November 11th 1918 - The end of World War I


November 11th 1918: After the collapse of the western front, the German Empire signed the ceasefire agreement that ends the First World War. For the Western powers a celebrated victory, a defeat with landslide-like consequences for Germany. Germany has to vacate the occupied areas in France, Belgium and Luxembourg, and release Alsace-Lorraine and the left bank of the Rhine. Even in the countys interior severe obstacles had to be overcome. The announcement of the abdication of the emperor and the proclamation of the Republic led to clashes between radical and moderate forces which ultimately resulted in a democratic government. In 1919 the ceasefire agreement was replaced by the Treaty of Versailles. With that Germany conclusively lost its position as a great central European power.
