German Reaction to the Economic Demands of the Treaty
The German delegation that was called to Paris on April 25 to “receive” the Treaty was aghast at many of the demands it contained, especially the economic demands. At the beginning of May an economic commission of the German delegation set forth its view of the broad economic impact the Treaty would have upon German life. The declaration was transmitted to the Allies on May 13, 1919, in a note from the head of the German delegation, the Foreign Minister, Count Ulrich von Brockdorff-Rantzau, to Clemenceau, President of the Conference.
