In the meantime, the British government has asked Beneš to ask for an ombudsman. Beneš did not want to sever his government`s relations with Western Europe, so he reluctantly agreed. The Sudeten Germans were under Hitler`s pressure to avoid a compromise and the SdP organized demonstrations that provoked a police intervention on 7 September in Ostrava during which two of their deputies were arrested.  The Sudeten Germans used the incident and false allegations of other atrocities as a pretext to interrupt new negotiations.   The New York Times on the Munich agreement was ”Hitler receives less than his Sudeten claims,” and reported that a ”cheerful crowd” greeted Daladier on his return to France and that Chamberlain was ”savagely acclaimed” upon his return to Britain.  He quotes Churchill as saying that the agreement means that ”Britain and France were in a much worse position than Hitler`s Germany.”  After personally inspecting the Czech fortifications, Hitler privately told Joseph Goebbels that ”we shed a lot of blood” and that it was fortunate that there was no fighting.  Sudeten Germans were not consulted as to whether they wished to become citizens of Czechoslovakia. .
