For this year's Heroes' Day celebration in Germany, Karl Dönitz tells the German people that they are far better off united under Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party than they would be in a democratic state that is split up by different political parties and factions.

From Doenitz's address:

"German men and women! ... What would have become of our country today, if the Fuehrer had not united us under National Socialism!

Split into parties, beset with the spreading poison of Jewry and vulnerable to it, and lacking, as a defense, our present uncompromising ideology, we would long since have succumbed to the burdens of this war and been subject to the merciless destruction of our adversaries. "

It's quite possible that more than a few Germans listening to this were thinking that if it hadn't been for Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, they might not be involved in so many wars in the first place.
