Walter Hallstein's ‘Conquest Speech’: Future Europe under Nazi/IG Farben Control

Walter Hallstein, German lawyer, chief architect and first president of the Brussels EU from 1958 to 1967, gave this speech in January 1939

On January 23, 1939, Walter Hallstein, then Dean of the Faculty of Law and Economics at the University of Rostock, Germany, gave a propaganda speech about the legal restructuring of Europe. His presentation, which may best be characterized as the ‘Conquest Speech’, was part of the war mobilization by the Nazi regime and their corporate partners, the Oil and Drug Cartel IG Farben.

The timing of this speech was highly significant. Only ten months prior, on March 12, 1938, the Nazis had annexed Austria. On October 10, 1938, – only 3 months prior to Hallstein’s speech – the Nazis had also annexed the Czech territory of Sudetenland (Bohemia, Moravia) by threatening war if their territorial claim was not fulfilled. At an international conference in Munich, on September 29/30, 1938, Hitler had assured the world that with the annexation of the Sudetenland his territorial claims would be satisfied. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Most importantly, the dawn of the nuclear age and their perceived monopoly of this technology encouraged the Nazis to accelerate their plans for world conquest. Hallstein’s ‘Conquest Speech’ leaves no doubt that he knew about and fully supported the subjugation of Europe – and later the entire world – under the complete economic, political and judicial control of the Nazi/IG Farben coalition. In his speech, he specifically describes the planned conquest of Europe by the Wehrmacht and the subjugation of Europe as an “economic event of sheer unimaginable consequences.”

This speech, of course, reflects the dilemma the Nazis faced in January 1939 – only seven months before the launch of WWII. While Hallstein and the other Nazi propagandists had to prepare – and motivate – the German elite for a full-scale world war, they could not yet openly talk about their war plans in public.

The fact that Hallstein’s lecture was not just a university gathering but an official event of the Nazi State is underscored by the presence of Nazi Minister of State, Dr. Scharf – Hitler’s representative in the State Government of Mecklenburg of which Rostock was the capital – as well as the entire elite of the Nazi State in this region.

The site of Hallstein’s propaganda speech, ‘Mahn and Ohlerichs Celler’, in Rostock, Doberaner Str. 21, is still a landmark today.

Imagine, you are part of this eery scenery more than 80 years ago. A cold winter night in January 1939, freezing temperatures have taken hold of the German harbour city of Rostock on the edge of the Baltic Sea. Snow and ice is covering the roads and darkness has filled the air.

Suddenly the silence is broken. The main roads in downtown Rostock seem to move, the cobble stones reverberate under the nailed boots of soldiers, brown shirts and Nazi State officials. They mingled seemlessly with local politicians, university professors and students all dressed in formal attire, signifying the importance of the event. The Nazi elite is heading to one of the largest convention sites in town: ‘Mahn & Ohlerichs Keller’, the event hall of the local brewery.

The keynote speaker for this evening is a 38 year old law professor from the Rostock University: Walter Hallstein. His speech, which you are about to read on the following pages, will change your perspective on the ‘Brussels EU’ forever.
