Szkice z dziejów autonomii śląskiej w Drugiej Rzeczypospolitej, red. J. Durka, Katowice 2013>136-156
The German message of problematic aspects regarding the termination of the Geneva Convention for Upper Silesia was very inconvenient for Poland. It was supported by the unanimity of German publicists who were concerned about the future of German minority in the Polish state and emphasized the anti-German policy of Polish authorities, especially the local ones. This message unambiguously shaped the public opinion in Germany as in many European countries. Hence, the sense of anxiety and instability of the social policy in the border area was growing. It had a negative impact on Polish-German relations and disturbed their peaceful arrangement in the spirit of the Polish-German Non-Aggression Pact signed on January 26, 1934. This very critical reaction of the German press was an important subject of correspondence between Polish diplomatic posts and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Warsaw. The German propaganda campaign was attentively monitored in 1937. Attempts were made to avoid a conflict that would result in a deep crisis in Polish-German relations.
