<strong>Czech troops. Nervous times.</strong>


News for this May 23rd in 1938 comes from Germany, via the Shortwave Service of Radio Berlin and their daily English newscast.

Reports on border incidents between Czech and German troops, the continuing negotiations between Berlin, London and Paris on the Sudeten question. News regarding meetings between Sudeten-German mouthpiece Konrad Henlein with Czech representatives on the border question. Continuing pressure for a settlement.

And the weather in Berlin was "fine and spring-like".

And that's how this day was rolling if you happened to be around on May 23, 1938 and were dial hopping on your Shortwave radio, listening for Berlin.
