Film | Accession Number: 1991.260.1 | RG Number: RG-60.0292 | Film ID: 202A

von Papen reads a prepared speech to camera after the Reparations Conference at Lausanne, during which German reparation payments were officially suspended due to the financial crisis and worldwide economic depression.

Portion of speech (transcribed by researcher): "Deutschland Schicksal ist das Schicksal der Welt; deutsche Not ist die Not der Welt; der Wohlstand der einzelnen Nation is der Wohlstand der Gesamheit. Die Arbeit der verantwortlichen Staatsmanner in Lausanne muss den Weg frei machen zur eine positive Zusammenarbeit die uns allein einer besseren Zukunft entgegenfuhren kann."
[Translation: "Germany's fate is the fate of the world. Germany's plight is the plight of the world."]
