Low, David Alexander Cecil, 1891-1963 :In darkest Autarkia. Van Zeeland Hotel. Appeasement for man and beast. [17 June 1938]

Reference Number: NON-ATL-C-0103

A banquet set out by the Van Zeeland Hotel on a primitive island, with Van Zeeland, Premier of Belgium as the maitre d'hotel, holding the menu, and watching with bewilderment as the 'savages' around him (Hitler, Mussolini Goering, and another man) sit around naked, gnawing at human bones, while a further man in the background pursues someone else with a club. Reflects the British view of the Allies' civilised attitude to appeasement talks compared with the aggressive attitudes expressed by the Axis powers. The appeasement talks were associated with trade stagnation
