This is a page of the SS-Leitheft magazine from 1944. After historical reflections encompassing the Second Schleswig War and the First World War, the author talks of shared ancestry and ends with a stark assertion of even greater import today than seventy years ago.

The European peoples have only one choice if they want to survive: to recognize what they have in common and to defend it.
