Horror With Bronze Plaques


‘SS-Oberstormbannfürhrer Pfannenstiel asked: “What did the Führer say exactly?”

Globocnik: “Faster, the entire situation should be dealt with faster.”

Whereupon Dr. Herbert Linden from the ministry of the interior, who accompanied Hitler at the time, had asked: “Mister Globocnik, do you think it right to bury the bodies instead of burning them? We might be succeeded by a less tolerant generation who might be less understanding of all this.”

Globocnik: “Gentlemen, if ever a generation might succeed us that is so weak and feeble it fails to understand our great task, yes, in that case, national socialism in its entirety has been without any use. However, it is actually my opinion that with them we should bury bronze commemorative plaques to honour the courage we have shown in performing this grand and necessary work.”

Whereupon the Führer replied: “Right, Globocnik, that’s exactly what I think we should do.”‘
