USA: They felt like the treaty was not completely fair and in some sort of way just wanted to spread democracy and make sure there was no such war in the future. Though they initiated the League of Nations they didn't take part in it. 4. Germany : The reactions of Germans in general was 'pain and anger'. They felt it was unfair.
The Versailles treaty was the peace settlement between Germany and the Allied powers that eventually ended world war one. Even Though it ended this war the treaty of Versailles was hated by many American and Germany. Germany made many threats to the Allied powers. The passing of the Treaty of Versailles resulted in unpopular backlash from both Germany and America. France, Italy, Britain and the U.S. met at the Capitol to talk about the terms of peace for the post war.
As a result of failure in the First World War Germany was forced to sign a treaty, called the Treaty of Versaille. In this treaty, it was recognized that Germany was responsible for the start of the war. This even though not proved was recognized by Germany. The people could not believe it. They where embarrassed at what there country had recognized by signing the treaty.
The terms of the treaty were very harsh to the Germans and they took on great resentment. It was a fragile peace agreement that would be used as fuel to keep hostilities going 20 years later. When the details of the treaty were published in June 1919 most Germans were horrified. Germany had not been allowed to the Peace Conference and was told to accept the terms or else. Most Germans however, had believed that the Treaty would be lenient because of Wilson's Fourteen Points.
Hitler's Rise Due to Treaty of Versailles The Treaty of Versailles contributed to Hitler's rise by being the most hated treaty ever brought about. The Treaty ruined any chance of Germany regaining dignity after World War One. The German people didn't believe they had lost the war or should be blamed for the war, so when the Treaty gave them a term they had to agree with e.g. You must take the blame for starting the war, they felt the terms were unfair. Also what was unfair the German's were not there when the terms where drawn up, so this made them unhappy but they also felt the terms were hypocritical and unjust.
However, how could people silenced their own voice in how their country should be governed? With a disgraceful defeat in 1919, Germany signed the Treaty of Versailles thus ending World War I but also igniting hatred, vulnerability and a dictator. With the litany of restrictions and reminders of their downfall, Germans became outraged at their government. In addition to the loss, the Weimer Republic, the government system postwar, could not control an inflation wiping out the people’s life savings and respect. Germans started to distrust their government system; the citizens thus saw a resolution named Adolf Hitler.
In addition to that, the forcing of the Treaty of Versailles on Germany did not bode well with the Germans. They did not feel that they had really lost the war. And then forced to assume war guilt on top of downsizing it’s army, limiting it’s boundaries, and paying for war damages. It’s pretty evident that Germany would want to punish those that put them in such an impoverished state. The Germans were struggling due to the treaty.
From Hitler’s speech (doc 3) it is shown from Hitler’s point of view, which is obviously a very bias point of view in which everything that happened was unfair. Hitler critics the treaty of Versailles and says that the German people do not agree with the decisions made by the government. Like in doc 1 and 2 it states that Germany had land taken from them and got blamed on for a bunch of things, so the citizens believe that if they stayed in war they could have definitely won. What this shows is Hitler’s bias views towards his country. From Hitler’s M... ... middle of paper ... ...e prepared to fight or not.
Once the Treaty of Versailles was introduced to the community many liberals were not pleased with what it contained and covered. The liberals show, with The New Republican [DB], that they don't like the treaty and are not satisfied with what it has done. They believe it hasn't done enough. The New Republican shows why the liberals didn't agree with the Treaty of Versailles, which was that it did not offer peace so it did not make up for the war.
Challenge to Versailles Between 1933-36 was a Reaction to Events Rather than a Consequence of Ideology Plan Ä Versailles: how it affected Germany Ä What was his ideology Ä Appeasement: what it was, why did they follow it, how did Hitler take his chance? Ä What happened between 33-36 Ä Opportunist or planned? The treaty of Versailles had made a massive impact on Germanys military and economic resources. Germany was hit hard and forced to also sign the War Guilt Clause. Most Germans hated Versailles, as the country became weak and useless, many people thought it should be overturned however, nobody had the power to do it and nobody wanted to risk war.
