Doesnt the appeasement thing come from a sense that the Germans were treated unfairly after ww1?(the war guilt clause)

And after the horrors of 1914-18 the last thing anyone wanted,was another war.

Yes , it was generally felt that the Treaty of Versailles had been too harsh , and had been overly humiliating for the Germans.

Indeed, and that just added to the German sense of injustice and search for "revenge".  I don't think there was a sense of regret at the terms of the Versailles treaty on the Allied side at the time (1919); I think it was generally felt that the Germans should be made to pay.  With the benefit of hindsight, a more magnanimous approach would have led to a better outcome, and I think this lesson had been learned at the conclusion of the Second World War, with the Allied nations (primarily America) assisting with the post-war rebuild of Germany and Japan.
