Psychological Warfare

Another from the treasure trove of my father's World War II era belongings. This I presume was meant to be dropped into a German city, for someone to read. Please excuse the crookedness of this, as I took a photo, and not a scan. Here's a translation:

 

At the top: On February 18th, 1943, a few weeks after the catastrophe of Stalingrad, Dr. Goebbels put the question to a mass meeting at the Berlin Sportpalast:

Beneath the picture: THE GERMAN PEOPLE MUST CHOSE FOR THEMSELVES:

EITHER continuation of the total Nazi-war until final destruction of German man-power and industry -- OR:

 

The rest of the message is continued on the back. If you want to see, just leave me a note, and I'll upload and have a translation.
