Hitlers speech to SA and SS
1933
"SA and SS, Heil!
The great time has now begun. Germany is
now awakened. We have won power in
Germany. Now we must win over the German
people.
I know, my comrades, it must have been
difficult at times, when you were desiring
change which didn't come, so time and time
again the appeal has to be made to continue
the struggle - you mustn't act yourself, you
must obey, you must give in, you must submit
to this overwhelming need to obey."
