"Baby carriages have no rubber tires; a can is prized as a rare metal because tin has disappeared. Housewives cannot buy kitchen utencils, or tea, coffee, natural silks, quinine. There is not enough insulin in Germany to give diabetic Germans one percent of what they need to stay alive. Doctors have ceased writing prescriptions because druggists have almost nothing in stock except domestic medicinal herbs. There is not enough radium to take care of all the cancer cases. Newspapers are rationed and you buy them only by subscription. They limit war coverage to the official communiqués and a daily explanatory article by an official analyst. There are no casualty lists, but bereaved families are allowed to publish paid death notices, and in that way it is possible to judge the tempo of military losses."
"Goebbels had a field day when the first American Negro airman was taken prisoner - or so he says. Immediately, German newspapers blazed with indignant headlines and sour cartoons picturing our airman as naked cannibals of Africa brandishing fire bombs and high-explosive bombs as their ancestors used their spears."
