military.

    Shot of Dr Joseph Goebbels joining in the applause.

    The Fuhrer continues his oration (Hermann Goering is just visible in the background).

    Good SV of Goering and Goebbels.

    Hitler finishes his speech and the platform rise to their feet.

    The audience give the Nazi salute.

    Rough translation as follows:

    Es is wirklich etwas wunderbares, die Volksgemeinschaft so aufzumachen. Nicht in eine Vereinsrede von Volk und Brüder zu sprechen, sondern hineinzugehen in das Volk, all seine Vorurteile allmählich zu überwinden, um dann zu helfen und immer wieder zu helfen. Wenn dieses Volk und dieses Deutschland je zugrunde ginge, was würde dann der eigener Mensch sein. Was würde er auf dieser Welt noch für Bedeutung haben. In diesem Volk stehen wir, mit diesem Volk leben wir, mit ihm sind wir verbunden.… Dieses Volk zu erhalten ist unsere heilste und höchste Aufgabe…. Diese gewaltige soziale Arbeit, die ist mehr als ein Altmodus. Wenn wir sagen nicht den reichen gebt ihr den armen, sollen wir sagen Deutsches Volk hilft ihr selbst! Jeder soll helfen, ob arm oder reich, jeder soll sich denken es gibt ein der noch ärmer ist als ich, und dem will ich helfen - als Volksgenosse. Und ich erwarte von jedem Deutschen der ein … Charakter hat, das er in dieser Kolonne mitmarschiert.

    It really is a wonderful thing to be there for our ethnic community like this. Not to speak in an association speech of people and brothers, but to go into the people, to gradually overcome all their prejudices, to then help and help again and again. If this people and this Germany ever perished, what would a single human being be? What meaning would he still have in this world. We stand with this people, we live amongst this people, we are connected to them. ... To preserve this people is our most sacred and highest task .... This huge social work is more than just old fashioned. If we don't tell the rich you give to the poor, we should say German people help yourself! Everyone should help, whether rich or poor, everyone should think that there is one who is poorer than me, and I want to help - as a comrade. And I expect from every German who has a… character that he marches in this column.
