|A Call to All Germans!
The war is approaching its destined end. As in the year 1918, the German government is trying to focus
attention exclusively on the growing threat of submarine warfare, while in the East the armies are
constantly in retreat and invasion in imminent in the West. Mobilization in the United States has not yet
reached its climax, but already it exceeds anything that the world has ever seen. It has become a
mathematical certainty that Hitler is leading the German people into the abyss. Hitler cannot win the war;
he can only prolong it. The guilt of Hitler and his minions goes beyond all measure. Retribution comes
closer and closer.
But what are the German people doing? They will not see and will not listen. Blindly they follow their
seducers into ruin. Victory at any price! is inscribed on their banner. "I will fight to the last man," says
Hitler-but in the meantime the war has already been lost.
Germans! Do you and your children want to suffer the same fate that befell the Jews? Do you want to be
judged by the same standards are your traducers? Are we to be forever a nation which is hated and
rejected by all mankind? No. Dissociate yourselves from National Socialist gangsterism. Prove by your
deeds that you think otherwise. A new war of liberation is about to begin. The better part of the nation will
fight on our side. Cast off the cloak of indifference you have wrapped around you. Make the decision
before it is too late. Do not believe the National Socialist propaganda which has driven the fear of
Bolshevism into your bones. Do not believe that Germany's welfare is linked to the victory of national
Socialism for good or ill. A criminal regime cannot achieve a German victory. Separate yourselves in time
from everything connected with National Socialism. In the aftermath a terrible but just judgment will be
meted out to those who stayed in hiding, who were cowardly and hesitant.
What can we learn from the outcome of this war-this war that never was a national war?
The imperialist ideology of force, from whatever side it comes, must be shattered for all time. A one sided
Prussian militarism must never again be allowed to assume power. Only in large-scale cooperation
among the nations of Europe can the ground be prepared for reconstruction. Centralized hegemony, such
as the Prussian state has tried to exercise in Germany and in Europe, must be cut down at its inception.
The Germany of the future must be a federal state. At this juncture only a sound federal system can imbue
a weakened Europe with a new life. The workers must be liberated from their condition of down trodden
slavery under National Socialism. The illusory structure of autonomous national industry must disappear.
Every nation and each man have a right to the goods of the whole world!
Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the protection of individual citizens from the arbitrary will of
criminal regimes of violence-these will be the bases of the New Europe.
Support the resistance. Distribute the leaflets!
