Munich - A written appraisal has surfaced for the first Toastmasters speech the young Adolf Hitler made here in 1921 revealing a hint of the future dictator's skill at public speaking that led to his eventual rise to power.

Ice Breaker Speech - Adolf Hitler

A good first speech, I liked it.
You seemed confident.

You are definitely passionate about your topic, perhaps too much at times.
Less spitting when you demonize your enemies might be a good idea.

Volume was good if not a bit too loud. We have only twenty people here. You spoke as if there were five thousand people in the room.

Hand gestures were good, the one arm salute was impressive but became repetitive over time, you may want to consider side-to-side movements as well or slow arm circles.

I liked your use of imagery especially when you ground your fist into your palm when describing "Crushing the English like worms". It was the most memorable part of the speech for me and really made me feel like you wanted to crush them.

We don't usually see leg gestures. The stiff-legged march seemed odd.

The speech was a bit long. Most Toastmasters speeches are two to five minutes. Three hours is much too long for an ice-breaker speech.

The use of intimidation is not necessary. The colleagues you brought with you in brown shirts that broke the arms of the Time Counter and then stood on his face with their jack boots went too far. I would like to judge a speech on its own merits.

We don't usually comment on content but the part about the Jews being "The Scourge of Mankind" seemed extreme. You may want to confirm your facts before your next speech.

Overall a good first effort.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
