S OCIAL S TUDIES B EFORE C OMMON C ORE The Allied and Associated Governments affirm and Germany accepts the responsibility of Germany and her allies for causing all the loss and damage to which the Allied and Associated Governments and their nationals have been subjected as a consequence of the war imposed upon them by the aggression of Germany and her allies. The Allied and Associated Governments, however, require, and Germany undertakes, that she will make compensation for all damage done to the civilian population of the Allied and Associated Powers and to their property during the period of the belligerency of each as an Allied or Associated Power against Germany by such aggression by land, by sea and from the air, and in general all damage as defined in Annex l hereto. Resource: Treaty of Versailles, Articles 231 and 232 (1919) Before Common Core The Treaty of Versailles blamed Germany solely for WWI and insisted that Germany pay massive reparations for the damage caused during the war. Write a five-paragraph essay explaining Germany’s role in starting the war.
S OCIAL S TUDIES WITH C OMMON C ORE There must be justice for the dead and wounded and for those who have been orphaned and bereaved that Europe might be freed from Prussian despotism. There must be justice for the peoples who now stagger under war debts which exceed £30,000,000,000 that liberty might be saved. There must be justice for those millions whose homes and land, ships and property German savagery has spoliated and destroyed. Resource: Georges Clemenceau, speech at Paris Peace Conference (1919) Common Core After analyzing multiple primary source reactions to the Treaty of Versailles, write an argumentative text that evaluates whether the imposition of war reparations on Germany was the best course of action following WWI. Cite evidence from the sources to support your claim, and refute counterclaims. The Treaty includes no provision for the economic rehabilitation of Europe - nothing to make the defeated Central Powers into good neighbours, nothing to stabilise the new States of Europe, nothing to reclaim Russia; nor does it promote in any way a compact of economic solidarity amongst the Allies themselves; no arrangement was reached at Paris for restoring the disordered finances of France and Italy, or to adjust the systems of the Old World and the New. Resource: John Maynard Keynes, The Economic Consequences of Peace (1920)
