|The tragedy of this Sudeten
(Czech) woman, who is unable to conceal her great misery as she
dutifully salutes the triumphant Adolf Hitler, is the tragedy of the
silent millions who were "won over" to Nazism by the "everlasting use"
by Germany of ruthless force. Germany annexed the Sudetenland
(part of Czechoslovakia) under the pretext that the German-speaking
population of this region was by nature destined to be part of the
German empire. This photograph was taken in the year 1938. Click here to enlarge.
