CHY 4U 2012: Invasion of Poland

Polish War Memorial via Flickr, by John Morris

Please read the following sections of your textbook:

  •  Annexation of Austria (451 – last paragraph)
  •  Nazi-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact (456)
  • Invasion of Poland (457)

Once you are done, you will write a 1 page letter from the perspective of a citizen, soldier, or politician from Poland. Your letter will be addressed to either a loved one or Ignacy Mościcki, President of Poland. In your letter, you will explain:

  • your initial response to the Nazi-Soviet Pact (Remember, Poland separates the Germans and the Russians: does this Non-Aggression Pact reassure you that your region is safe, or does it make you fearful about your neighbouring states’ intentions for your homeland?)
  • Your feelings about the Invasion of Poland (remember to work in details from the reading into your work).
  • You will be shown this clip to help you generate some more ideas. Pay particular attention to the disparity between the German war machine and the Polish military.
