New to your blog, so I am curious to what the connection is with Prague.
I know that Czechoslovakia was an artifical state–composed of many minorities– created by the victors at the 1919 “Make Germany Pay” Paris Peace Conference. It was designed as a “checkmate” on post WWI German attempts to rebuild. Within this “artifical” state, millions of Sudeten Germans lived under Benes Czech rule.
David Irving devotes a chapter(Operation Green) in his book Hitler’s War on the Munich Agreement and Hitler’s plan to bring the German Sudeten minorities back into the Reich. Something like ten million Germans were ethnically cleansed from their historic homelands after WWI.
In the posted video, Hitler compares the plight of the hapless Palestinians under the League of Nations Palestine mandate, to that of the Sudeten Germans of Benes Czechoslovakia.
