As I mentioned in a previous post, listen to the tones of the speeches. Then take into account in 1932, the politics of Germany. Lost a world war, the economy is in shambles and the previous leaders screwed everything up. Here comes this young group of leaders promising not only prosperity, but to make Germany a world power again.

1932-07-31 DRF Alfred Hugenberg DNVP – Rundfunkansprache zur Reichstagswahl
What is amazing is even though I don’t speak German, listen to the tone of the voices. It’s the same tone as the politicians use today.

Everyday there will be an episode from the KM99 WWII (the big one) collection. This is the finest collection of news broadcasts and events leading up to and including WWII. In the beginning, several of the broadcasts are in German. I do not speak German, but you can get a feel of what’s going on in these rallies by the tone of the voices. Hopefully everything will be available for download. The entire set is 13+ CD’s
