This morning, I had another talk with German Chancellor, Herr Hitler, and here is the paper which bears his name upon it as well as mine…. My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it is peace for our time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.
–British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, 30 Sep 1938
The following day, German occupation of the Sudetenland began. Less than a year after the agreement, following the German invasion of Poland and its continued aggression in the region, Europe was plunged into World War II.
