Reichstag Speech January 30 1937

“By a series of agreements we have removed existing tensions and thereby contributed considerably to an improvement in the European atmosphere. I merely recall our agreement with Poland, which has worked out to the advantage of both sides …. And to my own fellow-citizens I would say that the Polish nation and the Polish State have also become a reality …. The peoples of these States (i.e., Italy, Poland and the Balkan States) desire to live and they will live.”
