Hitler at the signing of the Munich Agreement
Through the Munich Agreement, Hitler secured the support of France, England and Italy for annexing the Sudetenland.
The agreement is considered as the apex of the so-called appeasement politics. In the background, there are (from left to right) Arthur Neville Chamberlain (1869 – 1940), Benito Mussolini (1883 – 1945) and, edited into the image, Edouard Daladier (1884 – 1970), in front at the right Joachim von Ribbentrop (1893 – 1946). The signing took place in the so-called "Führerbau" on Königsplatz.
