Does anyone have a link to the full text of the 1 September 1933 speech?

The source is Wolfgang Wippermann: Drittes Reich. In: Wolfgang Benz et al. (Hrsg.): Enzyklopädie des Nationalsozialismus, p. 479.

Which one?
Hitler gave a speech on that day at the opening of Kulturtagung.
Another one, AH opening address of party congress was read out by Adolf Wagner.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Where in any of those links does Hitler state that the Third Reich would last a thousand years?

Hi Lamark
You asked
Does anyone have a link to the full text of the 1 September 1933 speech?

The first two are links to speeches [or excepts of speeches] made on the 1st September 1933.
I agree that they do not refer to a "thousand year Reich" and ,as I stated, are for interest only.

The third link may indeed refer to the thousand year Reich , but, as you will see the text is very hard to read.


Cheers

Is this useful?
I intend to set up a thousand-year Reich and anyone who supports me in this battle is a fellow-fighter for a unique spiritual-I would say divine-creation... Rudolf Hess, my assistant of many years standing, would tell you: If we have such a leader, God is with us.

"So verkündete Adolf Hitler am 1. September 1933 offiziell, dass der von ihm geführte Staat ein „Drittes Reich“ sei, das „tausend Jahre“ dauern werde."

Hi Guys,

Invoking a "thousand years" has a poor track record.

In 1940 Churchill said of the RAF in the Battle of Britain "If the British Empire lasts a thousand years, men will still say, "this was their Finest Hour"."

Ian Smith in Rhodesia said that "never in a thousand years" would the country have black majority rule.

The 3rd Reich lasted 12 years longer, the British began to give up their empire seven years after Churchill spoke and Rhodesia had black majority rule within 15 years.

So, on average, Hitler's, Churchill's and Smith's "thousand years" seem to have lasted a little over 11 years, or about 0.1% of their intended span!

Sid.

P.S. Any other contenders for the "Thousand Year Epic Fail Club"?

And my all time favourite: “Gebt mir zehn Jahre Zeit, und ihr werdet Deutschland nicht wiedererkennen!” - “Give me ten years and you won’t recognize Germany.”

As it would turn out, a very accurate prediction.
