In January 1919, 32 countries came to Paris in the Palace of Versailles. The reason for this was to hold a conference which was lead by; David Lloyd George- Britain Woodrow Wilson -USA and Georges Clemenceau- France. This conference would be to overlook WW1 and create peace. In this conference the three leaders were to decide what punishment would be best suited for Germany as they lost the war. Germany was not included or invited to this conference.
In 28 June, 1919, the three leaders and two German representatives had met in the Hall of Mirrors allocated in the Palace of Versailles. The two were forced to sign the contract and meet all the required punishments/ reparations.
