		"One year ago, we met for the first time

		review of the political leaders of the 
		National Socialist Party. Now 200,000 men 
		have been assembled; summoned not by 
		their mere hearts but also their fidelity. 
		It is our nation's greatest misery that 
		moved us, united us in struggle, and made 
		us fight strong, and all of those who 
		have not suffered with me the very same 
		misery and suffering among their own 
		people cannot comprehend what we feel. To 
		them, it is confusing and
		incomprehensible that this assembly would 
		bring hundreds of thousands together and 
		make them endure great misery, suffering 
		and privation as a simple order of the 
		State. They can only think that such a 
		thing could only be possible at the 
		command order of the State. They are 
		gravely mistaken. It is not the State 
		that orders us; but it is we who order 
		the State! ...

				HITLER
		... But the Movement is alive and stands 
		firmly as a rock as long as one of us can 
		still breathe life into it, just as in 
		the many years past. Then drum will join 
		drum, banner will join banner, group will
		join group, district will join district, 
		and then, at last, the once divided 
		people will then follow the gigantic 
		column of a united Reich! ...
			(applause)
 
237.	CLOSE ANGLES OF the ornamental decorations in the area: the massed 
	decorations of swastika banner and eagle motifs; then:
 
238. 	CLOSE AT HITLER AGAIN:
 
				HITLER
		... It would be a crime if we ever gave 
		up what had been fought for and won so 
		much strife, sorrow and sacrifice, and 
		distress. One cannot be disloyal to 
		something that has given content, 
		meaning and purpose to one's entire life. 
		All of this would not be possible were it 
		not given to us by a great command and it 
		is God Himself who created our Reich! ...

		deceived who might believe that even one 
		single smudge occurred in the foundations 
		of our unified Movement. It stands firm 
		as a rock just as this assembly today 
		stands firm as a rock, as we in Germany 
		stand, unbroken. And if anyone sins

		... Only a lunatic or a deliberate liar 
		could think that I or anyone would ever 
		have the sole intention to dissolve what
		we ourselves have built up after so many 
		long years and that I would never disband 
		an organization. No, comrades, we stand 
		firmly by Germany and we have to stand 
		behind her. I now give you the new 
		banners, convinced that I am handing them 
		over to the most loyal and faithful hands 
		in all of Germany. In the past, you have 
		proved your loyalty to me a thousandfold, 
		and it cannot and will not be any 
		different in the future. And so I greet

		the SS! Sieg Heil!"

		Socialist. 
			(applause)

		wanted, therefore to be the sole power in 
		Germany. ...

337. 	FULL ANGLE AT AUDIENCE, cheering; then: 

338. 	CLOSE-UP BACK AT HITLER:

		greater numbers have joined this 
		leadership and subordinated themselves. 
			(applause) 
		The German people are happy in the 
		knowledge that the constantly changing 
		leadership has now been replaced by a 
		fixed pole; a force which considers 
		itself the representative of the best 
		blood, and, knowing this, has elevated 
		themselves to the leadership of this 
		Nation and is determined to keep this 
		leadership, to use it to the best 
		advantage and never to relinquish it 
		again. ...
			(applause)
