Dystopian and anachronistic map of Nazi New Order.

“A questa prima reazione seguì un'approfondita riflessione politica, movente da un dato che per Rainer era assiomatico: la sicura defezione dell'Italia dal conflitto; doveva giocare in lui la radicata diffidenza dell'austriaco che aveva vissuto la fine della Triplice alleanza. Raccolse e sviluppò con organicità i propositi che gli venivano dalla tradizione austriaca e che avevano incominciato ad affiorare nella sua esperienza di CdZ, e giunse alla conclusione che gli interessi tedeschi esigevano l'allontanamento dell'amministrazione italiana da Lubiana ed una qualche ricostituzione dell'antico ducato di Carniola, cioè la riunificazione di tutta la Slovenia nell'ambito germanico ( avrebbero fatto eccezione soltanto la città di Dravograd Unterdrauburg e la valle della Mesica, appartenenti al territorio carinziano ceduto al regno serbo-croato-sloveno nel 1919). L'idea non era stravagante ma poggiava sul concetto di Land (paese), tipico della tradizione amministrativa austro-ungarica ed anche di quella degli stati successori che nel 1918 avevano fissato i propri confini seguendo piuttosto i limiti storico-geografici dei Lànder che quelli etnici; la stessa amministrazione nazista dell'Austria aveva lasciato quasi dappertutto che i confini dei nuovi Gau seguissero quelli degli antichi Kronlànder”
 ““Si tratta di un concreto progetto di istituzione di una zona di amministrazione germanica. Essa avrebbe dovuto ripristinare ad occidente la frontiera austro-italiana del 1915, considerata la sola rispondente agli effettivi diritti nazionali italiani, e mantenere ad oriente l'esistente confine italo-croato. Poiché la crisi italiana rivalutava l'importanza dello stato di Pavelic, che subito aveva drasticamente espresso la volontà di annettere le antiche terre croate della Dalmazia e dell'Istria, Rainer è cauto nel delineare il confine orientale e non esclude la possibilità di cedere la città di Sussak e fors'anche la contigua Fiume allo stato ustacha in cambio dell'antica isola linguistica tedesca di Tschernembl (Cernomelj). A nord invece il « ricupero » del sangue tedesco esigeva di ridare alla Carinzia la val Canale, come prima del 1918, ed egli sottolinea che quella popolazione aveva già manifestato coi fatti, cioè coll'assunzione diretta degli uffici amministrativi, la volontà di rientrare nella patria tedesca. Per il Gauleiter di Klagenfurt ciò avrebbe rappresentato un tangibile successo, e Rainer ricorda — unica indicazione d'interessi economici contenuta nel telegramma — la presenza in questa zona della miniera di piombo di Raibl. Seguendo la locale partizione dei Länder asburgici (ducato di Carinola, contea di Gorizia e Gradisca, marchesato d'Istria) propone pure la suddivisione della zona in tre circoscrizioni ad essa corrispondenti, ma dicendo che l'unificazione della Slovenia — una parte della quale era stata già assegnata al Reich — era questione da risolvere col tempo, e non menzionando affatto la posizione autonoma e particolare di cui aveva goduto Trieste nello stato austriaco, che non pare ritenesse da doversi ripristinare. Oltre che con motivazioni militari, la costituzione di questa zona è sollecitata con due argomenti storico-politici, entrambi fortemente anti- italiani. Uno è la constatazione del rifiuto che, verso l'amministrazione italiana, avrebbe manifestato la popolazione locale, memore dell'efficienza e dell'equità di quella asburgica, nonché dei secolari rapporti che la regione aveva tenuto col mondo tedesco. Rainer rinviene una prova di questa situazione nel fatto che il governo italiano non aveva saputo risolvere il problema delle opposizioni, sboccato in resistenza armata 31, ma certo forzava l'argomento col presentare i motivi nostalgici esistenti nella pubblica opinione come cosciente orientamento politico. Forse questo suo giudizio, alquanto schematico, aveva come fonte d'informazione qualche residua relazione fra la società giuliana e quella austriaca, ma esso sostanzialmente esprime il rancore che in Austria, nei due decenni precedenti, era emerso verso gli stati che si erano divisa l'eredità asburgica e verso le loro classi dirigenti, alla cui incapacità veniva sbrigativamente addebitato il generale scadimento economico ed amministrativo della Mitteleuropa danubiana. Questo atteggiamento, di fatto, era una prosecuzione della tradizionale alterigia con cui la borghesia tedesca considerava quella italiana, strutturalmente più incerta e meno capace. L'altra motivazione addotta da Rainer per perorare la nuova amministrazione germanica è quella etnica — già all'inizio del telegramma egli denomina la regione come « territorio mistilingue non italiano » — ed egli utilizza le tesi austrofile scontate e popolari, abbondanti nella pubblicistica asburgica sia austriaca che locale, che insistevano sull'aspetto di « mosaico etnico » che la regione presentava secondo certi criteri dell'etnologia positiva. Egli rimarca la per altro modesta e da tempo declinante presenza in Istria dei gruppi istrorumeni (cici) e dei morlacchi e, soprattutto, dà rilievo alla « friulanità » come entità etnica e culturale ladina autonoma, ben differenziata dall'italianità.”
“Nell'agosto del '43 ebbi l'idea della « Carniola autonoma » senza Dravograd e senza la valle di Mezica. Lo proposi a Himmler e successivamente persino a Hitler. Himmler mi disse che le intenzioni di Hitler erano ben più lungimiranti.”
 “Ancora prima della capitolazione dell'Italia mi venne l'idea di unire le regioni dell'antico ducato di Carniola, dando a questa un'autonomia amministrativa e culturale, ma sempre nell'ambito del Reich. I trasferimenti della popolazione sarebbero così dovuti cessare. Nel paese sarebbero rimaste le forze armate e i reparti della polizia tedesca. Himmler rimase concorde su tutto.”
 (Il Movimento di liberazione in Italia)

