Austrian's address to Utrecht rally on subject of New Europe 1943
Europe will only be saved if she becomes one unit. This idea is at once revolutionary and conservative: the great deeds and spiritual achievements of Northern European peoples (Medieval spirituality; Humanism in the Renaissance) will be pulled together in the union of Germanic peoples. New European order will be based on the same principles, although it will not be achieved immediately. At present Europe's future is being shaped on the Eastern Front. Principles of the Germanic Union of Europe - each people to have the freedom to live in its own way; each people to have duty to devote all to defence of common territory. This does not mean freedom to live according to the desires of individuals (an unrealistic bourgeois notion which devides a people); the decisive factor is a racial one. Therefore to live "in own way" need to eradicate influence of foreign races. Why have the Germans entered Holland (and Scandanavia)? If these peoples were themselves determined to ensure the freedom of their lands, the Germans would be happy to let them work on their own. Germany does not want a crushed Europe, but one united for the good of the people. Further reason for German presence in Holland: prevention of Anglo-American advance. Holland is unable to defend herself. Hitler foresaw US desire to attack Germany; if Germans were to wait for the English to take over Dutch air bases it would be too late. Therefore the brutal determination of the English and the Americans to advance over Dutch corpses into Germany is to blame. Why does the German occupation "meddle" with civilian affairs? Total War is the answer. The point, where there is no difference between the military and the civil, has been reached.
