Goebbels wrote a weekly essay for the prestige publication Das Reich. Most articles (and speeches) were later reprinted in one of three collections published during the war. Goebbels was very careful in what he wrote and rarely had to eat his words.
Still, there were essays that didn’t get reprinted. Sometimes he may simply have thought them not up to his usual standards. Other times, they might prove uncomfortable given developments. Today I’m adding one of the essays omitted from his books. Titled “Where Do We Stand,” it may have seemed a tad too optimistic four or five months later when the book appeared.
