The Prostitution of Self-Determination by Hitler in Austria

The Prostitution of Self-Determination by Hitler in Austria

Date: January 1955
Creator: Bates, Stephen S.
Description: The right of national independence, which came to be called the principle of self-determination, is, in general terms, the belief that each nation has a right to constitute an independent state and determine its own government. It will be the thesis of this paper to show that the Nazi regime under the rule of Adolph Hitler took this principle as its own insofar as its relations with other nations were concerned, but while they paid lip service to the principle, it was in fact being prostituted to the fullest degree in the case of Austria and the Anschluss of 1938.
