Languages of publication
The collapse of the Weimar Republic and the seizure of power by Adolf Hitler were significant events in the political history of the German state. A serious economic crisis, the collapse of the old model of power made the Reich adopt the national socialist policy. Alfred Wysocki, a Polish diplomat in Berlin, was a witness of the events. His rich correspondence with the Foreign Office in Warsaw allows us to learn and understand the essence of the changes which in the future led to the outbreak of WWII. The diplomatic representative of Poland was an attentive and versatile observer. His reports described not only actions of the highest German authorities, but also included information about the economic situation in Germany, the development of the Hitler movement and the circumstances of the seizure of power. He also notified of social and political events, and his accounts were often accompanied by the analysis of the described phenomena, which unfortunately was not always correct. Alfred Wysocki was a diplomat who as a representative of Poland did not limit himself only to actions ordered by the Foreign Office in Warsaw. He used his knowledge to suggest solutions to the Polish authorities. Probably Wysocki’s personal independence was the reason for his being moved from Berlin to another diplomatic post.
