we do not pardon, we demand – vengeance!

We want to call to account the November Criminals of 1918. It cannot be that two million Germans should have fallen in vain and that afterwards one should sit down as friends at the same table with traitors. No, we do not pardon, we demand – vengeance! The dishonouring of the nation must cease. For betrayers of the Fatherland and informers, the gallows is the proper place…”

Hitler 18.9.22, speech in the Zirkus Krone, in A. Bullock, Hitler, Penguin, p.88
