Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Konrad Ernst Eduard Henlein was a leading pro-Nazi ethnic German politician in Czechoslovakia and leader of Sudeten German separatists. After Nazi German annexation of Bohemia he was named Gauleiter, regional party leader, and held that position through the Second World War. Henlein was born in Maffersdorf, Bohemia, Austria-Hungarian Empire, now Vratislavice, Liberec, Czech Republic. In light of his being a leader of the Sudeten German movement, Henlein's origin was not without problems. His mother, Hedvika Anna Augusta Dvo ek, was daughter of a German-speaking mother but her father was Czech. As Henlein pursued a policy against mixed marriages after 1938, he was forced to change his still-living mother's name from Dvo ek to the more German spelling of Dworatschek, which would be thus more comfortable for Henlein's career as a high Nazi officialshow more
