Best Answer

The Treaty of Versailles was the final agreement reached at the end of World War I. Many of its conditions were considered unfair to the Germans, and so the Germans resented the Treaty. Hitler was able to feed off of this public resentment when he was gathering support.

What are the pros and cons of the Treaty of Versailles?

The Treaty of Versailles effectively ended the first world war and left the aggrieved parties feeling like Germany was being duly punished for its crimes. Unfortunately, the treaty was far too harsh, and it lead to a political climate where Hitler came to power. He started the second World War in large part due to the unfair sanctions in the Treaty of Versailles.

What country did the Treaty of Versailles punish?

The Treaty of Versailles wasn't intended to punish anybody - it was simply the peace agreement between the Allies and the Germans. However the Germans were hardly involved in the negotiations and the Treaty was very harsh against them; arguably leading to the inflation and ensuing poverty that, in it's turn, lead to Hitler's rise to power and WW2.

How did the Treaty of Versailles contribute to the Holocaust?

The Treaty of Versailles did NOT contribute or lead to the Holocaust. The Versailles Treaty did, however, encourage German nationalism. Even in the early years of Nazi rule in Germany it was not obvious that the persecution of the Jews would culminate in mass murder.

Why did the Versailles treaty lead to another war?

Read the 14 points of the Versailles Treaty and you will understand why the Germans were angry and bitter about the treaty. The Germans had to give up money, land, their military and this resulted in a depression in their economy. Hitler hated that treaty and what it had done to Germany. He vowed to get revenge for it and correct matters for Germany. When he came into leadership he did exactly that. He disregarded the treaty and began making plans for war. See link below.
