Abstract This document is a compilation of excerpts from Hitler's speeches in which he reiterates his intention to abrogate the Treaty of Versailles; obtain "living space" (Lebensraum) for the German people; and rearm the German Army for the purpose of waging war; and an excerpt from Goebbels, in which he argues for State licensing of newspapers - in effect, for Nazi censorship of the German press. This document is a typewritten copy.
