Where's Russia?

Hall of Mirrors

The treaty of versailles

The Treaty of Versailles

No! Their military is the REAL problem!

We should form a league of peace so this kind of thing doesn’t happen again!

We want Germany to pay for what they did to Europe!

We want our territories back!



  • The other Allied governments saw Wilson’s plan as too lenient towards the “aggressor” nations.

  • Losses for Germany:

    • Officially blamed for the war

    • Stripped of its military

    • Its territories were split up

    • Were required to pay “reparations” to the Allied countries to a total of…

33 Billion Dollars!
