Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King visited Germany in the late 1930s and met with Adolf Hitler, as well as some of his top officials. He wrote about this meeting extensively in his journal. Here, Prime Minister King is saluted in the traditional
Nazi fashion as he walks through a crowd, flanked by Nazi officials in June 1937. King's visits with Hitler are an example of attempts to placate and acquiesce growing aggression and avoid another devastating global conflict.
