This is an excerpt from a syndicated 1934 U.S. news article.  This scan, specifically, is from the January 4, 1934 issue of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, retrieved from archive site Newspapers.com.

Adolf Hitler specifically said he would make Germany great again

Randall Munroe (xkcd.com) tipped off Matt Novak (Gizmodo.com) that this article existed, and Novak wrote it up, so if you were wondering whether Internet publishers can actually add value to discussions about critical issues, ask yourself:  "Have I seen this discussed or reprinted anywhere else?"

As of this writing, the Snopes page for this claim tags it as "mostly false".
