Just inside the Russian Border. Oct. 7, 1939. Exclusive to The Spoof. With the Polish incident over and all Polish resistance at an end, Adolf Hitler today stepped over the line separating German-held Poland from Russian-annexed Poland, and shook the hand of communist dictator Joseph Stalin. This was the first time a German leader had been on Russian soil since the days of Frederick the Great.
The two dictators engaged in jokes, smiles and handshakes before an international assemblage of reporters and cameramen.
Stalin praised the non-aggression pact signed by Germany and Russia in August, and both dictators expressed no doubt that their two nations would honor the agreement.
"I like Joe, He's funny and he knows how to run a country. We have a great relationship, and Russia will greatly benefit from our recent non-aggression pledge," Hitler told reporters. "The Reds now have a guarantee of peace for the next decade, which should be enough time to completely mess up one of their five year plans," he giggled.
