During January 1919, the Triple Entente nations, France, Great Britain, and Russia met with the Central Powers of Europe, Germany, Italy, and Austria Hungary to negotiate an end to World War 1. The Treaty of Versailles was not fair because the German Government had to pay money to support it's country. Additionally, Germany had to pay billions of pounds to the Triple Entente for the war reparations. Woodrow Wilson, the President of the United States at the time, came up with the idea of this treaty to prevent any future wars between the European countries. The Treaty of Versailles was not fair because of the difficulties Germany had to face with its economy, taking all the blame for starting the first World War, and causing a start to another disastrous war. .
The German government had to overcome great economic difficulties because of the Treaty of Versailles. Since the war ended, the war factories that created guns, bullets, and other war materials were shut down. This caused many people to become unemployed and unable to provide for their families. Since Germany had to pay for all the reparations of the war, there were severe food shortages, which lead to people getting less than 1000 calories day. Additionally, the German Navy refused to bring goods. The army troops were ordered to shoot the sailors to bring supplies and the army troops refused to shoot their own men. On top of that, the Spanish flu epidemic hit Germany which caused many people to die quickly. The Kaiser took his family and ran away to Holland because he was scared he might go missing like his cousin the Czar, leader of Russia. That is one reason why the treaty had a negative impact on Germany. The second reason why the treaty had a negative impact on Germany was because the country took all the blame for starting the war. When a tragic event occurs, one person or country is not responsible for igniting the flame, there are two or more parties that get into a conflict to start the fire.
