30 September 1938: New Light on Appeasement and the Munich Conference
Dr Brian McKercher

Appeasement has had a bad reputation since the Munich pact of September 1938, when British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain conceded to Hitler's invasion of part of Czechoslovakia and subsequently announced that he had secured "peace in our time." Join Dr Brian McKercher for a rethinking of appeasement as a foreign policy concept in modern British history and Chamberlain's response to the threat of fascism.  

Venue: Hermann’s Jazz Club, 753 View St.
Date: Tuesday, Jan. 6
Time: Doors open at 5:30 pm, talk begins at 7:00 pm

What is a Café Historique? A group of interesting people in a convivial café setting, who gather to hear a talk and discuss new ideas about how the past has shaped our present and future, as well as to drink, eat, converse, meet friends, and have an evening to remember.

Café Historique is a pay-what-you-want event and is open to the public. Please look for the donation box at the entrance; if each audience member contributed as little as a twoonie, the series would be able to cover its production costs!

Seating is limited, so to guarantee a place, audience members should reserve tickets using Eventbrite.

Those without access to the internet can book tickets by calling the UVic organizer: 250-472-5484.