„Auf dieser Grundlage schlug Rainer die Errichtung einer Zivilverwaltung vor, als deren Chef er sich selbst anbot. Dies in einem Gebiet, das im Westen durch die ehemalige österreichische Grenze vor St. Germain, im Osten durch die alte kroatisch-krainische Grenze, irrtümlich, da Rainer das Gebiet von Fiume mit einbezog, umschlossen werden sollte. Fiume plante Rainer dem kroatischen Staat in einer zukünftigen Regelung anzubieten und es gegen das Gebiet von Tschernembl auszutauschen. Bis dahin sollte die damalige kroatische Grenze weiterbestehen. Das vorgeschlagene Zivilverwaltungsgebiet wäre in drei Gebiete zu unterteilen gewesen, einerseits Krain mit Laibach, andererseits das ehemalige Küstenland, geteilt in Istrien mit Triest und Görz (mit Einschluß von Gradisca).“

„Dokument Nr. 3 Telegramm Geheim aus Klagenfurt Nr. 2366 vom 9. 9. 1943. Sehr geehrter Herr Reichsminister. Über Aufforderung durch Herrn Gesandten von Sonnleithner übermittle ich nachstehende Vorschläge über die Gestaltung des gemischtsprachigen nichtitalienischen Gebietes zwischen Kärnten und der Adria: Die klarste Lösung bei Respektierung des italienischen Nationalgefühls wäre die Wiederherstellung der österreichisch-italienischen Grenze von 1914. Diese Grenze verläuft von den karnischen Alpen südlich des Kanaltales zwischen Pontafel und Pontebba hindurch über die Ausläufer der julischen Alpen westlich des Isonzo und erreicht bei Aquileja die Adria. Die Ostgrenze wäre die alte kroatisch-krainische Grenze von der Save südwestlich über den Kamm des Uskokengebirges zum Lauf der Kulpa und zur Adria östlich Fiume. Einer Regelung mit Kroatien wäre vorzubehalten die Rückgabe von Susak auch die Übergabe von Fiume an den kroatischen Staat, während Kroatien als Gegenleistung das 1941 von Krain abgetrennte Gebiet von Tschernembl (alte deutsche Sprachinsel) dem deutschen Verwaltungsgebiet zurückgibt. Bis zur Grenzregelung mit Kroatien empfehle ich, einfach die bestehende kroatisch-italienische Grenze als Ostgrenze des deutschen Verwaltungsgebietes zu übernehmen. Die Nordgrenze ist die bestehende Reichsgrenze, die Südgrenze die Adria. Innerhalb dieses Raumes würde das Kanaltal wieder an Kärnten zurückfallen. In ihm wohnen rund 7000 Volksdeutsche. Die Hauptstadt ist Tarvis. Wichtig ist der Bleibergbau in Raibl. Das Gebiet ist seit heute mittag mit Ausnahme von Raibl durch deutsche Truppen besetzt. Die Volksdeutschen haben die Verwaltung in ihre Hand genommen. Das übrige deutsche Verwaltungsgebiet zerfällt in folgende drei Teile: 1. Die Provinz Laibach mit rund 400.000 Einwohnern, lauter Slowenen. Hier würde ich in weiterer Folge die Wiedervereinigung von Ober-, Inner- und Unterkrain zu einem deutschen Schutzgebiet Krain vorschlagen. 2. Die ehemalige Grafschaft Görz und Gradisca mit rund 300.000 Einwohnern und der Hauptstadt Görz, wovon etwa 100.000 Slowenen, etwa 50.000 Italiener und etwa 150.000 Furlaner sind. 3. Das alte Istrien mit der Hauptstadt Triest mit rund 500.000 Einwohnern, von denen rund 150.000 Slowenen, rund 100.000 Italiener und der Rest Tschitzen und Morlaken mit serbokroatischer Sprache sind. In diesem ganzen Gebiet wird die italienische Herrschaft von der Bevölkerung scharf abgelehnt. Die Erinnerung an die österreichisch-ungarische Monarchie und an die tausendjährige Reichsverbundenheit ist noch lebendig. Die Italiener sind mit der Widerstandsbewegung nicht fertig geworden. Diese steigerte sich im letzten Jahre zur organisierten Bildung kommunistischer Banden. Die Sprachgrenzen zwischen Slowenen, Furlanern, Italienern und Serbokroaten sind nicht ausgeprägt. Das Mischungsverhältnis ist ortschaftsweise verschieden, das Gebiet ist daher seit dem Zerbrechen der Reichsgewalt dauerndes Unruhegebiet und kann während des Krieges und späterhin nur dann befriedet werden, wenn es unter deutsche Herrschaft kommt. Eine deutsche Herrschaft würde allenthalben auf Ansatzpunkte der österreichischen Tradition stoßen. Altösterreichische Beamte, Lehrer und Offiziere aller vier Nationalitäten sind  vorhanden und könnten im Rahmen der deutschen Zivilverwaltung zur Mitarbeit herangezogen werden. Ich schlage vor, für dieses Gebiet deutsche Zivilverwaltung einzurichten und als Chef der Zivilverwaltung den Gauleiter in Kärnten mit dem Sitze in Klagenfurt zu bestimmen. Ich würde dann vorschlagen, das CdZ-Gebiet entsprechend den historischen, geographischen und volkspolitischen Verhältnissen in drei Unterverwaltungsgebiete unterzuteilen, und zwar: Krain mit der Hauptstadt Laibach, Görz mit der Hauptstadt Görz und Istrien mit der Hauptstadt Triest. Aufgabe der Zivilverwaltung wäre, die nationalen Verhältnisse zu ordnen und zu beruhigen, den Selbstschutz der Bevölkerung gegen den Bolschewismus zu organisieren und die ganze wirtschaftliche Kraft des Verwaltungsgebietes für den deutschen Endsieg zu mobilisieren. Die Durchführung dieses Programmes erkläre ich für möglich, wenn der Chef der Zivilverwaltung mit entsprechenden Vollmachten durch den Führer ausgestattet wird *." Diesen Vorschlag verteidigte Rainer gegen eine mögliche Lösung, das Gebiet auf zwei Zivilverwaltungen aufzuteilen, da die Politik des Reiches einheitlich hervortreten müßte, wie er auch gegen eventuell beabsichtigte Militärverwaltungen die Notwendigkeit der „Führung mit politischen und propagandistischen Mitteln" hervorhob. Wenn er auch die endgültige Gestaltung dieses Gebietes, besonders die endgültige Grenzziehung gegenüber Oberitalien, der Zeit nach dem Kriege vorbehalten wissen wollte, meinte er doch auf einen „Endzustand" hinarbeiten zu müssen, „die Bildung der Reichsmarken Krain, Görz und Istrien". In Hinblick auf die Westgrenze des durch die Zivilverwaltung zu beherrschenden Raumes wies Rainer noch auf das Friaul hin, wo während der Herrschaft der Regierung Badoglio autonomistische Strömungen unterdrückt worden waren, erklärte sich aber als nicht im Stande, beurteilen zu können, „ob ... in diesem Gebiet eine weitere Entwicklung im Sinne des Reiches schon aktuell ist". Nicht erschien jedoch deutsche Zivilverwaltung Vertretern des Auswärtigen Amtes als opportun; von Laibach aus wurde statt deutscher Zivilverwaltung oder deutscher Militärverwaltung die Schaffung eines „deutschen Protektorates mit slowenischer Selbstverwaltung" dringend empfohlen, das Deutsche Konsulat in Triest riet hinwiederum von jeder Trennung der „mindestens dreihunderttausend….“

