The Munich Agreement weakened the state of Czechoslovakia in many ways:

  • Czechoslovakia had lost it's strong defensive system.
  • It had lost key industrial areas.
  • It lost territory to Poland and Hungary in 1938.

In 1939, the Slovaks demanded more rights. The new president, Emil Hacher, appealed to Hitler for help. In the end, Hacher had no choice but to invite the Germans into Czechoslovakia.
