Next, they must decide as countries whether they will sign the treaty they have negotiated. At the conclusion of the unit, compare your treaty twith the real Treaty of Versailles to determine which treaty would most likely ensure long lasting peace in Europe. Standards 10.5.1, 11.4.5

Great War, The: Evaluating the Treaty of Versailles

Description: Although at the postwar peace talks President Woodrow Wilson wished above all to prevent future wars, the Treaty of Versailles, which formally ended World War I, is widely considered to have contributed to the rise to power of the Nazi party in Germany. Was the Treaty of Versailles a legitimate and justified attempt by the victorious powers to ensure that Germany would never again pose a military threat? Or did the Treaty, as the Nazis and many other politicians in Germany claimed, place an unfair and unnecessarily punitive burden on Germany? What were the aims and motives of the victorious powers in drawing up the Treaty of Versailles? Was the Treaty a fair one? Was the German response justfied? Study a variety of primary sources, maps, and supporting documents concerning the post-war peace process to develop a context for evaluating whether the treaty was a viable, fair one, and for considering some of the complex questions this issue raises about the historical causality and responsibility. Standard 10.6.1
