I read on the internet that Konrad Henlein is next to Hitler and this is for the German Anschluss and annexation of the Sudetenland in 1938.

The Sudetenland is the German name to refer to those northern, southwest, and western areas of Czechoslovakia which were inhabited mostly by German speakers, specifically the border districts of Bohemia, Moravia, and those parts of Silesia located within Czechoslovakia.

Konrad Ernst Eduard Henlein (6 May 1898 – 10 May 1945) was a leading Sudeten German politician in Czechoslovakia. Upon the German occupation he joined the Nazi Party and was appointed Reichsstatthalter (Imperial Lieutenant or Imperial Governor) of the Sudetenland in 1939.
