17 Jun 1934
  • Vice-Chancellor von Papen made a speech at Marburg University in Germany in which he protested about the Nazi control of the press and warning against further radicalism. The Nazi leaders meanwhile were spending that Sunday with the F├╝hrer, Hitler, at a conference in Thuringia, Germany, and to them Papen's speech sounded like a rallying call for counter-revolution. Publication of the speech was banned by Goebbels, who was a main target of much of Papen's criticism. ww2dbase [Franz von Papen | AC]
