Storyboard Text

  • The Europeans didn't really react to it; both Britain and France had their own issues and weren't able to fight as it didn't seem necessary.
  • March 1936: Hitler remilitarizes the Rhineland, breaking rules of the treaty of Versailles; he does this in order to benefit from the strategic location of the Rhineland.
  • In March 1938 Germany annexes Austria as 99% of Austrians vote to join Germany; people who oppose Nazi ideology  were tortured, killed, and arrested. Anti-Semitic acts follow the takeover. 
  • Europeans don't take action; the only thing is that there are vocal protests in UK and Vatican.
  • September 1938 Hitler agrees to sign the Munich Agreement stating that he won't attack anymore countries; yet in soon he invaded Czechoslovakia as that was the next step in his plan towards the "greater Germany".
  • The Europe sighed in relief as they though this pact would work since Chamberlain was praising it; yet everyone was in a shock when Hitler took over the Sudetenland only a day after signing the pact
  • In May 1939 Hitler signs the Pact of Steel which means Germany allies with Italy; both countries are uncertain of each other. This pact starts the Axis powers. 
  • The Europeans are aware of the alliance but didn't really react to it. It was on the newspapers but didn't even make a headline.
  • In August 1939 Germany and Soviet Union sign a Non-Aggression pact which guarantees that the countries won't attack each other within the next 10 years; the pact also states how the two powers are going to divide the Eastern Europe between them. The pact fell apart when Nazis invaded Soviet Union in June 1941.
  • Finally the countries started fearing for what's to come; the pact made headlines but no formal action was taken against Germany.
  • In September 1939 Germany invades Poland; Germany described the attack as self defense, and they also said it would be living space for Germans. 
  • The Allies were not convinced and finally declared a war against Germany leading to World War II beginning.
