Gauleiter Eigruber's Final Appeals (April 1945)
Those marvelous Austrians in charge of ANNO who are putting the full runs of newspapers on-line have just gotten to adding 1945. That gives me the chance to add the four final speeches by Gauleiter Eigruber, the first a speech on 10 April 1945, then on 15 April 1945, then on 20 April 1945, and finally an appeal on about 26 April 1945. They urge people to hold out until the end. They didn’t have to wait long for that end to come.
