Treaty of Versaille: From Victory to Chaos

Thursday August 1, 2019
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM


Author, historian & professor Mark Albertson will deliver a lecture commemorating the centennial of the signing of The Treaty of Versaille.  It was the peace settlement between Germany and the Allied Powers. that officially endeWorld War I.  However, the conditions in the treaty were so controversial and punitive upon Germany. It required them to accept full responsibility for the loss of life and damages during the war – the guilt clause.  It also required them to disarm, give up territory, and pay reparations in an amount that would decimate its economy. Many believe the treaty laid the groundwork that caused the political, economic and military conditions bringing Hitler and the Nazis to power in Germany and blamed for causing the global conflict – World War II.

Join Professor Alberton as he discusses this cataclysmic U.S. and world history event.
