Emil Hacha

Czech President. From 1918 to 1938, he served as a judge on the Supreme Administrative Court of the Republic of Czechosolvakia. After the Treaty of Munich and the forced resignation of President Edvard Benes in 1938, Hacha was chosen to serve as President. On March 14, 1939, he met with Adolf Hitler in Berlin and was forced to surrender his nation to Germany. He retained his post after the German occupation of Czechosolvakia, but was forced to swear an oath to Hitler and the Nazis. Early on he secretly cooperated with the Czech government-in-exile of Edvard Benes, but the situation changed after the Nazis instituted much harsher control over the Czech people. Hacha then began to collaborate with the Nazis to prevent greater reprisals. Aging and in poor health, he would serve as President until May 13, 1945, when he was arrested by the Soviets. He died a few weeks later in a prison hospital in Prague. (bio by: Mr. Badger Hawkeye)
