English: The Rt Hon Sir Nevile Meyrick Henderson, KCMG (10 June 1882 – 30 December 1942) was the Ambassador of the Great Britain to Germany from 1937 to 1939. He believed that Adolf Hitler could be controlled and pushed toward peace and cooperation with the Western powers. In February 1939 he cabled the Foreign Office in London: "If we handle him (Hitler) right, my belief is that he will become gradually more pacific. But if we treat him as a pariah or mad dog we shall turn him finally and irrevocably into one."
