Page 90. " When the German soldiers came into Cracow "

Cracow fell one week after the invasion of Poland, which began on September 1, 1939. The invasion provoked Britain to declare war on Germany and led to the onset of World War II. It was initiated by the Fourteenth German Army, and ultimately saw Cracow become the capital of the Nazi Government in Poland.
