Questions which the entire world 'seeks to answer represenled in the reap above, depicting the European uncertainties which have followed in the \vake of Nazi Chancellor Hitler's domination of Ausina. Just- as before the World War, when the Kaiser planned his ."Drang nach.

As shown In shaded portions of the map above, success of the Halo-German plan would result in a bloc more powerful even than the Central Powers cf the World War era. • Austria, already under German domination is only a pitiful 'remnant of tin pre-191, Auslro-Hmi- gnrian Empire, shown in shaded portions of the map at right, which included all of what is now Czechoslovakia and parts of Rumania.
