The Treaty of Versailles was a peace treaty made after World War I. It was signed in Paris, and many countries were apart of it. This treaty basically put the blame on Germany, leaving them with many reparations. This left Germany in severe poverty which Hitler used to his advantage.


Germany was penalized due to its involvement in WWI. It was no longer permitted to have an armed military force and had to pay heavy taxes.
