Example text

What Germany really needed was hundreds of thousands of square kilometers of land on which to settle farm families who would grow the food Germany needed and raise the children who would provide soldiers for added conquests of land until the whole earth was occupied by the racially superior Germans. There would be a demographic revolution on the globe, and the killing of all Jews would be a central portion of that event (Heuss 1932). Designated chancellor of Germany by President Hindenburg at the end of January 1933, Hitler quickly consolidated his powers.

In his speeches and his writings, Adolf Hitler always denounced those who wanted to reclaim what Germany had lost by the peace treaty as stupid “Grenzpolitiker,” border politicians, as compared to his brilliant self, the “Raumpolitiker,” the politician of space (Jäckel 1980). What Germany needed was certainly not the snippets of land lost by the 1919 treaty; securing their recovery would mean wars costing large numbers of lives for land that would still leave Germany without the agricultural space on which to raise the food it needed.

He was not concerned about the Soviet Union, which had no common border with Czechoslovakia and was in the process of decapitating its military. When, to Hitler’s astonishment, Chamberlain obtained the agreement of the Prague government to the demand for territorial cession as the British leader told him when they met again at Bad Godesberg, he quickly raised his demands so that he could still turn to military action. This revelation of Germany’s real aim quickly brought about a double reversal in the international situation.
