Hitler Denies Plans to Annex Austria

Adolf Hitler, 1925

Adolf Hitler delivers a speech in which he assures the international community that he has no intention of annexing Austria.

According to Hitler:

"Germany neither intends nor wishes to interfere in inner-Austrian affairs or to effect an Austrian annexation or Anschluss. Born of a simple feeling of solidarity due to a common national origin, the German Volk and the German Government have, however, the understandable desire that not only alien peoples, but also the German Volk be guaranteed the right of self-determination everywhere.

I personally believe that any regime which is not anchored in the people, supported by the people and wanted by the people cannot endure for any length of time."
