This powerpoint looks at the direct impact of the Versailles Treaty on Germany. We examine the actual terms of the treaty, the strain on rebuilding the economy, trouble in the Ruhr, inflation, the need for the Dawes Plan and Young Plan and the impact on the middle class and retired. The 25 slides utilize famous images, embedded discussion questions, original charts and graphs, excerpts from quotes, and content presented in a way that makes it easy for students to understand. The powerpoint ends creating an environment in Germany that is ready to see a strong leader restore power.
This powerpoint can be coupled with my "Life in Germany" simulation where students are assigned a "life" and as they follow along with the powerpoint they see how their lives would have turned out. Gives students a direct link to the fears and frustrations the average German might have felt. Both are available in my store.
