There was no coalition in Danzig of the NSDAP and the Zentrum : Hitler got 38 seats, the others 29 seaths .The KPD was outlawed .Stiltzkin wrote: ↑04 Oct 2018 15:46Thats the original posters question. Hitler did only achieve the majority from a coaliation with the Zentrum (aka the church, ironic isn't it).Why should Hitler ''seize'' Danzig ?Well if that is true, then why not give Bremen or Rotterdam to the jurisdiction of other nations, or maybe Singapore to China, since it is a "lesser China".The fact is that the current situation (Danzig as not ''independent '' state could not last .
You don't get it : the situation in Danzig could not last : or there would be an Anschluss, or Danzig would become Polish .But,there was no urgency for the Anschluss,as Danzig was de facto already a part of Germany since 1933 .The Anschluss of Danzig could have happened before 1939, and Poland would not have intervened by force ,because Poland needed a strong Germany to prevent a Soviet attack . Only Hitler could prevent a Soviet invasion and only Stalin could prevent a German invasion . France was far away,weak and had no interest to fight for Poland, as it was not in the interest of France to fight for the Czechs,or,before WWI, to fight for the Russians .
