The idea of setting up Germany to start and loose a brutal war with severe consequences eastward undeniably dovetails with the Jesuit Order's major goal of recapturing lands previously lost to “heretics” such as Lutherans.
From doing research in Pomerania (Pommern), it was thought the Germans in these areas went back very early 11th-13th century and were predominantly Protestant. This is really only true for Pomerania, Brandenburg, and East Prussia. These areas were settled by Germans very early and were predominantly Lutheran (Brandenburg 94 percent, Pomerania 97 percent, East Prussia 86 percent Lutheran in 1880). On the other hand it was not until the partitions of 1772-1795 that Prussia gained territories of Silesia, Posen, and West Prussia and started settling these new territories with Germans. By 1880 under half of the population of Silesia and West Prussia and a third of the population of Posen was Lutheran. Although there were many of Germans who settled these states, they were primarily Polish regions prior to the partitions and had a high Polish population subsequently.Center Against Expulsions Museum in Berlin

Silesia was actually settled by Germans in the 12th century, with the Germans intermarrying with the Slavic S'loonsk.

At this period, Brother Luke speaks of Kolbe saying Mass so “full of grace” that he appeared illuminated by an unearthly radiance” or, as Brother Cyprian Grodizki puts it more prosaically, “he underwent some sort of transformation when celebrating the holy sacrifice.”
Whatever constant joy and transformations imply about Kolbe’s interior life, they did not dull his perceptions. Father Cornel, who had been elected

Father Maximilian had a map of

This could be a lucky guess, but since
’s boundaries shifted rather dramatically, it is more likely the foreknowledge so typically a byproduct of the higher states of mystical consciousness. Many astute observers, however, both sophisticated and simple expected war. John Dagis recalls a Brother saying to him when Hitler first appeared on the scene, “If that man gets power, there will be a terrible war.” Always a discerning observer of sociopolitical currents, Kolbe can be said to have seen war coming as early as 1936, then, without reference to its spirituality. Brilliant tactician that he was, he made his first priority upon his return to Niepokalanow not the technological advances at which he so excelled, but spiritual formation. Says Brother Cyprian: PolandDividing the friars into groups by categories, he gave each group a spiritual director and himself dedicated some months to increasing the Brothers interior depths
Considering the chain of events required to bring that about, such a prediction is eyebrow raising, for it not only requires that
Or was the holocaust, or perhaps more correctly the holocausts – each directed at a different group: modernists, Jewish peoples, Orthodox and Protestant Eastern Germans -- were planned decades in advance by an evil, Orthelloizing genius, involved with manipulating popular opinion through shoddy sensationalistic “journalism”, such as that taking form as the sharp increase of anti-Jewish media in Europe around 1919.
Recall that same area had been under German military occupation in WW1, with that earlier occupation's relatively good reputation leading many to disbelieve accounts of German military atrocities in WW2: whereas the 2nd Reich of Kaiser Wilhelm generally left civilians alone, the 3rd Reich of Hitler went out of its way to massacre the general public. Yet recall the anti 2nd Reich attitude of much of the "mainstream" English language press during the early 1900s, and contrast that with the pro 3rd Reich attitude of that press throughout the 1930s.
The 3rd Reich's atrocities in Poland and the then U.S.S.R. would serve as the basis for the retaliation represented by this border change which was a clear religious demographic benefit and goal of the Roman Catholic Church and the Jesuit Order: a conscious objective as evidenced by the diplomatic insistence on extending WW2 for two additional bloody years, largely via the
