Anschluss Österreich (Union of Austria [with Germany]), Salzburg, March 1938: The original German caption reads: "On Saturday, when the German troops marched into Salzburg, the entire population was at a frenzy of enthusiasm. Everywhere you looked [you saw] radiant faces, and many people carried portraits of the Fuehrer, and almost all were waving swastika flags." At least, the propaganda writer left an "almost" in there.

One of the first victims of fascist agression was Czechoslovakia, dismembered at the Munich Conference in 1938 (when Sudetenland was ceded to Germany) and shortly thereafter occupied. This map shows some of the groundwork laid by the Nazis to convince the German public opinion that it was the Czechoslovak side that was responsible for the ‘threat’, indicating that the range of Czechoslovak bomber planes include most of Germany’s territory. The map apparently dates from 1934.
Pomnichovská politická reprezentace poměrně dlouho hledala osobnost, která by vystřídala v prezidentském úřadě odstoupivšího Edvarda Beneše. Nakonec volba padla na Emila Háchu, vynikajícího právníka, znalce umění a poctivého katolíka, ale hlavně člověka bez politické příslušnosti. 66letý Hácha přitom roli prezidenta, kdy měl být víceméně pouze loajální figurkou bez vlastní politiky, přijal především jako oběť.
