A Quote from Hitler on German-Austrian Reunion

"The elemental cry of the German-Austrian people for union with the German mother country, that arose in the days when the Hapsburg state was collapsing, was the result of a longing that slumbered in the heart of the entire people-a longing to return to the never-forgotten ancestral home. But this would be in explicable if the historical education of the individual German-Austrian had not given rise to so general a longing. In it lies a well which never grows dry; which, especially in times of forgetfulness, transcends all momentary prosperity and by constant reminders of the past whispers softly of a new future." 
- Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, "In the House of My Parents"
