Who was Adolf Hitler?

Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889 and died on April 30, 1945. He was the leader of the Nazi party in Germany. Hitler gained support after criticizing the Treaty of Versailles after World War I over its unfair consequences towards Germany. The Nazi party was responsible for the genocide of at least 5.5 million Jews and millions of other civilians as well. Hitler continued to grow more and more powerful throughout World War II until it started coming to an end. In the final battle of WWII, the Battle of Berlin, Hitler and his wife of just two days, committed suicide to avoid being captured from the Red Army. World War II had come to an end.

What is the Appeasement Policy?

The Appeasement policy is the policy of making concessions in power in order to avoid conflict between nations. Hitler was granted this appeasement when he wanted the Czech territory returned to Germanys territory. The League of Nations granted this land to him in the hopes of maintaining peace and avoiding war. How could it not be seen that Hitler would use this as an advantage and not stop until he and Germany became the most powerful forces n the world. Agreeing to his wants was one of the biggest mistakes that the League of Nations could have and did make.
