Period Mottos / Slogans

Post by Phil V » 03 May 2004 12:32

Am compilling list of mottos / slogans used during Third Reich period.

Searching for any used in all area's of life, whether military or civlilian.

Information required is motto / slogan and where it originated / was used. Translation not a necessity.

I have many at present and am seeking to compile a comprehensive list.

Grateful for any information.

if you have collected a lot of them, I won´t bother you with household terms like "Räder müssen rollen für den Sieg".
But I found a funny one on a photograph of a teachers room in an austrian school:

Trittst du in die Stube ein
soll dein Gruß "Heil Hitler" sein.

(When you enter living room
you must greet "Heil Hitler" soon.)

well not a exact translation, but i wanted to catch the stupid rhyme.

Can you post your list of slogans?

Volksturm saying:

Auf zum heiligen Volkskrieg
für die deutsche heimat
und unsere Zukunft!

...and a more cynical one also from Volksturm:

Wir alten Affen,
sind die neuen Waffen. :P
