HAVC 135B : German Art 1905-1945

Treaty of Versailles

World War I officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28, 1919. Negotiated among the Allied powers with little participation by Germany, its 15 parts and 440 articles reassigned German boundaries and assigned liability for reparations.

Resentment against the treaty helped provoke a nationalist fervor, which enabled Adolph Hitler’s rise to power.