“Di particolare interesse risultano le considerazioni sulle intenzioni annessionistiche del Reich nei confronti delle Operationszone Adriatisches Kiistenland e Alpenvorland, a copertura delle quali sarebbe stata creata una nuova Zona d'Operazione, quella delle Alpi nord-occidentali, la cui esistenza evidentemente non si giustificava in termini militari. Sebbene questo documento non abbia ovviamente alcun valore di conferma della linea politica ufficiale nazista relativamente all'OZAK e all'OZAV, esso riflette un'opinione probabilmente diffusa negli alti comandi militari: essi davano ormai per scontata una futura annessione al Reich del Litorale Adriatico e delle Prealpi.”
“La Operationszone Nordwestalpen (Zona d'Operazione Alpi Nord-occidentali) si estendeva lungo tutto l'arco alpino dalla Liguria (esclusa, perché area di competenza dell' LXXXVII. Armee-Korps) al confine con la Operationszone Alpenvorland (BA-MA, RH 24-87/42. mappa "Abschnittseinteilung ab 5.7.1944").“
“Operationszone Nordwestalpen [Zona d'Operazione Alpi Nord-occidentali, ufficialmente creata il 12 febbraio 1944] Nuova creazione, nessun Gauleiter, nessun comandante militare, poteri esercitati dall' Armeegruppe von Zangen, amministrazione diretta dell' A.O.K., appartiene [?] al Generale plenipotenziario [Bevollmachtiger General der deutschen Wehrmacht in Italien, generale Toussaint]. Il motivo della creazione è probabilmente il mascheramento delle intenzioni finali perseguite nelle altre due Zone d'Operazione. Non deve sembrare che ci si voglia tenere il Tirolo e l'Istria.”
(Operationszone Adriatisches Künstenland, by Stefano Di Giusto)

“Per inciso, fu costituita anche una terza Operationszone (Nordwestalpen ) che andava dalla valle Stura nel Cuneese alla val Camonica, la cui esistenza non fu però mai dichiarata apertamente.”
(La società veneta dalla Resistenza alla Repubblica)

„Zehn Provinzen im Nordosten wurden in den beiden Operationszonen „Alpenvorland" und „Adriatisches Küstenland" zusammengefaßt. An deren Spitze standen die Gauleiter der angrenzenden „Reichsgaue" Tirol und Kärnten, Franz Hofer und Friedrich Rainer, die als Oberste Kommissare direkt Hitler unterstellt waren (Dok. 170). In beiden Operationszonen, vor allem im „Alpenvorland" (Südtirol), wurde die Führung der deutschen Minderheit mit der Durchführung eines großen Teils der Besatzungspolitik beauftragt (Dok. 169,, 196, 197, 199). Das Deutsche Reich verwaltete beide Zonen wie deutsche Provinzen und begann unverzüglich mit der „Germanisierung" (Dok. 197). Entlang der Schweizer und der französischen Grenze entstand aus einem etwa 50 km tiefen Streifen die Operationszone „Nordwest-Alpen", die direkt dem Armeeoberkommando 14 unterstand (Dok. 220). Die Bildung der Operationszonen, in denen wertvolle Bodenschätze gefördert wurden (Dok. 220), galt allgemein als Vorstufe einer späteren Annexion, um die deutsche Grenze bis an das Mittelmeer zu verschieben (Dok. 197, 199, 348, 350). In dem Territorium zwischen den Operationszonen und dem Frontgebiet amtierte zunächst eine deutsche Militärverwaltung, die die italienische Wirtschaft und Verwaltung in großem Umfang von Badoglio- Anhängern und Antifaschisten „säuberte", „tabula rasa" machte, wie Goebbels seinem Tagebuch anvertraute.“
 „Aus dem Befehl von Generalfeldmarschall Wilhelm Keitel an Generalfeldmarschall Albert Kesselring, Oberbefehlshaber Südwest, vom 20. Dezember 1943 zur Bildung der Operationszone „Nordwest-Alpen" 1 . Das ital. Alpengebiet längs der Schweizer und französischen Grenze wird in einer Tiefe von etwa 50 km zur Operationszone erklärt. Die Zone schließt im Osten an die Operationszone Alpenvorland an und dehnt sich an der französischen Grenze bis zur Küste des Ligurischen Meeres aus ... 3. Von der Einsetzung eines Obersten Kommissars für die Operationszone Nordwest- Alpen wird vorerst abgesehen. ...”

