UNITING DANZIG WITH GERMANY
My Gauleiter! My dear fellow-countrymen and fellow-countrywomen of Danzig!
You are not alone in experiencing this moment with the deepest emotion; the
whole German nation is experiencing it too. I myself am conscious of the greatness of this hour.
For the first time I am treading upon soil of which German settlers had taken possession five hundred years before the first white men settled in what is today New York State. It is thus five hundred years longer that this soil was German, had remained German and will—of this we may all be convinced—remain German.
