Death after a policy of appeasement


The German cabinet under the lead of Joseph Wirth resigns. Its Erfüllungspolitik (policy of appeasement) did not at all lead to any leniency that could have been provided by the 1919 diktat authors.

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.  🇺🇦 🇷🇺
