  • Archduke Shot!!!
  • Today, June 28th, the terrorist group The Black
    Hand shot and killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand,
    the heir to the Austro-Hungarian thrown, and his
    pregnant wife Sophia. He had come to Sarajevo to
    inspect the Austro-Hungarian troops there. The
    terrorists saw this as a perfect opportunity to
    try and get rid of him. As his car traveled down
    the city streets of Sarajevo, two men were going
    to throw grenades but the streets were too
    crowded. A third terrorist was successful in
    throwing his grenade but it exploded under the
    car injuring several of the Archdukes
    attendants. Finally, on his way to visit his
    injured attendants at the hospital after lunch,
    his driver made a wrong turn and as he began to
    reverse, Gavrilo Princip fired two shots, one in
    the stomach of pregnant Sophia killing her and
    her unborn baby almost instantly. The second shot
    hit the Archduke in the neck, killing him a short
    time later. Princip will not receive the death
    penalty because he is too young, but he was
    sentenced to twenty years in prison.

". . . The key-stone of the Fascist doctrine is
its conception of the State, of its essence, its
functions, and its aims. For Fascism the State is
absolute, individuals and groups relative.
Individuals and groups are admissible in so far
as they come within the State. Instead of
directing the game and guiding the material and
moral progress of the community, the liberal
State restricts its activities to recording
results. The Fascist State is wide awake and has
a will of its own. For this reason it can be
described as 'ethical'. . . ." - Benito
Mussolini, Fascism Doctrine and Institutions,
Howard Fertig, 1932 Which statement expresses the
main idea of the passage? 1. The people have a
right to overthrow ineffective governments. 2.
The state is more important than the individuals
within it. 3. The state gets its authority from
the power of individuals. 4. The establishment
of an empire will cause division and chaos.
A map showing the growth of Nazi Germany by
September 1939. Once Hitler had firm control over
a renewed Germany and had found that the other
powers were willing to appease him, Hitler became
more aggressive. In 1936 he reclaimed the
demilitarized Rhineland, violating the treaties
of Versailles and Locarno in 1938 he invaded
Austria and annexed the Sudetenland in March
1939 he occupied the Czech lands, and in August
of that year he signed a non-aggression plan with
Russia which included a clause that divided
eastern Europe into German and Russian zones.
Then he conquered Poland in September 1939.
