In the face of tensions between the Germans and the Czechoslovakian government, on 15 September 1938, Benes secretly proposed to cede 6,000 square kilometres to Czechoslovakia in Germany, in exchange for a German accession agreement of 1.5 to 2.0 million South Germans that expelled Czechoslovakia. Hitler did not respond. [13] The above statement and the formal act of recognition guided Her Majesty`s Government`s policy towards Czechoslovakia, but to avoid possible misunderstandings, I would like to declare, on behalf of Her Majesty`s Government in the United Kingdom, that Germany deliberately destroyed the 1938 agreements on Czechoslovakia, in which Her Majesty`s Government participated in the United Kingdom. , Her Majesty`s government is free of any obligation in this regard. In the final colonization of the Czechoslovakian borders, which must be reached at the end of the war, they are not influenced by the changes that have taken place since 1938. Although the British and French were satisfied, a British diplomat in Berlin said that he had been informed by a member of Hitler`s entourage that shortly after the meeting with Chamberlain, Hitler had said angrily: “Gentlemen, this was my first international conference and I can assure you that this will be my last.” [45] On another occasion, he had been heard by Chamberlain: “If this stupid old man ever intervenes again with his umbrella, I will shoot him and jump on his stomach in front of the photographers.” [45] [46] [47] In one of his public speeches after Munich, Hitler declared, “Thank God we have no politicians in this country.” [45] [46] [48] (8) The Czechoslovakian government will release from its military and police forces, within four weeks of the date of this agreement, all Sudeten Germans who wish to be released, and the Czechoslovak government will release, within the same period, prisoners from South Germans who will serve sentences for political offences. On 30.m September, 11 hours after the Czechoslovakian government agreed to the Munich terms, Poland issued an ultimatum to the Czechoslovakian government. [78] It demanded the immediate evacuation of Czechoslovakian troops and police and gave Prague until noon the next day. On 1 October at 11:45 a.m. .m.

the Czechoslovak Foreign Ministry called the Polish ambassador in Prague to tell him that Poland could get what it wanted, but then asked for a 24-hour delay. On 2 October, the Polish army, under the command of General W. Bortnowski, annexed an area of 801.5 km2 with 227,399 inhabitants. The attached area was divided between Frysztat County and Cieszyn County. [79] At the same time, Slovakia lost 10,390 km2 to Hungary, which has a population of 854,277. After Poland learned that populated territories in Poland were to be transferred to Germany, Poland issued a note to the Czechoslovak government regarding the immediate conclusion of an agreement providing for the unquestionable occupation of Polish territory by Polish troops; An agreement on referendums is expected to follow in districts with a large proportion of the Polish population. [75] As the threats of Germany and a European war became increasingly evident, opinions changed.
