Are you familiar with the concept of Lebensraum?  Are you familiar with Hitler's routine?  He would make a reasonable demand and then manipulate the situation to get an unreasonable result.  If Hitler got Danzig and the Corridor, he then would have pressed forward to get the rest of Poland.  When he took the Sudetenland, he went on to establish a "protectorate" over Bohemia and Moravia and strong-armed the leaders of Slovakia.  He forcefully conquered Austria.  Etc., etc.  And what Hitler did to Poland once he conquered it shows well enough what his intentions were:  annexation and German colonization.  His henchmen even abducted "Aryan-looking" Polish children and sent them to Germany to be raised by Germans as Germans.  

The Austrians voted him in, and happily too; he did not conquer Austria. As for the Sudentenland, the French abondoned it and Hitler ordered his troops to depart it if there was any resistance whatsoever.

The Sudetenland is in France now?  You'd better consult your sources. 
Sorry I got that confused with something else...thousand apologies.....
