The German–Polish Non-Aggression Pact
Signed January 26, 1934

The German and Polish governments signed a non-agression pact
which respected the two countries' borders for ten years. The pact
provided Poland with some assurance that Germany would not
attempt to recover the Polish corridor by military force.

But as history reminds us, the pact was not to stand. On April
28, 1938, the Nazis removed Germany from it and on September
1, 1939, they invaded Poland (see photo above), putting aside
any notion of peaceful and neighborly behavior.
