NotesSee LSE2913 for published cartoon. News: The Gauleiter of Lorraine, Herr Burckel, announced on Dec. 1 that by order of Hitler the Saar and Lorraine would be united to form an integral part of the Reich under the appellation of Westmark (corresponding to the Austrian Ostmark created after the invasion of Austria).... As a gesture by Germany to France, the ashes of the Duke of Reichstadt - son of Napoleon, who died in childhood were, at Hitler's order, taken from Vienna and reintered in the Invalides in Paris on Dec. 14 with German military ceremony in the presence of Herr Abetz, the German representative in the French capital. Hitler was thanked for this "courtesy" by Marshal Petain. [Keesing's Contemporary Archive p.4427] Feb 11
