Why did Hitler despise Czechoslovakia?
- Hitler had a lifelong hatred of Slavic people. The Germans as a whole really did not like the Slavic people either but Hitler was obsessive about it.
- He did not like the fact that German people were living in parts of Czechoslovakia (known as the Sudetenland) due to the demands of the Treaty of the Versailles. He eventually annexed that area back into Germany and those Germanic people were finally relieved of being part of a Slavic nation.
- Their hatred of Slavs was irrational just as the racism against the Black Slaves in the USA long ago was irrational.
