Low, David Alexander Cecil, 1891-1963 :Meditative weekend at Berchtesgaden. [3 September 1938]

Reference Number: NON-ATL-C-0085

Hitler at his Austrian mountain retreat, Berchtesgaden, seated at a table between two figures - Peace on the left, nervously handing him the keys of Europe, the scales of justice, and an olive branch on a sheet of paper marked 'sure profits of Peace', while on the left sits Death, playing with the 'Dice of war'. Behind Hitler, though a large window, can be seen a mountain village. Neville Chamberlain made three visits to Hitler to seek a solution to German grievances against Czechoslovakia, the first being at Berchtesgaden on 15 September 1938 and presumably in planning at the time of publication of this cartoon
