What part of the Treaty of Versailles was most damaging to the German economy?

Article 231. It was the Reparations Clause. It ordered the German Empire to pay reparations to the United States. The original amount was 226 billion Reichsmarks, but was later reduced to 132 billion Reichsmarks (worth about $438 billion USD, circa 2010).

This put Germany into a state of hyperinflation, making their money worth less and raising their taxes to astronomical proportions.

How did the Germans feel after the Treaty of Versailles?

The immediate German reaction to the treaty of Versailles was one of shock and anger. The Chancellor at the time , Scheidemann announced the government would not accept it.

Though the anger and emotions that the news of the terms of the treaty bought to Germany, the reality was that the German people had little choice other than to accept the treaty. The allied powers threatened to resume war if it was not signed. The allies were also keeping a bloackade of Germany at this time, which ultimately caused the deaths of 70,000 people.

What were the three main goals of the Treaty of Versailles?

i only know 2 of them and i cant quite find the 3rd right now. the 2 i know were that the Germans had to stop military production and events. and the second was that the Germans must give up land that was later distributed into other countries. now that i think of it i think the third was to pay a large portion of the tole of the Great War. and it is funny cause i am currently working on a power point about this i hope it helps at least a little if anything is wrong i would be glad if someone left a response to fix it. thanks!

i think the third is for Germany to pay for the total cost of world war 1

How did Hitler break the Treaty of Versailles?

Hitler's Violations of the Treaty of Versailles
  • 1933: Germany ceased paying reparations altogether, though the original burden had been reduced twice in the 1920s and special provision had been made for only very small payments during the Great Depression. (I'd regard this as one of the less serious breaches).
  • Began secret rearmament.
  • 1934: Interference in the internal affairs of Austria.
  • Germany began to build an air force.
  • 1935: Re-introduction of compulsory military service for all able-bodied young men. Fivefold (!) increase in the size of the German armed forces. (Major breach of the treaty).
  • 1936: Remilitarized the Rhineland, which had been remained German but been demilitarized under terms of the Versailles Treaty. (Major breach).
  • 1938: Annexation of Austria - contrary to the treaty. (Major breach).
  • 1939 (March): Annexed Memel.

In addition, there were the following actions, which weren't covered by the treaty:

  • 1933 (October): Pulled Germany out of the League of Nations. In the 1920s Stresemann had managed to get Germany admitted and had ended Germany's international 'outcast' status.
  • 1938 (September/October): Demanded (and got) the Sudetenland at Munich.
  • 1939 (March): Occupied the rest of Bohemia and Moravia. Most of Slovakia set up as German puppet state. 1939 (July): Strident demands to Poland for Danzig and the Polish Corridor.

In 1926 when Germany joined the League of Nations it had solemnly accepted its western borders as final and had undertaken not to try to change it eastern borders by force.
