A policy of appeasement's dead end
🇩🇪 : Joseph Wirth's cabinet resigns. Its Erfüllungspolitik (policy of appeasement) did not at all lead to any leniency: The 1919 diktat authors felt no remorse and stuck to their position.
Five months before, Wirth's Foreign Secretary had been murdered by the diktat's radical opponents. Two days after the horrible loss of his colleague, Wirth held a remarkable Reichstag speech (🎧). If you happened to listen to every word in it, the timelessness and actual applicability may shake everyone who is looking for veracity in the present-day armed conflict among Europeans. 🇺🇦 🇷🇺
