I use this as a group activity to get students thinking about how the Treaty of Versailles impacted the German people. The students work in groups to answer questions after a review of the primary document.
-Why did the Germans hate the Treaty?
-How did the treaty impact the new Weimar Republic?
-How did the treaty impact Germany's military, economy, and sense of pride?
-In what way did the Treaty of Versailles influence the rise of the Nazi Party.
Students can work separately or together to discuss how the average German citizen may have felt.
Use it however you want. I hope it gets your kids thinking!
