Quotes
Narrator: In the Middle Ages, a plague of slavery descended on the world. Out of the wilds of Mongolia came a mighty army of fierce horsemen, led by Genghis Khan. Burning, looting, pillaging, the barbarian horde swept across Asia and Eastern Europe. Genghis Khan conquered most of the world of the thirteenth century. Adolf Hitler was determined to outdo him, and conquer all the world of the twentieth.

Narrator: The symbols and the leaders change, but Germany's maniacal urge to impose its will on others continues from generation to generation.

Winston Churchill: What tragedies, what horrors, what crimes has Hitler and all that Hitler stands for brought upon Europe and the world! It is upon this foundation that Hitler pretends to build out of hatred a new order for Europe. But nothing is more certain than that every trace of Hitler's footsteps, every stain of his infected and corroding fingers will be sponged and purged and, if need be, blasted from the surface of the earth. Lift up your hearts, all will come right. Out of the depths of sorrow and of sacrifice will be born again the glory of mankind.
