David Low 1921 By Connor and Zeeshan
The Main Message The main message of the source is that the reparations are too much for Germany to pay off and they will need help.
The Message The message of the cartoon is that Germany will never be able to pay off the debt unless they get some help e.g. a loan. We know this because in the picture the horse is trying to carry unlimited indemnity but it is too much so he will not be able to carry it on his back. Perhaps it would gee-up better if we let it touch the earth. This shows that Germany needs help to pay off the reparations and need a loan. Also, if they weren't having to pay back as much at a time then it would be easier for them.
At the time At the time Germany were beginning their huge amount of reparations of £6.6 billion to the British, French and Americans. Germany were also struggling in rebuilding their country after quite a bit of it was destroyed during the war so money was a shortage. Paying back would be very hard for Germany. This then led to hyperinflation.
Point Evidence Explain We think that Germany hated the war guilt the most because it was a huge hit to their pride. Their pride was very high but this was seen as very annoying.
