					             The Treaty of Versailles: Bitter Fruits




The armistices (cease-fire) ended World War I on November 11, 1918 at 11 a.m. The
Treaty of Versailles was negotiated in January of 1919. This treaty ended a conflict that
had killed over 8.5 million men and wounded over 21 million men. While this was
suppose to be a lasting peace and “the war to end all wars,” the results of the treaty are
said to have laid the seeds for World War II. The Germans especially felt a bitter sense of
resentment at the results of the peace treaty.

Task:
Please identify 10 specific terms of the treaty that cause resentment by the Germans.
Please be specific with both the terms and why they caused bitterness. If you are talking
about territorial losses by the Germans please identify them on the map on the back.
