New democratic nations struggled Russia Soviet Union in 1922 after civil war Italy faced unemployment, inflation, & threat of communist state Weimar Republic in Germany couldnt restore prosperity after TOV & impacts of Great Depression People sought strong leadership & national pride Initial Actions Stalin, in his effort to turn the SU into an industrial leader, purges anyone who threatens his power; ~10 million killed Mussolini establishes a fascist state in Italy & begins expanding conquers Ethiopia in 1936

I will give these things with love if possible, with force if necessary. Benito Mussolini

Roosevelt speaks against continued isolation The peace, the freedom, and the security of 90 percent of the population of the world is being jeopardized by the remaining 10 percent who are threatening a breakdown of all international order and law. Surely the 90 percentcan and must find some wayto preserve peace. Theodore Roosevelt, 1937 Ethiopian emperor Haile Selassie begs the League of Nations to intervene against Italys invasion - It is us today. It will be you tomorrow. HOME MAP SECTION

2 War in Europe OVERVIEW MAIN MAINIDEA IDEA WHY WHYIT ITMATTERS MATTERS NOW NOW Using the sudden mass attack called blitzkrieg, Germany

invaded and quickly conquered many European countries. Hitlers actions started World War II and still serve as a warning to be vigilant about totalitarian government. TERMS TERMS&&NAMES NAMES Charles de Gaulle blitzkrieg

nonaggression pact Winston Churchill appeasement Neville Chamberlain ASSESSMENT ASSESSMENT Vocab to Remember Anschluss political & economic union Plebiscite means of showcasing popular support for the action being taken (as a way of proving that the people were in agreement).

often fixed and did not ACTUALLY reflect the peoples approval Reich realm or empire; a perceived encompassment of all German people & territory throughout the world the entirety of what Germany had the right to control & utilize. Hitler wanted to est. the Third Reich Appeasement making concessions to an aggressor in order to avoid war policy taken by Britain & France in signing the Munich Pact believed it was the best course of action to prevent another world war The Beginnings of War 1938 Germany invades Austria Feb: Chancellor Schuschnigg of Austria visits Hitler, who demands a shift in power to members of Austrian Nazi party

March 9: With mixed public opinion, Schuschnigg calls for a plebiscite March 12: Germany invades Austria & declares Anschluss; Schuschnigg arrested March 16: Mussolini states his approval of the annexation (though Italy had been Austrias ally) April 10: Plebiscite is held in Austria & Germany to gauge support; result = ~99% in both countries Sept 24: Hitler makes first official demands for Sudetenland (in Czechoslovakia) & Sudeten Germans to be returned to the Reich; threatens mobilization by Oct 1 Sept 30: France, Great Britain & Italy sign Munich Pact with Germany 1939 Germany invades Czechoslovakia & Poland; USSR invades Finland

March: invasion of Czech. Aug: Germany & USSR sign non-aggression pact, dividing up Poland Sept: Germany invades Poland; blitzkrieg with Luftwaffe Sept: France & Britain declare war on Germany Nov: USSR invades Finland German depiction of the Anschluss This is part of a painting by Rudolf Hermann Eisenmemger titled Austria Comes Home. It depicts an Austrian freed from chains marching alongside the swastika flag. The event

portrayed is the Anschlu with Austria in 1938. Source: Die Kunst im Deutschen Reich, March 1941. The Munich Pact In 1939, Britain & France meet with Germany to work out an agreement Germany makes a list of demands, including expanded territory & that Sudeten Germans be returned to the Reich Chamberlain, Daladier, Mussolini & Hitler sign the Pact Should they have signed it??

Questions to Consider Can we trust that this will be Hitlers last set of demands? What has he said or done that would suggest that this will satisfy him? What would happen if we denied his demands and refused to authorize this? Can we trust Germany to abide by its pacts and agreements? How have they respected other treaties in the past (with Austria, with Czechoslovakia, the Treaty of Versailles)? Why isnt Czechoslovakia in this meeting? How will signing this affect our alliances with other countries? Our reputation? Do the Sudeten people WANT to return to the German Reich? Would Czechoslovakia be benefitted or harmed by letting them leave? By giving up territory? How does the memory of WWI (the war overall and Germanys role) play into this decision? What series of events led up to the Austrian Anschluss that could be a predictor of how this will turn out? What is the motivation behind reunifying the German Reich? Is it for national unity?

Or political/economic dominance in Europe? 1940 war begins with major Axis advances Spring: USSR takes eastern Poland, Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania Spring: Germany invades Norway & Denmark (claiming to be protecting them from USSR; really getting ready for attack on Great Britain); also invades Netherlands, Belgium & Luxembourg Britain & France try to hold Germany back at the Maginot Line; Hitler goes around them through Ardennes Germany pushes Allied forces to Dunkirk (edge of the English Channel); meanwhile, Italy joins Axis powers & invades southern France June: France surrenders to Germany; Charles De Gaulle flees to England & sets up govt in exile Summer: Battle of Britain begins Germany invades along French coast by air (Luftwaffe); 2 months of air raids over London (~2,600 planes) Sept: Britains Royal Air Force (RAF) uses radar to track German planes;

shoots down >185 German planes Oct 31: Hitler calls off the invasion; continued air raids between the 2 nations The Holocaust Lets clear some things up! Did not arise from nowhere or only in Germany LONG history of anti-Semitism in many countries Christians; social Darwinists (eugenics movement); many cultures that saw Jews as different & inferior & blamed them for specific problems (like the plague) Jews were not the only target Not the cause of WWII Occurred in 5 stages Identification & stripping of rights, segregation, concentration, final solution, aftermath

More extreme stages took place during WWII; discrimination & loss of some rights happened earlier 1930s began widespread boycotts of Jewish businesses Nuremberg Laws (1935) officially defined Jewish & began stripping rights Quickly escalated to violence, segregation, and the opening of camps NjQi1Pmkc Hitlers final solution was to exterminate all