“Following the “German national and cultural soil” thesis in order to trace future German borders—a theory that in prewar Germany had already been opposed to an etatistic conception of the nation—Kurt Trampler, then assistant of the Südost-Institut (Southeast Institute) in Munich, stated in 1934 that “in the South, the border of [German] culture stretches significantly beyond the ethnic border: incontestably it includes the Romansh and Ladinian regions as well as the Slavic foreland of Carinthia and Styria.”
“Later on, together with Wilhelm Sattler, he elaborated a repertory of place names to be used in the future annexation of the territories of Lower Styria, Mezˇisˇka Valley (German: Mießtal), and the Prekmurje region.”
“In a telegram to Foreign Minister von Ribbentrop, dated 9 September 1943, Gauleiter Rainer considered the future institution of Reich protectorates in Gorizia County, Istria, and Carniola.53 Shortly afterwards, an analogous system was even considered for Friuli.”
“The “repatriation” of Germans from South Tyrol and the Kanal Valley (province of Udine) was agreed on. Even the Ladinians from South Tyrol and the province of Belluno were included in the “repatriation” program, which was finally extended to the German linguistic exclaves in the province of Trento (the Fersina Valley and Luserna).”
”Projects concerning resettlement and germanizing measures in northern Moravia, the Warthegau (Poland), Alsace, and Lorraine were rapidly dropped without becoming concrete. A feasibility study, however, was made for settling the South Tyroleans in the Beskid Mountains and in their northern foreland down to the Vistula River in Poland.”
”Subsequently, alternative resettlement and germanizing projects focused on Burgundy (France), Slovenia (Upper Carniola and Lower Styria), and the Crimea, whereas for the Ladinians from the Gardena Valley (German: Grödnertal) resettlement in East Tyrol and, later, in Northern Styria (the Hochschwab Mountains) was considered.”
“Since scholars such as University of Vienna professor Richard Wolfram, one of the leading figures of “germanocentric” SS folklore studies, considered Germanic “continuity as permanence of 'national substance,'”94 the asserted Lombard origins of the linguistic exclaves in northern Italy, in the ultimate analysis, were to prove ancient and primogenitary entitlements for German dominion in this area. . The Trentino was thus looked upon as an italianized part of the “German cultural and living sphere.”95 It is noteworthy that the Ahnenerbe as well as the “Prehistory” branch of the “Rosenberg Office” made additional efforts to extend Lombard studies—especially the archeo- logical ones—to all of northern Italy.”
“Apparently influenced by the then Gauleiter of Salzburg Friedrich Rainer, Maier-Kaibitsch, in his function as chief of the Gaugrenzlandamt (Provincial Borderland Office) in Klagenfurt composed several memoranda, in July and August 1940, claiming to annex border regions of Carniola. In July 1940, Maier-Kaibitsch asked for the annexation of the MezˇisˇkaValley and the district of Jesenice (German: Aßling); on 21 August 1940, for that of the districts of Radovljica (German: Radmannsdorf), Kranj (German: Krainburg), and Kamnik (German: Stein). Finally, in an undated memorandum by Gauleiter Kutschera, presumably composed by the same Maier-Kaibitsch, the annexation of all Carniola and of the regions round Slovenj Gradec (German: Windischgraz), Radlje (German: Mahrenberg), and Gornji Grad (German: Oberburg) was proposed; see Ferenc, Quellen, 14ff., 22ff., 30f.”

"Finally, in return to for Yugoslavia’s co-operation n the consolidation of Europe, Hitler offered Yugoslavia the Greek harbor of Salonika and therewith an outlet to the Aegean. If Yugoslavis rejected this offers, Hitler indicated that he could not vouch for the policy of Italy."

“Nedic's greatest priority, however, was the creation of Greater Serbia, which had also preoccupied the preceding Acimovic administration. Indeed, during June, 1941 , the Government of Commissars had sent a memorandum to Gen. Ludwig von Schroder, the military commander in Serbia, stating the need "to give the Serbian people its centuries-old ethnographic borders.” From December, 1941, Nedic repeatedly advocated the creation of Greater Serbia in his public speeches and in private discussions with the German occupation officials. Nedic's plans for expansion included the entire Dalmatian coast of Croatia, all of Bosnia-Herzegovina (except the predominantly Muslim-populated northwest province of Bihac), Croatia's eastern Slavonia, all of Vojvodina (except the German-populated province of Banat), all of Macedonia, all of Montenegro, and part of Albania. Nedic began seeking an audience with Hitler as early as the end of 1941”
“In a three-hour meeting with Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribben- trop, Nedic demanded an increase in his own authority and the expansion of Serbia's borders. According to the minutes of this meeting, Nedic specifically asked for more Lebensraum (living space) for the Serbian people. He proposed the annexation of Montenegro, the Sandzak, eastern Bosnia, Srijem, and, most especially, Kosovo. Von Ribbentrop refused to discuss the issue of expanding the border of Serbia — or of any other occupied country, for that matter — while the war was in progress, but suggested that Serbia would be independent after the war. By the end of the meeting, Nedic was so agitated that Hermann Neubacher, the recently appointed German Foreign Office plenipotentiary for Southeast Europe, intervened to calm him. Neubacher was himself an advocate for a Serbian federation encompassing Serbia, the Sandzak, and Montenegro. He suggested to von Ribbentrop that, rather than permit Nedic's meeting to end unsuccessfully, Nedic should meet with Hitler.”
“Hitler, however, made no concession on Greater Serbia.”
“Neubacher continued to lobby the German command for a larger Serbia as serving Germany's military and political interests. Furthermore, a group of German high officers around Neubacher — including Gen. Hans- Gustav Felber and Field Marshal Maximilian von Weichs, the military commander of Southeast Europe from August, 1943 — supported the creation of a Serbian unit which would include Serbia, Montenegro, and the Sandzak. Later, the German supporters of Greater Serbia envisioned it to encompass Srijem, eastern Bosnia to the Bosna River, and Kosovo. In a meeting of December 14, 1943, Hitler expressed his willingness to consider Neubacher's proposal for a Greater Serbian Federation. Nevertheless, in August, 1944, when Germany's military situation was worsening on all fronts, when Tito's Partisans were beginning to build up strength in Serbia, and when Hitler's military staff was proposing a plan for the unification of all of the Serbian nationalist forces under Nedic, Mihailovic, and Ljotic against the Communist-led Partisans, Hitler railed against the "danger of a Greater Serbia," even suggesting that Communism was more acceptable. Just weeks before Nedic's long-awaited visit to Hitler, Milosav Vasiljevic, a prominent follower of Ljotic, independently submitted to the German authorities his own proposal for Greater Serbia, a memorandum titled "Deutsch-serbische Verstandigung" (The German-Serbian Understanding). Describing the Independent State of Croatia as unstable and powerless to effect order and peace over its territory, the memorandum called for the creation of an "Independent State of Serbia" to be a committed ally of the Third Reich. The memorandum further proposed "a solemn declaration of gratitude and respect of the Serbian people toward the Fuhrer for the liberation of the Serbian Independent State from Yugoslavia and its other enemies." The Greater Serbian state was envisioned to extend as far as the Dalmatian coast of Croatia, the northern Albanian city of Shkoder, and the Greek port city of Salonika.” (Serbia's Secret War: Propaganda and the Deceit of History, by Philip J. Cohen, David Riesman)

