'After The War
Let us suppose for a few mo
rrients—and ohly"a few moments
that... Germany conie, out on
top in' the present conflict. What
then would-life in post-war Ger
many be dike? Would Nazi-ruled
peoples experience an era of pros
perity and peace? Do Hitler and
Goering „think or even hope' that
such - would be the case?.
fProbably the most nearly cor
rect answer_ to these questions iS
that no one knows, but Reichs
fuehrer Hitler's ' latest release . to
the press of the world contains
statements which may give a hint
, or two answering "After the vial.
Tuesday, the .Nazi.Fuehrer• an
nounced a.-mass production -hous
ing,. scheme which is to assure in
the future . "the healthy life of
families rich in children." The pro
ject is supposed to be carried out
in the ten years following the war.
Such -a -scheme will be necessary,
German authorities state, because
.each German family is to have at
leß.st four children, "as in the days
of Frederich the Great."
; So far, Hitler's plan sounds- al
most praiseworthy, -but paragraphs
farther along in the news story
-tell-a different story. Herr Hitler
"The successful end of this war
Will face the German Reich with
tasks that it can master only with
an increase of - its population - . It is
necessary, therefore, that a rise in
the *birth rate shall fill 'the gaps
in population which the war took
as its toll."
• Germany's leader may have
• meant •otherwise, but doesn't this
sound rather like the direct op—
posite of "I Didn't_ Raise My Boy
To Be A Soldier?" •
And then it seems that each new
Nazi-built home will -have the
latest in, air-raid shelters. Of
course a leader planning peaceful
lives for his countrymen could be
,designing such shelters merely as
high-quality fruit cellars; but, all
in all; it - would appear-that, when
this war is over, millions of Ger
man people • will have sacrificed
all for a leader who can see noth
_the future but more war.
