A few articles from IHR I stumbled upon, the first one has several interesting quotes from non-German experts of the time

And Revived Germany’s Economy

Here is an interesting segment from a British documentary regarding the "Economic Miracle" of National Socialist Germany. I have transcribed the audio below the video. I am not sure what documentary this is taken front.



Narrator: There was to be no more industrial conflict. Trade unions were banned and all workers  had to join the Nazi labour front. In the depression unemployment had reached thirty percent. Now industry revived as Hitler set the target of the rearming Germany and giving every German worker a job. The party looked for support in every factory.

Narrator: In town and country

Narrator: Help went to the farmers, many driven bankrupt in the depression. And to get their commitment they were swept into demonstrations bringing party and people together.

Narrator: Harvest festival was staged as a mass occasion, a mix of new ideas and revived old customs.

“The thousands of people you can see all around were farmers, young people from all over Germany. We travelled in special trains, and then marched for hours to get as close to the front as possible. I was right at the front. We all felt the same, the same happiness and joy. Harvest festival was the thank you for us farmers having a future again. Things were looking up. I believe no statesmen had ever been as loved as Adolf Hitler was then. It’s all coming flooding back to me; those were happy times.” - Luise Essig (Agriculture Ministry 1937-1945 (videotaped interview in German))

Narrator: To give work to the unemployed Hitler launched huge public spending schemes. Two and a half miles of Autobahn were announced, linking major cities.

“The new German road network is the biggest in the world. People abroad can write silly articles full of lies. People who come to Germany will say “Good God! Why did we believe that Jewish rubbish? It’s not at all like that here!” – Adolf Hitler (videotaped speech in German)

“I was one of the first radio reporters to drive on the Autobahn. There were thousands and thousands of people watching with great excitement. Of course, I reported that it was a great achievement which we shall be proud of and which would be repeated.” – Horst Slesina (Propaganda Ministry 1934-1945 (videotaped interview in German))

Narrator: In the propaganda the road builders were held up as an example of National Socialist action.

“We’re building bridges like you’ve never seen before.” Said one German bridge builder. “What we’re building is reliable.” Said another. (German bridge builders (Nazi-era film interview))

Some half-truth. But it misses out on some important key elements. The money/banking system comes to mind.

For the record, it is a segment from this documentary if context is needed viewing before and after the segment: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Nazis ... om_History

I am almost certain we can get even better footage on this on the net. Lots of this has been released and one can find it at unlikely places.
