626 HITLER ATTENDS WEDDINGS and hypocrisy walk arm in arm; both must be extirpated. The uselessness of the parson is nowhere better illustrated than here at the front. Here we have enemies who are dying by the million—and without a single one of these liars. The Catholic Church has but one desire, and that is to see us destroyed. When Eckart was in Landsberg, the prison parson came and said to him: "Eckart, if anything should happen to you— which God forbid!—have you given a serious thought to the future?" "I have given the question of the Hereafter much more serious consideration than ever you have done, my good sir," replied Eckart. "And if the Hereafter is in reality what you believe it to be, then, take it from me, I can be of more help to you than you can be to me!" Dripping hypocrisy with the swift and poisoned arrow behind it! 288 12th August 1942, midday Marriage customs—German Nationalists in 1921—Admiral Schröder—The Marines. I have never attended a wedding which was conducted with becoming solemnity. Marriage is a holy act, the binding into one of two human beings of different sex; less moving, perhaps, for a man than for a woman, but still a most solemn occasion. And what do most of the guests do but make pointed jokes at the expense of the bride and bridegroom! I attended one wedding—that of Thiersch—at which every guest made a short and suggestive speech ; and this was regarded as the height of wit! I wonder why it is? As regards superficiality, we are as children in comparison with the British. It is quite astonishing how trumpery trash and good taste exist cheek by jowl in Britain. I once had a book on British masterpieces of architecture—and what magnificent conceptions it contained ! In London the Government buildings may be redolent with history, but history is made in the great castles of the countryside. The National Club in Berlin ! I was taken there one day in 1921 by Gansser. The people had absolutely no idea whatsoever of how the German problem should be solved. One of the
THE I92I PROGRAMME 627 good gentlemen told me solemnly that all Germany's hopes rested on Kahr ! The further away from Bavaria one went the greater the stature that Kahr seemed to acquire in the people's eye ! And in a nonentity like that they placed their hopes of salvation! It was there that I met the old Admiral Schröder, our first supporter. Next day I went to the Officers' Club in the Pariser Platz. Of them all, it was Schröder who made the best impression on me. A grand old bull of a man, charged with energy! My 1921-22 programme had filled most citizens with consternation. They were even terrified lest people should know they had even heard of it ! The purging of all foreign elements in Germany, introduction of compulsory military service, re-constitution of the German Army, abolition of the freedom of the press, suppression of provincial governments ! Good heavens ! Such ideas were pure blasphemy! People swore solemn oaths that they had never lent an ear to such things ! But old Schröder, that most energetic of men, that uncompromising fanatic, accepted the whole thing without further ado. He was to the Navy what Lützow was to the Army. Hutier, too, was a national figure, and a fine one at that! But he had, I think, a tiny streak of the Catholic in him. When I discover a man like Schröder, I grab him at once. Schröder had already retired, when, during the war, he received the order to join up and raise corps of Marines. What we accomplish to-day is child's play in comparison with the efforts we were called upon to make then. Schröder had absolutely nothing! But in no time he was leading his corps to battle. I myself saw these Marines in action for the first time at the battle of the Somme ; and compared with them, we felt we were the rawest of recruits. We then received orders to march to Ostend for a test. The Regiment arrived there in a most deplorable state. Any Russian regiment, after a five-hundred-mile retreat, would have looked like the Brigade of Guards in comparison. While in Ostend I had the chance of going for a short trip on a submarine, and the sailors, smart, efficient, turned out always as if for a review, were magnificent! It made one ashamed to be seen in their company.
