Transcript of Was appeasement justified?

Was appeasment justified? YES NO By not standing up to his actions, appeasement encouraged Hitler to be more and more aggressive. Appeasement allowed Hitler to gain more land, men and resources making him stronger and more difficult to defeat. Hitler had written about his violent aims since the 1920s. The Allies should have ignorned Hitler's claim at Sudetenland that it was the 'last problem' to be solved. It was morally wrong to abandon Czechoslovakia during the Munich Agreement. Appeasement made Stalin question the value of an agreement with the Allies and convinced him of the need to make a deal with Hitler. One the one hand, appeasment was justified because Britain were not ready for war and needed time to rearm incase they did have to got to war
Overall however, appeasement was not justified because Hitler was only getting stronger and would soon have become harder to defeat 1. Add Words 2. Add Pictures 3. Write a conclusion Britain was a democracy and
Chamberlain wasn't a dictator
who could take his people to
war. He needed their support
before they went to battle and
British people only wanted
peace. They wouldn't back him
going to war. The people of Britain felt
the Treaty of Versailles
was too harsh on
Germany and that they
were being forced to
accept it. They wanted
Germany to be able to
breathe and didn't want
to get in their way again The British were against
Communism and didn't want
the idea heading West. They
knew Germany had to
rebuild to defend themselves
against Communism and
stopping them doing that
wouldn't help at all Britain had seen the
bombings of Guernica and
didn't wantthat happening
to them. Theyknew that if
they went to war,they would
be on therecieving end of
theLuftwaffe's bombs. They
hadto get on the German's
side. Britain needed time to rearm
incase of another World War.
They werestill suffering after the
first WorldWar and there was a
depression.They needed to get
back on theirfeet before they did
any real fighting.
