Hitler Youth HandbookThe foundation of the National Socialist worldview is the knowledge of human inequality. No one will likelydisagree with this as long as we stick to physical appearance. It is obvious that the "red skins," the "yellow people," the Negroes and the whites are very different. And all whites are not the same. The careful observer can find differences in physical size and shape. The color of the eyes, hair, and skin also varies greatly.But there are also spiritual differences between people. That is particularly clear when various people speak about a particular subject. For one person, work is a "curse," "God's punishment," a burden that one should remove as rapidly as possible. For the other, it is a necessary part of existence that gives human life its meaning. For one, bravery and loyalty are nothing but great stupidity. He would rather be "a coward for a few minutes" than to "be dead for the rest of one's life." For another, bravery and loyalty are the characteristics used to value and esteem people. He holds to his word, in good times or ill. He cannot live without honor, and would rather die than be a coward.People differ therefore in more than their physical characteristics. Just as deep, and with no way of bridging the gap, is the differences in spirit and soul. Body, spirit, and soul together make up the whole person, since they form a unified whole. Their inner relationships must therefore be studied. Then we will clearly recognize the vast difference between those of German blood and the Jews, although their physical characteristics might otherwise suggest that they were both members of the same human grouping. We then understand human inequality. We act according to this understanding.How are German youth taught racial views? How might this affect their worldview?They are taught that there are differences between races, and their spirits. They’re being taught to associate race with a certain spirit. They are being taught that all peopleare not equal.Hitler Proclamation - 1939
And one more thing I would like now to state on this day memorable perhaps not only for us Germans. I have often been a prophet in my life and was generally laughed at. During my struggle for power, the Jews primarily received with laughter my propheciesthat I would someday assume the leadership of the state and thereby of the entire nation and then, among many other things, achieve a solution of the Jewish problem. Isuppose that meanwhile the laughter of Jewry in Germany that resounded then is probably already choking in their throats. Today I want to be a prophet again. If international finance Jewry within Europe and abroad should succeed once more in plunging the peoples into a world war, then the consequence will be not the Bolshevization of the world and therewith a victory of Jewry, but on the contrary, the destruction of the Jewish race in Europe.
