It is this caste 43 THE RUSSIAN FACE OF GERMANY which coined the slogan for the guidance of German national policy: "Down with the Treaty of Versailles", to which in due course the whole German nation submitted. It submitted all the more readily, persuaded as to the righteousness and justice of such a demand, because for three generations all public education in Germany from the elementary schools to the Universities was impregnated with the Prussian spirit, while for a hundred years the most active part of the German educated classes imbued the soul of the German nation with the Hohenzollern legends.