Das Gebiet ostwärts der Theiß wird zunächst unter deutschen Schutz gestellt, ebenso das Gebiet südl. der Donau ostw. der allgemeinen Linie Morava-Mündung in die Donau — Pozarevac — Petrovac — Boljavac — Knjazevac — Kalna.

"Das den Ungarn in der ersten Zusammenstellung noch zugestandene „serbische Banat" ostwärts der Theiß wurde als Teil eines „besonderen deutschen Schutzgebietes" geplant. Damit hatte der Einspruch der Rumänen gegen den Einmarsch der Ungarn ins Banat auch seine Auswirkung auf die „Gestaltung der Verhältnisse nach dem militärischen Sieg über Jugoslawien gewonnen. Die weitere Begrenzung des „deutschen Schutzgebietes" südlich der Donau wurde mit der Linie Morava-Mündung-Pozarevac-Petrovac-Boljevac-Knjazevac-Kalna angegeben.

Darüber hinaus war auch für den restlichen Teil Serbiens eine Militärverwaltung unter dem OKH vorgesehen.“

“Further on Frensing continues: "It was the desire of the Gottscheer leadership to be 'annexed' to the Reich in case the south-Slavic state collapsed. This was already apparent among the ethnic Germans in Slovenia during the March 1939 unrest when they openly demanded annexation after the occupation of the 'Rest-tschechoslowakei' (rest of Czechoslovakia). One member of the Gottscheer leadership had even sent a telegram to Hitler from Graz on April 13, 1939 in which he requested Anschluß (annexation). It expressed concern about the incorporation of Gottschee by Italy, which had just attacked Albania."

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------CROATIA---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 “Hitler’s intentions toward Croatia had originally also seemed quite clear. Croatia was to be granted a nominal autonomy, but it was assigned to the Italian sphere of influence and was thus relegated to the status of an Italian satellite state. Although Germany mantained an army of occupation in the eastern half of the country, there is no evidence that Hitler intended to use these forces to retain permanent control over the German zone of occupation or retract his promise to turn the entire country over to Italy. Hitler made this concession with considerable regret, for he believed that the Croats were more Germanic than Slav and admired them as a proud people, unshakable in their friendship, their oaths eternally binding. If they were part of the Reich they would be valuable auxiliaries to police the frontier marches. In 1942 he expressed the wish that he had them as allies in Russia in place of the Rumanians. It would be highly desirable to Germanize them, but for political reasons-by which Hitler clearly meant Germany’s relationship with Italy-this was “absolutely out of the question.”
“Had Germany won the war he might well have inaugurated a program of Germanizing the Croats and making their country a frontier march or even an integral part of the Reich
(Hitler’s War Aims, the establishment of the New Order, Norman Rich)

“While the existence of the Reich’s armed might would prevent attempts at large-scale, government-backed rebellion in the Southeast, the Germans could not be content with such purely negative control if their detailed substantive plans were to bear fruit. Among the positive control devices, the SS-sponsored schemes to re-establish the old Autro-Hungarian Militärgrenze, and the activities of the Volkdeutsche in the New Order would have involved the most direct extension of German influence into the political and economic life of the Balkan nations. The former was an adaptation of Himmler’s and Hitler’s plans for the East. A series of nationally and religiously homogeneous villages, peopled by SS-approved Balkan Wehrbauern, would have guarded the approaches to the Reich in Bosnia and on the Dalmatian coast. These areas would in effect have become German colonial territory, inhabited by a Nazified population fiercely loyal to the SS, Hitler, and the Reich.”
(The Nazis in the Balkans: a case study of totalitarian politics, by Dietrich Orlow)

“With regard to German-Croatian relations in the post-war period, Hitler said that a closer connection should be established between the Reich and Croatia, with some type of autonomous position for Croatia.”
“He foresaw the incorporation of Croatia into the Reich, that is, into a German protectorate. His opinion was that the Reich could 'only superficially' collaborate with the existing Croatian government. In contrast to the Croats, Hitler acknowledged the Serbs' ability to have and maintain a state. He was convinced, however, that they would always favour the idea of an expansionist Serbia, and for this reason Germany would invariably view them as its enemies.”
(Bosnia And Herzegovina In The Second World War, by Enver Redžić)

