Note 031
by Joachim C. Fest

31 The unspeakable quotation that celebrates the thunder of cannon at Sedan not only as an expression of artistic value but also as being on a par with eine Kleine Nachtmusik comes from the Reich Theatrical Controller Rainer Schlosser, who was incidentally one of the chief lecturers in Rosenberg's Reich Centre for the Advancement of German Literature (see Note 34), probably the most important control and censorship authority. On this whole complex see Dietrich Strothmann's excellent work, Nationalsozialistische Literaturpolitik, where the quotations are to be found.

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