Germany's leader claims Europe in toughest hour since WWII

The report from Reuters is linked here and the quote referred to in my headline is the following:

Merkel dramatized the situation facing the euro zone in an attempt to rally her conservative party behind the government at a congress in Leipzig.
Europe is in one of its toughest, perhaps the toughest hour since World War Two," she told her Christian Democrats (CDU), saying she feared Europe would fail if the euro failed and vowing to do anything to stop this from happening.

In a one-hour address, Merkel called for closer European political union but offered no new ideas for resolving the crisis that has forced bailouts of Greece,Ireland and Portugal, raising fears about the survival of the 17-state currency zone.

Well that may well mean one thing for her German audience, which presumably were driven to be thinking of 1945, BUT for the rest of the Continent it leaves a crucial point hanging unanswered, 1939 might seem more appropriate to them when considering this weekend's overthrow of democratic Governments and the consequent miseries that were then inflicted upon people everywhere.
