A betrayal of Germany and a national humiliation.


Hitler believed that Germany had been betrayed by its leaders in surrendering in 1918. He felt a military victory was still a possibility.

He also felt that the extremely punitive measures on Germany contained in the Treaty of Versailles were humiliating and needed to be overcome.

Such attitudes were also related to his anti-semitism. He blamed Jewish financiers for starting the war.

These attitudes dominated Hitler's foreign policy from his re-occupation of the Rhineland and re-armament both of which broke the Treaty of Versailles, to his occupation of Austria, the Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia, and finally the attack on Poland which started World War 2.
