I'm sure if the Russians hadn't opened a tomb, the Germans wouldn't have invaded.

Germans did not invade Russia. Germans were taking defensive precautions. Russians invaded the neutral territory in Poland to encroach upon Germans.

Egbert,
Neutral territory? Germany and russia invaded poland at the same time. They had a temporary alliance, which is the reason the Allies declared war on germany.
However, russias politics were the polar opposite of germanys, which is why war with them was inevitable.
