When the State works a man from five to twenty years and sometimes longer, and then turns him loose in the world penniless, and in most cases many
miles from his home and friends, it naturally has a tendency to induce him to continue his life of crime. If he doesn't succeed in getting employment

THE WORLD CRISIS
In the 1930s, several international crises led to world war.
Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power in Germany in 1933 and quickly established a ruthless dictatorship. Germany seized Austria in 1938, and
occupied Czechoslovakia in 1938-39. Italy, another dictatorship, attacked Abyssinia (Ethiopia) in 1935 and occupied Albania in 1939. After invading
Manchuria in 1931, Japan attacked China in 1937. Britain and France appeased these brutal regimes in an effort to avoid another world war – a policy
supported by most Canadians.
The Nazis’ military aggression led directly to the Second World War. In August 1939, Germany insisted on territorial concessions from Poland. Finally
abandoning ‘appeasement’, Britain and France pledged to assist the Poles and stop Hitler. On 1 September 1939, Germany invaded Poland and, two days
later, Britain and France declared war on Germany. The Second World War had begun.
