For two thousand years the Germanleopard has not changed his spots.The Nazi system of today is only a new form of an olddisease. For as long as there have been Germans there havebeen Nazis.All through the centuries Germans have dreamed Hitlersdreams. The foreigner was well aware that the Germanswere a nation of dreamers, but his interpretation of theirdreams was a false one. Those who follow dreamshethoughtsnatch at the wind. But it was not the wind atwhich the Germans snatched it was not at shadows that theygrasped. They snatched at mastery they reached out for theterritory of their neighbours and while the Germans proceeded to realize their dreams, other peoples slept the sleepof the just, until the words of the Psalmist were fulfilled:Many are the afflictions of the righteous.Like a stormcloud the Cimbri and Teutones burst uponGaul and Italy: a doud of three hundred thousand warriors,No one knew whence they came. Strong Roman forces weresubmerged. The feeble opposition encouraged the invadersto march upon Rome. In all the countries through whichthey had passed they had been victorious, and they hadeverywhere loaded themselves with booty. ThereuponsoTacitus recordsthey resolved that they would call no haltuntil they had destroyed Rome and devastated Italy.The Cimbri pushed forward to the north of the Alps theTeutones marched along the coast, through Liguria. At lastthey appeared before the Roman encampment. They roaredand bellowed in a strange, unintelligible tongue, and theirmultitudes filled the plain. But Marius, in command of theRoman legions, let the savages rage and shriek in front ofhis camp. In small detachments he set his men upon therampart, whence they could observe the enemy. So he accustomed them to the sight of these hostile figures, with theirstrangely savage and alien voices, their unfamiliar weapons,their unexpected movements.
