The Kapp Putsch


Lots of German nationalists were unhappy with the German government for signing the Treaty of Versailles, they saw this as a symbol of Germany's defeat in the war. The German people wanted to have a strong government which would make Germany strong again.

In March 1920, Wolfgang Kapp and a group of Freikorps seized power in Berlin although Kapp was not supported by the workers in the factories and they organised a stirke in support of the Government - the capital of Germany came to a standstill as supplies of gas, water and coal were not being produced. The strike only lasted four days as Kapp and his supporters gave up and left Germany. The Weimer Government returned to power.
