The following text is from a series of pictures from World War II that represent Hitler's Germany and were presumably produced by his propaganda department. I've done my best to transcribe the text. However, my lack of any knowledge of the German language combined with the somewhat difficult font used has led me to commit errors in the process. A scanned image of the text may be found here.
