Hitler Documents

On January 30, 1933, Hitler rose to power as Chancellor of the German Reich.

The main principles of the Nazi Party in Germany were expressed in its slogan “Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuehrer.” “Ein Volk” meant that all persons of German blood, wherever they might be, were connected by indissoluble ties to the German world family and these ties were more important than any political obligation. “Ein Reich” meant that Germans, where-ever they might be, were to look to Germany as their Homeland. “Ein Fuehrer” undoubtedly meant that Adolf Hitler was not only the Fuehrer of the German State, but of all persons of German blood throughout the world, regardless of their citizenship. The German-American Bund and all its units taught, not indirectly, this philosophy but, directly, as indicated by the voluminous testimony and the hundereds of exhibits that are in evidence.
