When I hear the word culture ..., I release the safety on my Browning!

Post by DavidFrankenberg » 10 Apr 2019 22:28

This famous sentence was first written by the german writer Hanns Johst in his piece Leo Schalgeter in 1933.

Some say Göring, Goebbels, or Schirach repeated the sentence.

There is a famous movie that shows Schirach pronouncing these words. But indeed, the movie was produced by Goebbels, and Schirach was not Schirach but an actor playin Schirach...


Anyone know more about that sentence and its use by Third Reich figures ?

There used to be a thread devoted to this quote, but it now seems to be missing [Didn't survive the recent upgrade ??]
