More information about Final Jeopardy:
Originally broadcasted on the BBC on September 27, 1938,, the quote of then-British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain was referring to Adolf Hitler’s annexation of the Sudetenland, having failed to convince the Nazis against the annexation of the Czech territory. Three days after this speech, Hitler and Chamberlain signed the Munich Agreement providing for a peaceful resolution, leading to Chamberlain’s more famous “peace in our time” speech. This agreement only managed to hold off the start of World War II for less than a year.
Needless to say, historians today have roundly criticized Chamberlain and the British for allowing fascism to get too strong.
