Appeasement - Germany Before World War II
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     There is an expression that says, "hindsight is 20/20." It means that it is easy to see mistakes when you are looking back on something that has already happened. This is often what happens when people look back on the events that led up to World War II.
 
2     During the 1930s, people in Europe and America remembered the horrors of World War I very clearly. They knew that they did not want another war, but new conflicts were already beginning.
 
3     Germany had already begun to take aggressive actions. It had opened its first concentration camps. In 1937, it had attacked the town of Guernica, Spain. In 1938, it had invaded Austria.
 
4     Neville Chamberlain, the Prime Minister of Great Britain, tried to negotiate with Adolf Hitler, the leader of Germany, in the hope of preventing another war. He gave in to some of Hitler's demands. This move was seen as a compromise that would prevent problems between the European countries from escalating into another war. It was called appeasement.
 
5     The agreements were praised for preserving "peace in our time." World leaders, including the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of Canada, praised Chamberlain's diplomatic skills.
