I'm doing an essay for History GCSE coursework.


Any reasons why geographically the Treaty of Versaille was significant?
Long-term or short-term?

I've listed some of the terms where land was taken from Germany (such as Alsace-Lorraine, the Saar and colonies) but I'm not sure how to explain why it makes it significant.

Well, for long-term significance, the role it played in causing the Second World War is pretty significant...

I.e. the fact it blamed Germany entirely & punished the country so severely was humiliating for many German people ==> something Hitler was ultimately able to capitalise on in his rise to power

This is a cartoon that was drawn at the time of the Treaty of Versailles predicting that it would lead to a future war - and it's only one year out

Germany was forbidden to achieve Anschluss (territorial merging) with Austria - this bugged the Germans a lot. Hitler tried to achieve Anschluss in 1934, which failed due to Mussolini stopping him from doing so, but successfully tried again in 1938.