“As regards Croatia, Hitler's position was quite clear. In a talk with the commander for the- southeast, he expressed his opinion that "the Croats have no idea about statehood.... Whoever has gone for 500 years without it can never develop into a state. At some point in the future we shall incorporate Croatia into the Reich, or turn it into a protectorate. Today we can only make a pretence of going along with the present Croatian government." Hitler had quite a different perspective as regards the Serbs, describing them as a "nation which is preordained to have its own state and which is trustworthy as a people. If today we were to reestablish Serbia, Croatia would be ruined.... If we were to agree to the Serbian offer and make weapons and ammunition available to them, I believe that the Serbs would successfully combat Tito.”
(Genocide in Yugoslavia, by Smilja Avramov)

“The only solution to the disaster that is Croatia is to take advantage of Croat pretensions that they are Germans, to annex Croatia and impose German law and order. There is no other solution (Neubacher to Hitler, 29 October 1943)”
 “Given the fact that many of Croatia’s ethnic German are now Germans and only Germans, Croatia will soon be a German province and NDH will stand for Neue Deutsche Heimat (IC, 6 October 1942).”
“There is no place for so-called Croats rights and interests on the Adriatic. The towns of Susak and Rijeka will be parts of a new political-administrative unit…a center of Germandom on the Adriatic (Hitler to Horstenau, 9 January 1943).”
“Hitler has written off the NDH…In Neubacher’s words, Bosnia must go to Serbia, Croatia to Germany. Ribbentrop instructs Kasche to explore Croat support for Germany’s annexation of Croatia (Horstenau’s notes on a meeting with Hitler and chief advisers, 9 January 1944).”
“My plans are to establish a new SS Military Frontier, centered in Bosnia-Hercegovina, including parts of Croatia and Srem (Himmler to General, Arthur  Phleps, Commander, SS-Freiwillingen-Gebirgs-Division Prinz Eugen, 5 May 1944).”
(Croatia: Ludwig von Gaj and the Croats are Herrenvolk Goths Syndrome, by Ivo Vukcevich)

The " Germanic " Croats and Slovenes Friedrich Husserl, on Radio Cologne, in German (25.4.41), categorically claimed Slovenia as a German district where, before the last war, there had been a German majority. Dr. Friedrich Rainer, Gauleiter of Carinthia, Chief of Civil Administration in north-west German-occupied Yugoslavia, claimed in a speech (quoted in Swiss report, 5.10.42) that the inhabitants of Northern Slovenia were of German blood. He declared that on October 1 they became subjects of the Greater German Reich, and that men will be conscripted for the German Army. Volkischer Beobachter, 13.4.41 : " Croat scientists nowadays deny the Slav character of their people and see in the Croats of to-day the descendants of the original Illyrian population and of Gothic and other Germanic tribes."

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------BOSNIA---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“The Bosnian Muslims claimed that they, as descendants of the Goths, had a special identity and deserved special treatment.”
(War and Revolution in Yugoslavia: 1941 - 1945, by Jozo Tomasevich)

 “Himmler and his ilk also theorized that Bosniaks, who were the descendants of the ancient sixth century Goths, had shown their bravery in World War I as part of the Austro-Hungarian army.”
(The Death Camps of Croatia: Visions and Revisions, 1941-1945, by Raphael Israeli)

“Finally, Himmler could comfort himself with the invention that the Bosnian Moslems were actually ethnically Croats, who were actually an offshoot of the Goths, and thus Germanic after all.”
(Waffen-SS military units in Estonia, Croatia and the Polish Ukraine, by Bruce B. Campbell)

“Himmler cunningly cloaked the ethnicity of the proposed recruits by alluding to the Italian anthropological investigations of the early 1930s that indicated that the Bosnians were actually descendants of Aryan Gothic invaders and not native Slavs - utter nonsense with no basis in fact. However it did make their recruitment more palatable to the racially obsessed Nazis.”
(Hitler's Jihadis: Muslim volunteers of the Waffen-SS, by Jonathan Trigg)

“A formal appeal asking Hitler to annex Bosnia - Herzegovina and afford the Muslims protection from their enemies was drafted on 1 November and sent to Berlin. Hitler apparently had little interest in taking Bosnia into the Reich. One can only speculate as to his reaction to the appeal; he probably demurred owing to a reluctance to mix in the internal politics of his Croatian ally, despite the potentially positive effects such a merger could have had on neutral Turkey.”
(Himmler's Bosnian Division, by George Lepre)
 
“A group of Bosnian Muslims sent Hitler a memorandum dated 1 November 1942, that stressed their Gothic roots, decried Ustasa killings in Bosnia, asked to expand the Muslim Volunteer Legion, and sought “an autonomous Bosnian region under the direct supervision of the Wehrmacht.”
(Crimes of State Past and Present, by David M. Crowe)

“Autonomists appealed to the Germans on racial grounds. Contradicting the notion that Muslims were the purest of the Aryan Croats, the petitioners told Hitler, We are of Gothic origin, and that binds us to the German people. We adhered to our old Gothic Aryan religion under the name of Bogomilism, which we maintained until the arrival of the Turks in 1463, when we converted to Islam.”
“The autonomists asked Hitler to form a "region of Bosnia" under German patronage and to ban the Ustasha within its borders. Furthermore, the petitioners proposed that the Germans organize and provide arms for a Bosnian guard, which they envisioned as an expansion of the already-existing volunteer legion under the command of Uzeir Hadzihasanovic (one of the founders of the Committee of National Salvation) and an embryonic army for the "region of Bosnia.””
(Sarajevo: A Biography, by Robert J. Donia)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------ALBANIA---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“The German Foreign Minister, Joachim von Ribbentrop, telephoned to Dr. Hermann Neubacher, the German Minister of State in the Balkans, in Belgrade and told him that the Fiihrer desired "an Albania independent on its own initiative". September i ith85 Dr. Hermann Neubacher flew to Albania, and the independence of the country was proclaimed under the auspices of the Germans. The following proclamation of the commander-in-chief of the German troops, Field-Marshal von Weichs, was addressed to the Albanians: The occupation of Albania was very necessary. We come to Albania not as enemies but as friends, and therefore there is no reason why you should be afraid. We shall leave Albania as soon as we consider it necessary. We shall leave you free in all your internal affairs and shall not interfere with them. We ask for your obedience, and those who do not obey will be punished. Representatives of the quisling Albanian government and of anti- Communist Albanians in Kosove met in the city of Prizren and founded the Second League of Prizren, for the purpose of securing the incorporation of Kosove within a 'Greater Albania’.”
(Albania in the Twentieth Century, A History, by Owen Pearson)

