30 See Eugen Hadamovsky, quoted by Bracher, Sauer and Schulz, Die nationalsozialistische Machtergreifung. Alfred Rosenberg, in Blut und Ehre. Ein Kampf fur deutsche Wiedergeburt. Reden und Aufsätze von 1919-1933 (Munich, 1934), described Barlach's Magdeburg War Memorial thus:
'A mixed variety of short, undefinable sorts of people wearing semi-idiotic expressions and Soviet helmets are supposed to symbolize German home guards! I believe that every healthy SA man will pass the same judgement here as any conscious artist.'
And Goring, in a speech to Prussian theatre managers on 12th September 1933, quoted by Horkenbach, 1933:
'Every SA man who has taken part in protests against a 'Schweik' or similar play has more artistic sense than the administrator who brought the piece to the stage.'
