NotesImage 1: See LSE3279 for published cartoon. Germany. - Diplomatic Changes. - New
Ambassadors at the Vatican, Madrid and Nanking. ... Weizsacker and Dieckhoff, both
Catholics, are experienced diplomatists (the former held high rank in the foreign office
since 1935 and belongs to the "old school" of diplomats), and their appointment to the
Vatican and Madrid was seen in London as part of Hitler's "diplomatic offensive" to create
support for his plans for the so-called "Statute of Europe" sedulously fostered by Axis
propaganda. [Keesing's Contemporary Archives p.5727] Image 2: See DL2006 for original
