The Damned (1969)
Umberto Orsini: Herbert Thallman
Herbert Thallman : It's all over, Gunther. It was everyone's fault, even mine. It does no good to raise one's voice when it's too late, not even to save your soul. The fear of a proletariat revolution, which would've thrown the entire country to the left... was too great, and now we can't defend it any longer! Nazism, Gunther, is our creation. It was born in our factories, nourished with our money!
Herbert Thallman : All right. My resignation has been ready for some time, Joachim. If this is what you're asking.
Joachim Von Essenbeck : I'm forced to do it, Herbert. Against my will, and without strong conviction, but... the steel works!
Herbert Thallman : Yes, right or wrong, they must always come first. That has always been your creed. You even sent your son to the slaughter so you could say "You see, the Essenbecks put children and cannons into the world with the same sentiment, and with the same sentiment they'll be buried!"
