LONDON, July 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s air ticket to Munich where he struck an agreement with Hitler, Mussolini and Daladier in 1938, which subsequently led to the German occupation of a part of Czechoslovakia, was sold at a Spink auction for 17.000 pounds ($28.900) to a collector on Tuesday.
This is the ticket Chamberlain waved before the crowd at London’s Heston Aerodrome on September 29 before he flew off to Germany where he hoped to solve the Hitler problem, an auction official said.
Upon return to London, he presented the signed agreement, declaring “I have returned from Germany with peace for our time.”
However, events did not develop by his scenario and a year later the Second World War began.
Air ticket BA/WS 18249 was sold a day prior to the prime minister’s trip, on September 28. It was found among personal belongings of one of the British Airways founders, George Denny, after his death. Its former owner kept it as proof of the event that had changed European and world history.
