Destruction of Nazi ideology in all areas of life and knowledge. Battle against the spiritual perpetrators of Nazi crimes and war crimes. Battle against all reactionary, militaristic ideas. Purging and keeping public life free from their influence.
Creation of a national unity front of German intellectual workers. Creation of an unbreakable unity between the intelligentsia and the people. With confidence in the viability of our people and its power to change: a rebirth of the German spirit under the banner of a militant democratic Weltanschauung. Collaboration with all ideological, religious, and church movements, and with groups with a democratic orientation.
