October 17th 1917 - Hindenburg tells people to endure during the First World War


(O-Ton) All the exhortations to hold out by the German High Command, could not bring about a victory in 1917 – the volunteer Adolf Hitler also knew this. At the latest upon the U.S. entry into the war in 1917, the German Empire was militarily inferior to the Allies. At home, living conditions had deteriorated dramatically. Hunger and misery ruled. Despite the strict rationing of food the assigned amounts were often far from sufficient. Time and again there were riots due to hunger. People demanded bread and peace. In September 1918 the Supreme Command under the two Generals Paul von Hindenburg and Erich Ludendorff admitted defeat. From the imperial government they demanded immediate ceasefire negotiations as well as the formation of a new parliamentary government.
