The 5 x 7-1/2 inch, 192 pages hardcover book in excellent condition was published in January 1939 as a remembrance of the historic days in October of 1938 when the Sudetenland was annexed by Germany.

The Sudetenland was occupied by Germany between October 1 and October 10, 1938. The remaining parts of Czechoslovakia were subsequently annexed by Germany in March 1939. The Sudetenland was put under military admi-nistration, with General Wilhelm Keitel as Military governor. The annexed territories were divided, with the southern parts being incorporated into the neighboring Reichsgaue (Reich Districts) Oberdonau and Niederdonau. The northern and western parts were reorganized as the Reichsgau Sudetenland, with the city of Reichenberg (today Liberec) established as its capital. Konrad Henlein was appointed first as Reichskommissar (until May 1, 1939) and then as Reichsstatthalter (May 1, 1939 – May 4, 1945). On December 4, 1938 were elections in the Reichsgau Sudetenland, in which 97.32% of the adult population voted for NSDAP. About 500,000 Sudetendeutsche (ethnic Germans in the Sudetenland) joined the Nazi Party which was 17.35% of the German population in Sudetenland (the average NSDAP participation in Nazi Germany was 7.85%). This means that the Sudetenland was the most "pro-Nazi" region in the Third Reich. Because of their knowledge of the Czech language, many Sudetendeutsche were employed in administrative positions in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, i.e. Karl Hermann Frank who became SS and Police general and Secretary of State in the Protectorate.
