The Giftpilz - The Poisonous Mushroom

How worker Hartmann became a National Socialist – From The children’s book Giftpilz (The Poison Mushroom)

The Jew cries: We don’t care about Germany. The
main thing is that things go well for us!

How worker Hartmann became a National 1

This story tells how a decent German worker, after listening to the talk of a Jewish speaker in a communist
meeting, turns away in disgust and joins the National Socialists of Herr Hitler.

The Hitler Youth is out for a tramp. On the way they meet worker Hartmann and they invite him to tell them a
story. Worker Hartmann tells how, years ago, unemployed, he became a communist. He describes the
communist meetings. One day he observes that the leaders are Jews.

And as one of the Jews was always talking about Russia and always saying it was best there, I grew angry and
interrupted: Why are you always talking about Russia? We are German workers! Yes, we’re Germans.
We want to hear something about Germany, not Russia!

He goes on to tell how the speaker grew fearfully angry and finally called out:
What do we care about Germany? All that matters is that we get on and have a good time!

Now I knew enough. We workers should become traitors to the Fatherland. We should cooperate with the Jews
for the ruin of Germany. I would not be a traitor to the Fatherland. No, never! I turned my back on the Jews and
left the meeting. Three others came with me. That night I could not sleep. But then I knew what to do. I left the
communist party. Later, I found my way to Adolf Hitler. And I say to you: I shall stay with Hitler as long as I
live. I knew the Jews. I shall always think of the song that we workers sung:

How worker Hartmann became a National 2

It is still true today and there are lessons to be learned from it, not just for children either!
