On August 25, 1939, the New York Times published a front page of Otto D. Tolischus, «Nazi Talks Secret,» one of whose subtitles were «the Soviet Accords and the Empire`s Agreements on the East.»  On August 26, 1939, the New York Times reported on Japanese anger and the French communist surprise over the pact. But on the same day, Tolichus filed a story that was recorded by Nazi troops on the way to Gleiwitz (now Gliwice), which led to the Gleiwitz incident, on August 31, 1939, under the false flag.  On August 28, 1939, the New York Times reported the fear of a robbery on Gleiwitz.  On August 29, 1939, the New York Times reported that the Supreme Soviet had failed on the first day of its convening for the Covenant Act.  On the same day, the New York Times also reported from Montreal, Canada, that American professor Samuel N. Harper of the University of Chicago had publicly expressed his belief that «the Russian-German non-aggression pact concealed an agreement that Russia and Germany could have served spheres of influence for Eastern Europe.»  On August 30, 1939, the New York Times reported a Soviet construction on its western borders, moving 200,000 soldiers from the Far East.  Remember why Hitler`s request for the Sudetenland became an international crisis and assess the resulting agreement that Hitler, Chamberlain and Daladier had concluded. The Soviet government repeatedly denounced nazi Germany`s anti-Semitic policies, so the world was surprised when dictators announced the deal. And it completely changed the history of the world.
In one week, Nazi Germany invaded Poland. It was the beginning of the Second World War in Europe. Two weeks later, the Soviet Union invaded Poland from the east. And they divided Poland among themselves. It was then the end of Poland as a country, as a sovereign state. Since the end of the 19th century, Germany, which has few natural resources, has been heavily dependent on imports of Russian raw materials.  Prior to the First World War, Germany imported 1.5 billion German brands of raw materials and other products from Russia each year.  This declined after the First World War, but after the trade agreements signed between the two countries in the mid-1920s, trade had increased until 1927 to reach 433 million German marks per year.  In the late 1920s, Germany helped Soviet industry modernize and help build tank production facilities at the Bolshevik leningv plant and the Kharkov locomotive plant.
