The war to end all wars, World War I, didn’t. In fact, the Treaty of Versailles that provided the terms for peace, created the seed for an even larger and more deadly war to follow, World War II. beginning with the flawed Versailles Treaty, this class will discuss the events during the 1920s and 1930s that brought about the carnage, beginning with the German blitzkrieg of Poland, in 1939. Do the problems of this period have relevance today? Or as Santayana said, “Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.”
Course Fee: $30
