The Munich Agreement Cartoon

On September 22, Chamberlain, who was about to fly to Germany for further talks in Bad Godesberg, told the press that met him there: “My goal is peace in Europe, I believe this journey is the path to that peace.” [32] Chamberlain came to Cologne where he was generously welcomed with a German band playing “God Save the King” and Germans giving flowers and gifts to Chamberlain. [32] Chamberlain had calculated that full acceptance of the German annexation of all the Sudetenland, without reduction, would force Hitler to accept the agreement. [32] When Hitler found out, he replied, “Does this mean that the Allies agree with the Prague agreement on handing over the Sudetenland to Germany?” Chamberlain replied, “Exactly,” to which Hitler responded by shaking his head, saying that the Allied offer was insufficient.
