Notes
Content : To justify the upcoming occupation, German propaganda tries to make the case that Czechoslovakia is in turmoil and the Czechs cannot even rule their own country. The mention of smashed Jewish shop windows is ironic in light of the "Kristallnacht" attacks in Germany only a few months before.

Content : Picture caption: "Die Tschechoslowakei gerät immer mehr in eine Verfallskrise. In Pressburg kommt es zu ernsten Zwischenfällen zwischen Tschechen und Slowaken. Die Slowaken zertrümmern die Schaufenster sämtlicher jüdischer Geschäfte."
