On January 30, 1933 in connection with the situation in Germany to adopt the commander of the Czechoslovak army general Syrový and commander of the French army general Gamelin Poland is planning the joint attack of Czechoslovak armies from Dečín to Lusatia and Poland from Poznan to the Oder. In Cottbus be merged to conclude surrounded by the German army in Silesia. After their capitulation should jointly attack on Berlin. The plan was negated when on January 26, 1934 in Berlin was closed German-Polish non-aggression pact (German-Deutsch Polnischer Nichtangriffspakt), known as the Hitler-Pilsudski pact (German-Hitler-Pilsudski pact), full name Declaration between Germany and Poland not to use violence (German Erklärung zwischen Deutschland und Polen auf über den Verzicht Gewaltanwendung), a non-aggression treaty was concluded between Germany and Poland. Contract signed for 10 years foreign minister Konstantin von Neurath free man, a Polish ambassador in Berlin, Józef Lipski. Rejecting the use of violence, it was not accompanied by a guarantee of immutability of borders, it admitted the possibility of its use in revising the territorial statusquo third countries. The contract did not contain an article on the conditions for suspending its validity and just one of the parties to reject it if the other party finds itself at war with a third country.

The contract had a secret articles, assumed military and diplomatic cooperation against the Soviet Union. Plans of both countries the division of Ukraine (Poland had achieved the Black Sea) and the Baltic republics (Lithuania had in Poland, Latvia and Estonia Germany). The Parties were situated disagree over - the division of Czechoslovakia (Polish dictator Pilsudski and his foreign minister Beck claimed that Czechoslovakia is a non-viable artificial bodies), according to their plans should the Polish case the Czech part of Teschen, Slovakia and Ruthenia should be returned to Hungary with which Poland like to have to have a common border.

Treaty normalize German-Polish relations, burdened by German revisionism to Treaty of Versailles (le Traité de Versailles). Enclosing the contract has negated the possibility of joint military intervention by France, Czechoslovakia and Poland against Germany in the event of a crisis. Award of the contract allowed the mobilization of Polish foreign policy against Czechoslovakia, to which Poland had territorial demands. Reinsurance treaty with Germany, the Poles expelled 13 September 1934 by the Assembly of the League of Nations in Geneva Treaty on the Protection of National Minorities (it was a violation of the Declaration of Nations and the Treaty of Versailles) - to increase the oppression of national minorities in Poland (Russians, Ukrainians, Czechs (of Těšín and Volyň), Lithuanians, Romanians, Germans and Jews). When leaving from Geneva on Sept. 28, 1934 Foreign Minister Beck declared: "Poland declares that henceforth combine their fate to the fate of Germany. The Polish Government declares for free from any obligations to Czechoslovakia and reaffirms its objective to have a common border with Hungary. "

April 28, 1939 Germany unilaterally terminated the contract after Poland rejected the requirement for adjustment of borders in favor of German (It was the Gdansk Corridor). As the official reason for the German side by the Polish-British communiqué of 6 April 1939 on the provision of guarantees concerning British Gdansk. Zmlouvy denunciation by Germany meant the end of construction of Poland\'s foreign policy for the last five years. This policy has helped destroy Czechoslovakia, breaking the Little Entente, weakening the position of France in Central Europe and the world closer to war. The fate of Czechoslovakia, to which the Polish Foreign Minister Józef Beck worked so hard, became the fate of Poland.
