June 28, 1919: The Treaty of Versailles is Signed
On this day in 1919, Germany and Allied forces signed the Treaty of Versailles. The peace treaty is one of many that aided in ending World War I. The treaty, which was written mostly by the Allies, outlined harsh reparations payments for Germany. The Germans felt that the treaty was unfair and was an attempt to destroy the country. The continued resentment to the Treaty of Versailles eventually led to extreme German nationalism and provoked the start of World War II.
