Addressing a group of senior officers, Adolf Hitler tells them that they should not allow themselves to feel anything positive towards their enemy.
"We must forget the concept of comradeship between soldiers. A Communist is no comrade before or after the battle. This is a war of annihilation. ...
We are not waging war in order to conserve the enemy ... war against Russia requires the extermination of the Bolshevik Commissars and the Communist intelligentsia."
