And so, the scariest thing has happened: a major war has begun. I didn’t think that I would have to live through such a thing twice! I was firmly convinced that after the pact was signed with the Soviet Union that the Polish question would be solved through peaceful means. It would appear that Great Britain wasn’t able to agree to a “second Munich”. Chamberlain would have been torn to pieces if he had done that again… But the situation is still tragic! I really cannot any more… I can’t take pleasure in the diplomatic success which we achieved here in Moscow. Maybe, it wasn’t even a good thing for Germany at all! But now that is all in the hands of fate.
