Best Answer

first answer: Austria, by voluntary referendum, 1938.

Specifically the Rhineland

second answer: Yes it was Austria in 12 March 1938, however it was not a voluntary referendum. It is known as the "Anschluss" in German. In English, it means connection or union. This 'union' was forced on the Austrian government by Hitler's threats. Hitler intended to prevent the Austrian referendum scheduled for 13 March 1938. Although many Austrians saw Hitler in a favorable light, others saw the event as an annexation or occupation. The event was a violation of the Versailles Treaty.

The Rhineland, is an area inside Germany, was re-occupied by German troops in March 1936 in violation of the Versailles & Locarno Treaties. Those treaties had provisions to keep the area de-militarized after World War One. This event occurred two years prior to the annexation of Austria.
