The attack on the small neutral country Luxembourg was part of the Westfeldzug in which Luxembourg and Belgium were used as transit territories to attack France by outflanking the Maginot Line. Plans for the attack had been prepared by October 9, 1939 but execution was postponed several times. On May 10, 1940 the German Wehrmacht invaded Luxem-bourg, Belgium and the Netherlands. In the evening of the same day the whole country with the exception of the south was occupied by German forces. On May 17, 1940, the Volksdeutsche Bewegung was founded in Luxembourg City under the leadership of Damian Kratzenberg. Its main goal was to push the population towards a German-friendly position through means of propaganda and thus to lead Luxembourg Heim ins Reich. Gustav Simon was the civil administrator of the Gaue Trier-Koblenz (later Mosel-land) and led a propaganda campaign, known as Heim ins Reich to convince the population that they were ethnic Germans and a natural part of the Ger-man Third Reich. As Gauleiter, he was only responsible to Adolf Hitler. This book was published by the propaganda department of Simons ministry.
