Exactly! Let the non-Sudeten Austro-Germans and Czechs deceide what is best. I'm sure at the time, if the conditions were right some, not many or all, but some Czechs might have considered it economically advantageous to join with Germany than stay the course, independant and without Slovakia. Think about what an economic powerhouse that GrossDeutsches Reich country would be!Pirx wrote:Bohemia + Moravia + Sudetenland = Czech teritory.
If Sudetenland should go to Germany and rest should have referendum, what stay in Czech hands? Should be anschluss referendum in Prag?
Great Poland was 120 years inside Germany and there was no economicall advantage on this province.some Czechs might have considered it economically advantageous to join with Germany than stay the course
Gooood, that time most of both Western and Eastern Pomarania would be Polish, because treating them en gross, Poles had majority there. I suppose this would not be liked by Germans - or, using commenst from this thread - it would not be "fair".
There was a referendum in Silesia concerning incorporation of its regions to Poland or to Germany (btw unfairly violated by Germany on numerous occasions). So why to make it again?Bohemia-Moravia was Czech by definition so making any plebiscite there would make no sense.
Whose definition? Wasn't Bohmia an Austiran province before 1919? Do you deny the existance of 3.5 million Germans (to about 6 million Czechs)
hardly overwhelming Czech majority. only about 60-40,
Why should Poles agree to have their country split in two, just to make transport for Germans easier?
Why should the Germans have to lose WestPreussen to give the Poles sea access?
This was in my opinion a rather light-hearted "what-if" forum. can't we back off the harshness a bit?
