(Catalogue ref: ZPER 34/154, reproduced by permission of the Illustrated London News Picture Library)
  • This image shows all the leaders who were involved in the negotiations at the Peace Conference in Versailles.
  • The event shown here was the final signing of the treaty on 28 June 28 1919 (when the German delegation signed the Treaty of Versailles).
  • There were many more officials and politicians involved in the peace talks from January 1919. The leaders departed after June 1919, but officials and less important politicians from various countries continued talking until 1923 to sort out all the details of treaties with Germany's allies.
  • They also discussed many of the issues that had to be sorted out by the League of Nations.
