Chamberlain's appeasement policy toward Hitler ultimately failed
-On September 15, 1938, Great Britain Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain went to Germany to negotiate with Hitler about his claim on Sudetenland, ethnic German regions in Czechoslovakia. The French Prime Minister and Mussolini also participated in the negotiations. While there was no Czech representative in the talks, Great Britain and France gave in to Hitler’s opinion and signed the Munich Pact leading to the ceding of Sudetenland to Germany. Chamberlain believed he had achieved “peace for our time,” but the word Munich soon implied abject and futile appeasement.
Appeasement with Hitler has been historically described as “appeasing the dictator”, proving that conciliation actually increased Hitler’s thirst for aggression and he finally initiated World War II that set the world ablaze. Less than six months later, in March 1939, Hitler seized the remainder of Czechoslovakia.
Today, European media remind Chamberlain’s appeasement policy - considered as treachery- as a warning and an example with regard to the West’s appeasing policies vis-à-vis the Iranian regime.
