What was the main land Germany lost? Alsace Lorraine given back to France. Eupen and Malmedy given to Belgium. Northern Schleswig given to Denmark. The Saar out under LON control for 15 years. Posen and the Polish Corridor went to Poland, which meant East Prussia was split from the main part of Germany.

What is "Diktat"? A "dictated" peace. Germany not allowed to negociate the treaty and the germans believed it was forced upon them.
Significance of the Treaty Of Versailles? Felt it was DIKTAT. Loss of land was massive-10% of total land and 12.5% of their population (Ausland Deutschen). Military restrictions made Germany feel threatened (too small to defend the nation). Reparations were too expensive-couldn't afford them. Germany were humiliated by the war guilt clause.
Strengths of the TOV? Brought peace. Set up League of Nations. Some of it felt reasonable.
Weaknesses of TOV? Left germany with grievances and many parts contradicted Wilson's "14 points". Germany wanted to "right the wrongs" of the TOV (they were angry)
