I am looking for a particular speech made by Gustav Stresemann in which he says something along the lines of,
"The German economy is doing well only on the surface. Germany is in fact dancing on a volcano. If the short-term loans are called in by America, most of our economy will collapse."

I need because I'm using the quote as a source for my History coursework, but my teacher says I need to find the full speech.

All I can find about this speech is that it was in 1929, shortly before his death. If someone can find this speech I will be very, very grateful, I'll throw in some +Rep too ^_^

The exact quote is:

"The economic position is only flourishing on the surface. Germany is in fact dancing on a volcano. If the short-term credits are called in, a large section of our economy would collapse."

You can simply quote it as from a speech made by Gustav Stresemann shortly before his death on 3 October 1929. Don't see why you need the full speech...

Okay, thanks for that but do yu happen to know who he was speaking to, where he said this or any other details?
Need the whole speech because we're supposed to find 'primary sources' and when it gets to edexcel, well it wont look like a proper source either way, im still adding it

Can't find exactly where, but if I were you I'll just say "Speech in 1929", usually that should suffice.

Perhaps you could find a source for your quote here?

EDIT:
Do you know if the speech from around September 1929 (Stresemann died in October of the same year didn't he?)

It's the first link but it is all in French! Sorry about that.
