It was my dream, and probably the dream of every one of us, to bring about a revision of the Versailles Treaty by peaceful means, which was provided for in that very treaty.— Hans Frank
The most fascinating Hans Frank quotes that are simple and will have a huge impact on you
On 24 August 1939, as an officer in the reserve, I had to join my regiment in Potsdam.
I did not care for Wagner. My tastes are more classical. Der Fuhrer had no musical taste and liked Wagner because of the bombastic Teutonic glories.
I ask nothing of the Jews except that they should disappear.
In 1930 I became a member of the Reichstag.
Gentlemen, I must ask you to rid yourselves of all feeling of pity.
We must annihilate the Jews wherever we find them and wherever it is possible in order to maintain there the structure of the Reich as a whole.
Concentration camps were entirely a matter for the police and had nothing to do with the administration.
I can tell you a graphic difference. In Prague, for example, big red posters were put up on which could be read that seven Czechs had been shot today. I said to myself: If I put up a poster for every seven Poles shot, the forests of Poland would not be sufficient to manufacture the paper for such posters.
I tried to commit suicide because I sacrificed everything for Hitler.
And that man whom we sacrificed everything for left us all alone. If he had committed suicide four years before, it would have been all right.
It doesn't matter whether I'm judged criminal.
I have a great feeling of guilt - I have a feeling that I ran after Hitler like a wildfire without reason. If I can sacrifice my life to make something good, I'd gladly do it.
I am thankful for the kind treatment during my captivity and I ask God to accept me with mercy.
I never participated in far-reaching political decisions, since I never belonged to the circle of the closest associates of Adolf Hitler, neither was I consulted by Adolf Hitler on general political questions, nor did I ever take part in conferences about such problems.
My first endeavor was to save the core of the German system of justice: the independent judiciary.
Ninety percent of the members of the Academy of German Law were not members of the Party.
First, I was Bavarian State Minister of Justice, and after the ministries of justice in the various states were dissolved I became Reich Minister without portfolio.
My aim was to safeguard justice, without doing harm to our war effort.
A thousand years will pass and the guilt of Germany will not be erased.
I dealt with legal questions in the interest of Adolf Hitler and the NSDAP and its members during the difficult years of struggle for the victory of the Movement.
Both Einstein and Freud were clever in leaving Germany, because both of them would doubtlessly have been caught by Himmler and murdered.
The police officers, so far as discipline, organization, pay, and orders were concerned, came exclusively under the German Reich police system and were in no way connected with the administration of the Government General.
Death by hanging... I deserved it and I expected it, as I've always told you. I am glad that I have had the chance to defend myself and to think things over in the last few months.
It was also my idea that the advisory committees of the Academy should replace the legal committees of the German Reichstag, which was gradually fading into the background in the Reich.
In the main the Academy helped to frame only laws of an economic or social nature, since owing to the development of the totalitarian regime it became more and more impossible to cooperate in other spheres.
In my own sphere I did everything that could possibly be expected of a man who believes in the greatness of his people and who is filled with fanaticism for the greatness of his country, in order to bring about the victory of Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist movement.
The SS, as such, behaved no more criminally than any other social groups would behave when taking part in political events.
Ah! American cigarettes are like the American soul - sweet and light.
Even in art, there is no light without shadows, and no shadows are cast without some light. Even the shadow of Adolf Hitler is accompanied by some light.
I did not destroy the 43 volumes of my diary, which report on all these events and the share I had in them; but of my own accord I handed them voluntarily to the officers of the American Army who arrested me.
Hitler is lonely. So is God. Hitler is like God.
War is not a thing one wants.
I worked as a lawyer; as a member of the teaching staff of a technical college; and then I worked principally as legal adviser to Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers Party.
An administration without a police executive is powerless and there were many proofs of this.
