No. 75 :
M. Leon Noel, French Ambassador in Warsaw, to M. Georges Bonnet, Minister for Foreign Affairs. Warsaw, March 16, 1939.

Is the action recently taken in Europe by Germany the prelude to further acts in the west or in the east?

In Warsaw, the second hypothesis seems quite plausible.

Germany's dissatisfaction with Poland is dear, since the anti-German demonstrations made by the students.

Herr von Moltke does not conceal from his colleagues his ill-humour, which does not spare M. Beck, and he complains that the meeting of the German-Polish commission in Berlin has had no useful result.

The development of sentiments hostile to Germany among all classes of Polish people cannot escape any observer.

It is to be supposed that the reactions and the calculations of the Chancellor will be influenced by this situation.

I learn, too, that a Ukrainian deputy in the Polish Diet, returning from Berlin, has announced that he received there assurances of a new campaign by Germany in favour of the Ukraine.

Leon Noel.
