- The Marburg Speech
- Speech given by German vice chancellor Franz von Papen at the University of Marburg on June 17th 1934.
- Many Conservatives were willing to 'work towards the Fuhrer' in their desire to destroy democracy and create an authoritarian state, even after the Nazis had shaken off its shackles with conservatives and nationalists.
- Few opposed but when they did, did so out of conscience. Often they wanted to reverse the breakdown in the rule of law that they felt was undermining and morally corrupting Germany.
