What was the long lasting effect of the Treaty of Versailles?

The treaty of Versailles was made up of 10 harsh terms, including number 5 - Germany had to pay $6.6 billion in reparations to the countries that had won the war. Germany didn't have this money, so they printed more, therefore creating hyperinflation, so an egg would cost 80 million marks! The effect was pretty bad. They lost military in the Rhineland and land was given back to France. They were forbidden to unite with Austria, and to take full blame of the war. Ouch. -_-
