Germany's reaction to the Treaties
Was Germany's reaction justified?
It was wide felt that Germnas were operating double standards as they were much harsher of the Treaty of Brest-Lotovsk ith Russia than the alliied had been wiht the treaty that they had to obey.
Not enthusiastic about fourteen points but when on epoint self-detemination was not applied to them they were not too pleased.
The Impact of The Treaty of Versailles
Caused problems for Germany.
The Weimar Republic
Had to sign the Treaty of Versailles, making then Weimar Govenmnet even more unpopular.
The Kapp Putsch March 1920
led a putsch (a revolt, rebellion or uprising aimed at overthrowing the current governmnet) against Ebert. The rebellion failed, and Kapp fled.
Ruhr's strike (1923) meant that no German goods were being produced, so the government solved the problem by printing money. Causing a distarous porblme, creating hyperinflation. The economy collpased prices and wages rose out of control as money became worthless overnight.
