The purpose of the Reichsautobahnen is to become the roads of Adolf Hitler.
Quoted in "Fascism in action: A documented study and analysis of fascism in Europe" - Page 147 - 1947
I could not imagine that we should make much of an effort to preserve remainders of natural beauty in conquered Poland.Fritz Todt
We do not build speedways, but roads which correspond to the character of the German landscape.Fritz Todt
The German landscape is something unique that we cannot disturb and have no right to destroy. The more densely populated our 'living space' becomes with settlements, the greater our hunger will grow for unspoilt nature. The ever increasing spiritual damage caused by life within the big city will make this hunger practically uncontrollable... when we build here on this the landscape of our homeland we must be clear that we will protect its beauty; and in places where this beauty has already disappeared, we will reconstruct it.Fritz Todt
The car is not a rabbit or a deer that jumps around in sweeping lines, but it is a man-made work of technology in need of an appropriate roadway. Rather, the car resembles a dragon fly or any other jumping animal that moves shorter distances in straight lines and then changes its direction at different points.Fritz Todt
