The Fuehrer, conscious of his responsibility, takes the fate of Europe into his hands (p. 78). The Fuehrer attempts a peaceful settlement of the eastern relations with Pilsudski (p. 78). The Fuehrer's policy toward the East was obliged, (1) to expel the internal Bolshevist danger, (2) to solve the western Slav problems, (3) to prevent Bolshevist attempts to influence other states in Europe, (4) to clear up the relationship to the USSR the source of all disturbances (p. 79). The Fuehrer's efforts for peace show again and again--The Fuehrer follows European policy (p. 81).

The Polish attitude finally brings about the WWII (p. 82). The Soviet Union moves closer to Europe (p. 84). The Soviet demands on Germany mean the overture of the attack on Europe (p. 85).
XI. National Socialist Germany Takes Over Again the Historical Task of Securing Europe Against the East.
The thought of safeguarding German and European territories against the dangers threatening from the East has run like a red thread through the Fuehrer's active policy ever since he took over the government.
Safeguarding of Europe! Europe is safeguarded but limited too, in the North, West, and South by military geographical conditions. From these directions no people was ever able to conquer and keep for long essential parts of the European soil. In the East, however, Europe lacks all natural protection; streams of foreign blood were flowing into the European space from the East through the Caspian plain. Thousands and thousands of Germanic families were annihilated in this eastern area because the motherland was not able or not willing to protect them. From now on Germany will no more abandon the safeguarding of Europe neither racially nor politically, neither in a military nor in an economic sense. The most valuable human races of Europe shall never again be spoiled by alien blood and ideologies of alien races. German energy will take care that all the sword has won will never again be lost in times of peace. For the accomplishment of this task, however, a saying of the Reichsfuehrer SS has to become true.
"It is our task not to Germanize the East in the old meaning that is to bring the German language and German laws to the people living there, but to take care that only people of genuine German, Germanic blood are living in the East."
