NotesNews: Germany: Goring's Speech on Russian
Winter... German Leaders and Press on the "New European Order". - .... Leading German
personalities, and the German press, have in recent months made a number of pronouncements on the
so-called "New Europe" which would result from a German victory ... Food Situation: As from April
6 the weekly bread, meat and fat rations were reduced... It was officially explained that the
cuts were due to the poor crops resulting from bad weather and lack of agricultural labour on the
one hand, and to the greatly increased requirements on the other caused by demands of the armed
forces, ... Admissions were made that in spite of all pre-war preparations the food situation had
deteriorated "slowly but steadily" since the beginning of the war, that food imports from the
Danubian countries had declined heavily, and that there were no immediate prospects of utilising
the Ukraine cornfields to relieve the position. ... [Keesing's Contemporary Archives p.5273]
