Abstract This document is a compilation of translated excerpts taken from the speeches of Rudolf Hess. The excerpts echo some standard points of Nazism, i.e., the Fuehrer's infallibility and divine mandate, Germany's need of a strong military, the decadence of parliamentary democracy, and so forth. Also present is a one-sentence excerpt from Rosenberg's "Der Mythos des 20 Jahrhunderts" ("The Myth of the Twentieth Century"). This document is a typewritten copy on very brown and brittle paper.
