"Peace for Our Time," September 30, 1938
The following statement was made by British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, in front of #10 Downing Street, London, after his arrival home from the notorious Munich Conference of 1938
We, the German Fuhrer and Chancellor, and the British Prime Minister, have
had a further meeting today and are agreed in recognizing that the question
of Anglo-German relations is of the first importance for our two countries
and for Europe.
We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval
Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war
with one another again.
We are resolved that the method of consultation shall be the method adopted
to deal with any other questions that may concern our two countries, and we
are determined to continue our efforts to remove possible sources of
difference, and thus to contribute to assure the peace of Europe.
My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime
Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it
is "peace for our time." Go home and get a nice quiet sleep
