    What gave Hitler arguing points was that there were large German minorities in those areas. West and East Prussia were part of Prussia since the 15th Century, the Posen area of Poland Since 1792, the Sudentenland again since the 15th Century. So they were seen by Germans as part of Germany. After WWII Stalin shifted all borders west. The border for Germany runs along the Oder River now. He also relocated all the Germans in the east to Germany. From 1945 to 1948 over 12 million ethnic Germans were forced out of their homes and sent to Germany. At the time no one lifted an eyebrow because as far as the world was concerned the Germans deserved it. As such none of those areas are considered part of Germany and yes they have accepted the theft.

    The Germans were grateful enough not to be exterminated in the hands of the Russians

    The Germans did try to regain their lost European territories after World War. That's part of what the Nazi sales pitch to the German people was about. They argued that they would be best at restoring Germany to its former glory. Or, to put it another way, they wanted to make Germany great again. But the Nazis also knew, that Germany had no realistic hope of regaining their colonies in sub-Saharan Africa. At least not in the immediate term. Their goal and instead was to create a new Empire in Europe.

    After World War II, the Germans were defeated. The eastern part of the country became a Soviet puppet state. The western part was part of the alliance with France, the US, the UK. Even if the Allies had allowed Germany to attempt to recolonize parts of Africa, the Germans had far more pressing matters than trying to recreate vanish colonies of a generation ago. Furthermore, they had learned how terrible Conquest was from World War II and did not seek to engage in it anymore

    Actually, they did. Germany under Hitler tried to regain regions they'd had to cede after the end of WWI. That didn't work out too well, so they haven't made any further efforts in that direction.

    Germany? What did they lose? A bit of ground here, a bit of ground there?

    WHAT ABOUT MEXICO! You want to talk about theft! Imagine Mexico today, with California, Texas and everything in between (Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, etc.) included! We would dominate the world !

    I don't want to here about theft and Germany. The Germans have become ******* since WWII anyway. Who lets refugees rape their women on New Year's Day anyway?

    • mexico itself is a land built on theft. That was empty America, not mexican land.
