German pedestrians read a giant poster of Goering's "Nine Commandments for the Workers' Struggle," that has been affixed to a pillar in central Berlin. The text of the Goering plan reads:

1. For everyone: A job for everyone and everyone in his job.
2. To the German youth: Take a shovel in hand and go out into the land!
3. To the German woman: Take hold of the cooking pan, dust pan and broom and marry a man.
4. To the working man: Take on any job that comes your way; only this will give you and the people back its strength.
5. To women with professions: You cannot be happy in a profession when your proper place is in the home.
6. To the union leaders: A pessimist takes his own bread and that of the others; an optimist overcomes the depression.
7. To our women at home: Do not take time from your children and your husband, accept the help of a maid.
8. To the farmers: The more difficult the state makes it, the more that must be cultivated.
9. To the civil servant: [unreadable]
Everyone in everything: Just take on a bit [of work].
