How accurate is this statement (2011 HSC Question)
The acceptance of the armistice and the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 was a defining moment for the Weimar Republic. It was significant as the primary consequence of signing the Treaty of Versailles was national turmoil within Germany. It created political issues, economic issues and social issues that caused Germany to seek alternatives to what they believed a failure of democracy. Through the acceptance of the armistice and the Treaty of Versailles in 1918, the Weimar Republic was born with a "hole in its heart" as perceived by Historian Sefton Delmar. When the Treaty of Versailles was signed in 1919 by officials from within the Weimar government, Germany was outraged.

Treaty of Versaille Essay (25/25)

This student studied:
HSC – Year 12 – Modern History

The acceptance of the armistice and signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 was a defining moment for the Weimar Republic. The significant restrictions of the treaty created political, economic and social issues, which created national turmoil for Germany. The German people were left shocked and angered as the government sought different alternatives to what they believed the failure of the democracy. The important effect of the Treaty of Versailles was that it left a feeling of long-term bitterness and humiliation, and whilst the treaty didn’t completely destroy Germany, she barely survived.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this module students should be able to:

1. Demonstrate a critical understanding of literary and cinematic texts from the late 18th century to the present;
2. Demonstrate awareness of political and social developments in 20th and 21st century Germany;
3. Demonstrate appropriate and effective use of key techniques of analysis of literature and film.
Students will:
4. Develop a more sophisticated understanding of written and spoken German;
5. Develop and demonstrate skills in oral presentation.

Aims

This module seeks to expand students’ knowledge of literary narration (gained at levels 1 and 2), to introduce techniques of filmic narration and to encourage intertextual readings. In so doing this module also explores the history and society of 20th and 21st century Germany; more specifically its area of investigation focuses on the time from the Weimar Republic to the Present.

Brief description

In lectures students are introduced to the broad topics of this module and to analytical methodology. In small groups, they are required to study in depth one of the prescribed literary texts along with its cinematic transformation. They will then present the results of their analysis to the class during seminars, introducing the text and the film to all students.
The introduction of the text should include a brief summary of the story, an overview of the text’s most important stylistic features, the circumstances of its origin and its relevance in its period. The small groups will also choose excerpts of the texts (e.g. of the length of one chapter, or a collection of particularly important paragraphs) for all students to read in preparation for the seminar. The analysis of the cinematic transformation should include a comparison of the contents/stories, along with an analysis of cinematic style and other important changes, e.g. alterations or modernization of themes and motifs.
All students are required to watch all prescribed films and to familiarise themselves with chosen excerpts of the literary texts.
