Witnesses to the Treaty of Versailles, including Arnold Toynbee and the German representative to the peace talks, discuss the harsh terms of the Treaty and the consequences it will have for Germany and Europe in future years. They mention that the Treaty will bankrupt Germany and severely impair its ability to conduct reparations in the aftermath of the war. German representatives are also outraged that the Treaty requires Germany to accept blame for the war.
