TREATY OF VERSAILLES

The Treaty of Versailles, signed in France on June 28, 1919, was the main treaty ending the First World War. Signed between Germany and the Allied Powers, the most important element of the treaty was the War Guilt Clause. This required Germany and its allies to take responsibility for starting the war. Germany was forced to disarm, cede territory that it had taken, and make reparations to the Entente powers. The financial burden of reparations was considerable, around $442 billion in today’s terms. None of the powers involved were satisfied with the terms, as some considered them too harsh, and others thought they were too lenient. The Treaty of Versailles is considered a key reason for the subsequent rise of the Nazis.
