plebiscite is held in the Saarland. This is a prosperous region between France
and Germany. Originally German, it had been administered by the League of
Nations after the First World War. The people of the Saar voted by a majority
of 91 percent to return to German control. Although they were 'returning home'
the overwhelming support suggests there was little fear of the Nazis, despite
Hitler's dictorship and two years after the establishment of the concentration
camps in Germany.
