“Ihr mann kommt nicht wieder” - which may be idiomatically translated as “Your man will not come home” - is the curt intimation German widows are to receive that Hitler has accepted the supreme sacrifice of their husbands in the cause of his ambition.

“Thou’ll come no more, never, never, never, never, never.”*

*Shakespeare, King Lear V,iii,305—307
