Abstract

The Munich Crisis of 1938 remains a synonym for betrayal in Czech and Slovak historiography, the moment the first republic's fate was decided without consultation and its European allies allowed Hitler to feast on its remains. Professor Charles Saroléa was a self-proclaimed ‘friend’ of Czechoslovakia. During the Great War, he sponsored Czech and Slovak propaganda in his journal, Everyman. In the next two decades, he was a frequent visitor to Prague, maintaining contact with Presidents Masaryk and Benescaron. And yet, during the first republic's final hours his support was found wanting. This paper examines Saroléa's relationship with Czechoslovakia and why, in 1938, he seemingly abandoned the state he had a part in founding.
