Hitler's final offer to Poland's Josef Beck

Giesler:Until the last massive snub by the Polish leadership at the end of August 1939, he couldn’t imagine that they would let it come to a fight.”

 

Adolf Hitler and Polish Foreign Minister Jozef Beck meet together in 1937 when relations were still fairly good. By August 1939, Beck was ignoring Hitler’s requests to talk about their common borders and Hitler’s main concern that could wait no longer – Danzig.

The Germans, on August 29, made a new offer to negotiate with Poland. By this offer, they were telling the world that they preferred diplomacy to war. The Poles, by refusing this offer to talk, told the world that they favored war. British Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax, by refusing to encourage the Poles to negotiate, also favored war. What Halifax did encourage was for the Hitler government to believe that the Poles were willing to talk, when he knew they were not.

Hans Krampe returns to discuss the book Dönitz at Nuremberg: A Re-Appraisal—War Crimes and the Military Professional and his article “Dönitz and the American Brass.” Topics include:
  • U.S. Flag Officers call the guilty verdict against Admiral Dönitz a mistake and a stain on the reputation of the U.S. Military–10 years after the fact;
  • U.S. Pres. Roosevelt secretly promoted attacks against German Navy in the Atlantic while claiming U.S. neutrality;
  • The IMT dispensed with habeas corpus, invented crimes ex post facto, and allowed only selected documents to be presented;
  • Murray Cohen Bernays created the “legal framework” for the IMT and a majority of the interrogators were also Jews;
  • Once Hans realized he had been lied to, his attitude toward Britain, Canada, Poland and Jews changed.
