Headlines from German press

The German propaganda campaign against Warsaw climaxed in the days before the invasion, featuring such headlines as "All of Poland in a War Fever," "Terror by Poles [against ethnic Germans] Grows Day by Day / Polish Bandits Murder Five-Month-Old Infant," and "Poland Rejects Negotiations." This Völkischer Beobachter headline reads: "The German Proposal / Two Days Waiting in Vain for Polish Negotiator / Reich Government Views as Refusal"]