Die »Mohammedaner«, »Albaner« oder »Turkotsamiden«, wie sie meist genannt wurden, setzten auf die deutschen Versprechungen, daß die Präfektur Thesprotia, die sogenannte Tsamouria, nach Kriegsende in »ein freies, selbständiges Albanien« eingegliedert werde. Und genauso wie zuvor die Italiener schürte auch Stettner die jahrhundertealte Abneigung, ja den Haß unter den beiden Bevölkerungsgruppen, indem er vorschlug, die »Albaner durch geschickte Propaganda« und mit dem » Versprechen eines freien albanischen Staates sicher auf die Seite Deutschlands zu ziehen«.
(Blutiges Edelweiß: die 1. Gebirgs-Division im Zweiten Weltkrieg, by Hermann Frank Meyer)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------BULGARIA---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Bulgaria was enraged in a minor border dispute with Turkey over a small but strategic area near Edirne that had been Greek before Operation Marita. The important railroad line from Central Europe to Istambul ran through this area, and since tha land had been Bulgarian before 1919, the Bulgarians naturally expected that it woud be returned to them. However, Germany wanted to use this land to pacify Turkey and reward it for remaining neutral during Marita. Boris justifiably complained that “Bulgaria, as an active ally, was entitled to more consideration than a country allied to the enemy.”
“German propaganda had tried for a decade to undermine this sympathy for Russia, and on the eve of Operation Barbarossa Hitler had even suggested that Bulgaria should change from the Cyrillic to the Latin alphabet in order to lessen Russian influence. The Germans had also launched a minor propaganda campaign to convince the Bulgarians that they were not really Slavs and thus were not ethnically connected to the Russians. This theory was not without basis. The traditional view that a small group of Turkic warriors, the Bulgars, had been quickly submerged in a Slavic majority in the seventh century was not fully satisfactory. Moreover, since the date, the Slavic stock had been repeatedly diluted by mixing with other Balkan ethnic groups. Whatever may be the thruth in this complex area, the Germans and pro-German writers went much too far in claiming that the invading Bulgars had destroyed almost all the Slavs inhabiting what is now Bulgaria.”
“Although the Bulgarian government considered Macedonia an integral part of Bulgaria from the first, the territory’s status was not so clear to Germany. Hitler had privately indicated that Macedonia should eventually be granted to Bulgaria, but the official German position was that “the fate of the various regions belonging to Yugoslavia will not be settled definitely until later, at the conclusion of peace. At present, therefore, no statements can be made regarding the future boundaries of Macedonia.”
“The Italians wished to expand from their Albanian enclave into western Macedonia to avail themselves of the mineral wealth of the region-chromiun, tin, manganese, antimony, and molybdenum-and to enlarge the Roman imperium. The German government realized, however, that obtaining these war-essential minerals for itself would be easier if Bulgaria rather than Italy controlled the region. The boundaries of the Bulgarian occupation zone announced on April 17, 1941, were thus reasonably favorable to Bulgaria-although many Bulgarians were disappointed-and were expanded on May 15 to include the ancient Bulgarian shrine of Ohrid on the Albanian border.”
(Bulgaria during the Second World War, by Marshall Lee Miller)

“On the other hand, the German occupiers adopted a short-lived policy of considering the Slavic Macedonians as a lost Germanic people and setting up a marionette state for them. Hitler also entertained great sympathies for the Turks and, in his Tischgespräche (table talk), referred to Mustafa Kemal (Atatiirk) as being of Germanic descent.”
(German Colonialism: Race, the Holocaust, and Postwar Germany, by Volker Langbehn, Mohammad Salama)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------HUNGARY & ROMANIA---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I have received a report about the fate of German minorities in Hungary. The Hungarians still dare to commit acts of effrontery toward us that go far beyond what we can stand for. I suppose, however, we must keep quiet for the moment. We are dependent upon them. But every one of us is yearning for the moment when we can really talk turkey to the Hungarians."
(The Goebbels Diaries)

“Our present relations with Roumania are good, but nobody knows what they will be at any future time. This we have to consider and we have to draw our frontiers accordingly. One ought not to be dependent on the good will of other people; we have to plan our relations with Roumania in accordance with this principle.”
(Avalon Project)

"But it was not only the military commanders who described the Germans thus: the chief of Ciano’s cabinet, Blasco Lanza d’Ajeta, alleged the existence of a Nazi plan whereby, on conclusion of the war, ‘Great Germany’ would reunite all the territories that had belonged to Austria-Hungary before the First World War, includin Fiume, Gorizia and Istria. The Reich, he claimed, was ready to conquer these territories and others besides. Amedeo Mammalella, consul in Dubrovnik (Ragusa), declared that the ‘blatant German raid on the Adriatic’ was intended to ‘create a new Austria-Hungary’."
(Fascism's European empire: Italian occupation during the Second World War, Davide Rodogno)

