How far was Germany's anger over Versailles a result of their loss of territory?

NOTE. This answer is my own assessment, based on work on the period. 1. Some of the territorial losses didn't in fact bother most Germans all that much. It was the loss of territory to Poland that hurt most. After all, for a long time the Germans had regarded the Poles as inferior. Worse still, Polish irregulars (with the support of the new Polish government) tried to seize the plebiscite area of Upper Silesia in 1921 before the people there could vote on whether they wanted to stay part of Germany or join Poland. When the borders of Poland were finally established later in 1921, the Poles promptly treated all their ethnic minorities badly. Some Germans were so exasperated by having their family names changed to Polish names, and having to send their kids to Polish schools where all the teaching was in Polish, that they moved to Germany. By comparison, hardly anyone was bothered by the loss of Alsace-Lorraine. 2. The reparations and the war guilt clause were also very unpopular. 3. What was probably most unpopular of all, however, was the attempt of the French government to go **beyond Versailles** by occupying the Ruhr in 1923 and trying to set up a puppet French state there and in the Rhineland. --- Obviously, those who believed in the stab-in-the-back legend were convinced that Germany had been cheated of the fruits of its victory over Russia. They were opposed to any settlement at all.
