Speech by SS-Obergruppenfuhrer Richard Darre – 1940
Richard Darre’s infamous speech made in 1940, detailed the fate of the British people, and makes chilling reading.
“As soon as we beat England we shall make an end of you Englishmen once and for all. Able- bodied men and women between the ages of 16 and 45 will be exported as slaves to the Continent. The old and weak will be exterminated.
All men remaining in Britain as slaves will be sterilised; a million or two of the young women of the Nordic type will be segregated in a number of stud farms where, with the assistance of picked German sires, during a period of 10 or 12 years, they will produce annually a series of Nordic infants to be brought up in every way as Germans.
These infants will form the future population of Britain. They will be partially educated in Germany and only those who fully satisfy the Nazi’s requirements will be allowed to return to Britain and take up permanent residence. The rest will be sterilised and sent to join slave gangs in Germany.
Thus, in a generation or two, the British will disappear.”
Richard Walter Darre (14 July 1895 – 5 September 1953)
SS-Obergruppenfuhrer and one of the Nazi leading ideologists. He was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina to a German father and half-Swedish, half-German mother. There exists nothing to indicate either of his parents were as fanatical about clinging to their ethnic heritage as the families of other top Nazis. This is not to say they were completely assimilative, but Darre’s personality allowed him to learn and gain fluency in four languages: English, Spanish, German, and French. He moved to Germany in the 1920’s and did not complete his PhD studies until 1929; at the comparatively old age of 34.
As soon as the Nazis had come to power, from June 1933 to May 1942 Darre served as the Reichsminister of Food and Agriculture, Director of the Reich and Settlement Office and Reich Peasant Leader. He played a leading part in setting up the SS Race and Resettlement Office, a fiercely racist, anti-Semitic organisation. He developed a plan for “Rasse und Raum” (race and space, or territory) which provided the ideological background for the Nazi expansive policy. Darre strongly influenced SS Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler in his goal to create a German racial aristocracy based on selective breeding. This policy led to the annihilation of millions of non-Germans until the end of the war. Darre was captured in 1945 and tried at the Subsequent Nuremberg Proceedings (the Ministry Case, 1947-49). Sentenced to five years in prison, he was released in 1950 and died in Munich on 5 September, 1953.
