Dr. Robert Ley, Reichsorganisationsleiter and DAF Reichsleiter explains how the German people under the guidance of Adolf Hitler went from being an unimportant country to a force to be reckoned with by 1940, when this book was published by Verlag der deutschen Arbeitsfront in Berlin. The title of this 5-3/4 x 8 inch 36 page, heavily illustrated soft cover book translates literally as “From Proletarians to Gentlemen”, in this case reflecting on the evolution of Germany and its population as a world power as a result of National Socialist leadership and ideology.In this historical publication, Dr. Robert Ley, who also wrote parts of the Nazi Party Testament Ich Kämpfe and was the publisher of Der Schulungsbrief (The Party Directive) magazine, explains the three main social changes of the 19th century that created lingering problems in 20th century Germany:1) Not enough space for the population to grow, to produce food: not enoughLebensraum - and a people without space for development are easy prey for Jews and Marxists.2) Technical and industrial improvements created a need for more factory workers in large cities. Those workers had to leave their Heimat (home land) and lost their identity doing impersonal jobs.Adolf HitlerDr. Ley said that technical improvements and industrialization created freedom and pride but also a class-conscious Germany with Jews in the shadows becoming ever more emancipated. National Socialism made the German People realize the changes and take responsibility. They were reminded by inspirational publications like this one that Germans were of a high intellectual and productive capacity, and must not mix with lower races and dilute their value.The German race has given the world much more than it has ever received in return and therefore it has a right to be proud of its achievements (Wagner, Beethoven, Goethe and Schopenhauer are contrasted with Jews with names like Fritz Katzenellebogen, S. Fisher, Walter Rathenau and Jakob Goldschmidt).German superiority, its responsibilities and Hitler and the National Socialists changed Germany- made it healthy again, a classless country with Jews no longer part of society.Adolf Hitler cleared the road for an important Germany of racially pure people who created and produced at the highest, most powerful level. A country liberated from 19th century smallness and narrow-mindedness that is now a worldly country, an important country that needs to be taken into account by the whole world.By repeating over and over again what is important, the Nazis have created a country of racially pure, responsible workers full of drive and energy. The German people are worthy again. Before Hitler they were burdened by class wars and prejudice. Hitler brought down the dividing walls and German horizons have widened.Never has so much changed in Germany in only seven years. Germany took control of most of western Europe. Germany went from an unimportant, looked down-upon country to a world power with Europe laying at its feet. Jews and negroes (England and France) were defeated. Eighty million Germans now have rights and are a force to be reckoned with. “Our Soldiers have opened the gates in Poland, Norway, Flanders and France and even England will never be able to close them again!” From proletarians to gentlemen, from narrow-mindedness to the whole world! All thanks to Adolf Hitler, Our Führer!
