"The bombing attacks on our city have a good side, Speer. It's easier to clean up debris than to demolish everything ourselves. When the war is won, reconstruction will be quick. We've spent thousands of hours together with these models. You're a true genius, Speer. Yes, absolutely. Only you and I know that the Third Reich would be inconceivable with only warehouses and factories, only skyscrapers and hotels. This Third Reich will be a treasury of art and culture that will survive thousands of years. We see before us the ancient cities, the Acropolis. We see the cities of the Middle Ages, we see its dome and know that people need something: a center. Yes, Speer, that was my vision, and it still is."
