Example text

There was massive Nazi Party and popular participation in the pogrom that marked a stage in the persecution of Jews looking toward what became known as the Holocaust synchronized with the move toward war (Steinweis 2009). From Hitler’s perspective, war against the Western powers in 1939 presupposed a quiet situation on Germany’s eastern borders. In the winter of 1938–1939, German diplomacy was directed toward assuring this. Of the three countries along the border, German diplomacy succeeded with Hungary and Lithuania but failed with Poland (Weinberg 2010, ch.

Stuttgart: Union Deutsche Verlagsgesellschaft. Jäckel, E. ) (1980) Hitler Sämtliche Aufzeichnungen, 1905–1924. Stuttgart: Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt. Johnson, P. B. (1968) Land Fit for Heroes: The Planning of British Reconstruction, 1916–1919. Chicago: University of Chicago Press. Kiesling, E. C.

Kral, V. ) (1968) Das Abkommen von München: Tschechoslowakische diplomatische Dokumente 1937–1939.

All would be broken by Germany when Hitler thought the time ripe, but in only two respects did the new regime move drastically. At what looked like the earliest opportunity, Germany left the Disarmament Conference then in session and withdrew from the League of Nations. The idea of being on an equal status with other countries in the League, including having like any other great power a permanent seat on the League’s Council, was too much to expect of a state destined to lead and control the world.
