I Fight:

A Book for Members of the Nazi Party

The cover

The facing poem by Baldur von Schirach reads:

The greatest thing about him is that
He is not only our Führer and hero,
Rather it is he himself: frank, strong and simple;
The roots of our world are in him,
His soul reaches to the stars,
Yet he remains a person, just like you and me.
This memorial at the Hofbräuhaus in Munich commemorated the announcement of the Nazi Party platform (the 25 Points) in 1920.
The memorial at the Feldherrnhalle in Munich, where the police opened fire on Hitlerís putschists in 1923.
The two “Honor Temples” in Munich, where the sixteen who died in the 1923 putsch were buried after 1935.
