Notes

: Picture caption: "Am 4. September eröffnete der Führer das 2. Kriegswinterhilfswerk. In seiner Rede versicherte er den Engländern, sie sollen sich beruhigen, wir kämen! Zum letztenmal warnte er vor der gewissenlosen Bombardierung deutscher Arbeiterwohnungen." Note 2.) Title translates German picture caption Note 3.) Hitler never kept his promise. On September 17, 1940 he officially "postponed" the planned invasion of England, Operation Sea Lion. With Germany's attack on Russia in June 1941, her energies were focused on the Eastern front and England was never again seriously under threat of invasion. Note 4.) Picture caption: "Am 4. September eröffnete der Führer das 2. Kriegswinterhilfswerk. In seiner Rede versicherte er den Engländern, sie sollen sich beruhigen, wir kämen! Zum letztenmal warnte er vor der gewissenlosen Bombardierung deutscher Arbeiterwohnungen."
