At a Sudeten German Party Congress in Karlsbad, Sudeten German leader Konrad Henlein calls for full autonomy for Sudeten Germans.

According to Henlein:

"We Germans will continue to regard ourselves as oppressed so long as we are not free to do whatever Czechs may do. ...We desire neither civil war nor foreign war, but we cannot long tolerate conditions which to us are of a king of war in the midst of peace."
