Why die for Kiev?

Combattre aux côtés de nos amis polonais pour la défense commune de nos territoires, de nos biens, de nos libertés, c’est une perspective qu’on peut courageusement envisager, si elle doit contribuer au maintien de la paix. Mais mourir pour Dantzig, non!

Marcel Déat, “Mourir pour Dantzig”, L’Œuvre, 4 May 1939

Do you remember these words?
To fight alongside our Polish friends
for the common defence
of our territories,
of our property,
of our liberties,
this is a perspective
that one can courageously envisage,
if it should contribute
to maintaining the peace.
But to die for Danzig, no!

Do you remember what happened next?
