They lost the war and in the treaty they had to pay back the countries they lost the war to. They also couldn't maintain a military even for protection. The conditions created a situation where the Germans resented the treaty and will eventually react by empowering Hitler.

Many Germans believed that the Armistice that brought the First World War to an end was because of a "draw" of sorts. The Western Allies didn't see it that way and the peace treaty, the Treaty of Versailles, severely punished Germany for starting the war. The treaty punished Germany in many ways. They had to pay war reparations, give up colonies, reduce their military to a small number and forbid building submarines. Basically the treaty humiliated Germany. The kaiser, had to flee Germany as he was held greatly responsible for all of Germany's post war troubles.
