Hitler Tells New Military Recruits that Military Service Means Longer Life

Adolf Hitler, 1936

Adolf Hitler gives a speech on "Wehrmacht Day" to a gathering of new conscripts for the German military in which he tells them that a person without faith is committing a sin against life itself.

According to Hitler

"Every fault can be overcome, and its manifestations are easier to eliminate than pessimism and its consequences. Let him beware who has no faith. He is committing a sin against the meaning of life as a whole. He is of no use for anything, and his existence will be nothing but a burden to his Volk."

Hitler also tells them that by serving in the military, they will enjoy a longer life; in reality, they will be among the first thrown into war and have exceptionally short life expectancies.
