Munich Agreement in 1938 and the Sudetenland

  • The Sudetenland was created by the Treaty of Versailles - Germans lived there and wanted to be part of Germany
  • Britain, France and the USSR supported Czechoslovakia in the case of war which now looked likely
  • So Chamberlain (British Prime Minister) met with Hitler in Munich and gave him the Sudetenland so that he wouldn't invade the rest of Czechoslovakia and create peace
  • Hitler promised not to invade anywhere else
  • Chamberlain was made a hero as people thought he had prevented war with Germany
  • However, Hitler went back on his promise and said that the Germans in Czechoslovakia were being mistreated
  • He used this as a reason to invaded the rest of Czechoslovakia