The day will come when the Viennese idea will be proved to be right. In the ten thousand cafés of Vienna, this is how the Hungarian problem is envisaged: "Hungary belongs to us, and the people in Berlin know nothing about it. It was we who liberated the Hungarians from the Turks, and order will not be restored in Hungary until we liberate the country again. So why on earth don't we take it over and have done with it! And the Slovenes? It is no doubt fine that they should be independent; but after all they, too, belong to us!" Vienna is becoming more pan-Germanic than the Germans themselves ! They are inspired by the feeling that they have a mission to fulfil—and we might just as well egg them on a little. Belgrade used to be a miserable little collection of hovels; it was Prince Eugene who brought fame to the city.
(Hitler's Table Talk)

“In late August Hitler told some close associates that the irreducible boundaries of the Reich and surrounding colonial dependencies were, until the time came for reconquest in the east, to be the Somme to the west, the Alps to the south, southern Norway to the north and in the east along the front between the Baltic and the Carpathian mountains, including western Hungary.”
(War Aims in the Second World War: The War Aims of the Major Belligerents by Victor Rothwell)

“Moreover, the Pan- German maps which are disseminated in Western Hungary, showing the frontiers of the Nazi Empire to be the River Tisa, are disturbing facts for a country which looks back proudly on a thousand years of history.”
(The Central European observer, by Joseph Hanč, F. Souček, Aleš Brož)

“In spite of plans to annex western Hungary, Hitler decided to leave the German-Hungarian boundaries unchanged because he needed a reliable eastern ally. In 1940 Hugo Jury demanded the annexation of Sopron, Koszeg, Mosonmagyaro- var, and St. Gotthard, an area which would restore the destroyed lines of communication and the natural market for the Burgenland. Based on documents in the Politisches Archiv des Auswartigen Amtes, Bonn, and secondary sources; 24 notes.”
(Historical abstracts: Twentieth century abstracts, American Bibliographical Center)

“Hungarian fears were voiced in the Hungarian Parliament by Miksa Fenyo and Karoly Rassay, even before the Anschluss. While Fenyo referred to the conquering gods of the Teutonic or Wagnerian Walhalla, Rassay warned: "if Germany launches its drive to expand in this direction, and this drive succeeds over the corpse of Austria, then the role of Hungary in history will be that of the weakest of all colonies. In a way, the invasion had already started; German tourists visiting Hungary spent time visiting ethnic German villages and spreading Hitler's ideas; the annexation of Transdanubia, they implied, will be Hitler's feat. Here we are primarily concerned with how Hungary fits or does not fit into the German Mitteleuropa scheme. Basically, we may distinguish between economic and political integration. Although for a while, as Gyorgy Ranki had pointed out, the Nazi government was willing to relinquish Southeastern Europe, including Hungary, to Italy as a sphere of influence, this magnanimity no longer applied once the plans for the attack on the Soviet Union crystallized. Indeed there were a number of half-baked projects on the German side. Thus the Volksdeutsche Mittelstelle, under the Reichsführer SS, elaborated a plan in 1939 for the deportation of Hungarians from Transdanubia, and the settlement of the area by ethnic Germans. There was also a plan to settle both banks of the Danube south of Mohacs with Germans. The Reichstelle fur Raumordnung elaborated a plan for the extension of Germany as far as Lake Balaton and the city of Gyor — Hungary to be compensated along her eastern borders. Dr. Hugo Jury, the Gauleiter for the "Lower Danube," submitted several memoranda regarding the incorporation of the northwestern town of Sopron into the Reich. Hungarian statesmen had to be reassured on this score. The intent to annex Hungarian territory was categorically denied by Hermann Goring in 1937, and again, in the midst of the war, by Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop. Hitler himself rarely made use of the term Mitteleuropa. Late in the war, in 1944, he told General Bela Miklos, that he was determined to maintain "die mitteleuropaische Position unter alien Umständen..." He would not refrain from resorting to the most drastic measures, if necessary. The only way to save the German minority in Hungary from "rabid Hungarian nationalism," insisted Hitler, is by "taking over control of the state." If anything, Hitler's Tischgesprache provide evidence that at the highest level there was no plan to incorporate Hungary into the Third Reich.”
(20th century Hungary and the great powers, by Ignác Romsics)

“The Volksdeutsche Mittelstelle had worked out a plan at the beginning of the war for evicting the Magyars altogether from the Dunantul and populating the whole area with Volksdeutsche, who were to be concentrated there from the entire Danubian area. When it was discovered that there would not be enough Volksdeutsche to go round, another suggestion was made to settle with Volksdeutsche a strip 50-100 km. wide along both banks of the Danube from Mohacs to the Black Sea. A third plan reduced this to a strip 35 km. wide, from Orsova to the Black Sea, with German colonies in the strategic key- points, including Belgrade and the Carpathian passes, and this was actually approved by Ribbentrop and Hitler and circulated to the Ministers concerned (Michaelis to C. A. M.).”
(October fifteenth: a history of modern Hungary, 1929-1945, by Carlile Aylmer Macartney)

“The Plan of the Volksdeutsche Mittelstelle (Central Volksdeutscher Office) called for the settlement of Volksdeutschers from southeast Europe on both sides of the Danube downstream from Mohacz within a 50 to 100 km wide zone, which would be narrowed to 35 kilometers in the sector from Orszava to the Danube estuary. The plan had allegedly obtained the approval of Ribbentrop and Hitler and was duly forwarded to the responsible ministries of the Third Reich. This document is not available to us nor has its existence been confirmed. However, the documents dating from 1940 and 1941 in whose preparation the most influential institutions of the Third Reich and leadership of the German national minority in Yugoslavia have taken part are based on the aforementioned thesis.”

Interesting - on an earlier version of this map, Argentina was a German satellite, not an Italian one. I suppose Argentina could've gone either way, considering that two of Argentina's largest ethnic groups were German-Argentines and Argentine-Italians. Then again, maybe Franco would've gotten his hands on the new world, considering Spain's status as the former ruler of much of the Western Hemisphere.
