Capstone Project: “Could the Second World War have been avoided?”
This capstone project, created in World Civilizations, argues that the signing of the Treaty of Versailles made World War II inevitable. If the 14 Points proposal, created by Woodrow Wilson had been adopted, World War II may have been avoided. The Treaty of Versailles humiliated Germany and caused an economic recession that created resentment against the allies and distrust of Jews and liberals in Germany. The 14 points proposal was a sign of forgiveness against Germany and was an initiative to put “The Great War” behind. The animosity engendered by the Treaty of Versailles changed history.
