Notes
Content : Picture caption: "Auch der tschechische Staatspräsident Dr. Hacha fährt zum Führer nach Berlin und legt das Schicksal der Tschechen in seine Hände. Staatspräsident Dr. Hacha bei der Ankunst in Berlin, wo er von Dr. Weissner begrüsst wird."

Content : Though this picture suggests a state visit between equals, Hitler kept Czech President Hacha waiting for hours, and once they were face-to-face, threatened and bullied him into agreeing to German demands.

Content : Title translates German picture caption
