Note 020
by Joachim C. Fest

20 Rosenberg, Politisches Tagebuch. While Rosenberg in the foreword of this book objects to the description 'catechism', this is precisely what this thesis-like recapitulation of National Socialist philosophy is. Moreover, the phrase about the re-placement of the rosary by the spade of the worker already appears in a modified form in Der Mythus des 20. Jahrhunderts. There, to be sure, it is the war monuments which replace 'the frightful baroque and rococo crucifixes which display distorted limbs at every street corner'.

From Chapter 13, Alfred Rosenberg , Part 3 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
