This Day in the History of Nazi First Steps

On this day in 1933, the new National Socialist government in Germany announced that the country was withdrawing from the League of Nations and would take no further part in the Geneva Disarmament Conference. We were never stupid enough to join the League of Nations, which was a complete failure (just as the primary purpose of the United Nations has failed, completely). When Germany withdrew from the Conference, it fell apart. Why would anyone still talk disarmament when Germany was gearing up for a re-armament? Not a great day for the idealists.
