In Novemberthe Marxist organizations seized the executive power by means of a Revolution. The success of the revolution in a material sense protected these criminals from the grips of justice. They sought moral justification by asserting that Germany or its government bore the guilt for the outbreak of the War. This assertion was deliberately and objectively untrue.
If we follow our enemies' propaganda, then I must say that is to be compared with "Rejoicing towards Heaven, depressed until Death". The slightest success anywhere, and they literally turn somersaults in joy.
They have already destroyed us, and then the page turns and again they are cast down and depressed. I did not want to attack in the center, not only because Stalin knew I would. I provide one such example. If you read the Russian telegrams every day since June 22nd, they say the following each day: Or maybe of important character.
The amount of sunken tonnage is already greater than the entire naval tonnage, of all the German tonnage from before. But, above all, they are always fighting in the same place.
Always successful, we are constantly being beaten back. And in this continued retreat we have slowly come to the Caucasus. After a brief applause, Hitler resumes his speech and explains his reasoning for attacking Stalingrad. In his narrative, Hitler becomes almost comical, and suggests that the city of Stalingrad could have had another name from Stalin and this wasn't why he ordered his Army to attack.
The comment drew a round of laughter from the assembled audience. I should say that for our enemies, and not for your soldiers, that the speed at which our soldiers have now traversed territory is gigantic.
And what has transcribed this past year is vast and historically unique. Now, I do not always do things just as others want them done. I consider what the others probably believe and then do the opposite on principle.
So, if I did not want to attack in the center, not only because Mr. Stalin probably believed I would, but because I didn't care about it at all. But I wanted to come to the Volga, to a specific place and a specific city. It happened to have Stalin's name, but that's not why I went there.
It could have had another name. In the final segment of the speech, Hitler provides statistics for the strategic importance of Stalingrad and then proclaims that Germany now holds the city.
But, now this is a very important point. Because from here comes 30 millions tons of traffic, including about nine millions tons of oil shipments. From there the wheat pours in from these enormous territories of the Ukraine and from the Kuban region then to be transported north.
From here comes magnesium ore. A gigantic terminal is there and I wanted to take it. But, as you know, we are modest. That is to say that we have it now.
Only a few small pockets of resistance are left. Some would say "Why not fight onwards? I would rather hold this with small combat patrols!
Time does not matter, no ships are coming up the Volga! That is the important point. Media references[ edit ] The Hitler Stalingrad Speech is portrayed in the film Stalingrad where a group of embattled Wehrmacht soldiers, entrenched from positions within the city of Stalingrad itself, listen to Hitler while they are in turn surrounded by Soviet forces.
This speech is also featured in an episode of the miniseries "War and Remembrance," when Hitler was addressing party faithful. It occurred on the same day as the Allied invasion of North Africa.
