Versailles Conference Reenactment

After four years of harsh fighting, the victorious powers come together to negotiate the peace treaty that was supposed to end the last war.

Horrified at the tremendous losses sustained by every party, heads-of-state meet in order to shape what the ultimate peace treaty, the last one the world will ever need, will look like.

Everyone wants to make peace, but they are also there to make sure that their brave citizens didn’t die for nothing and that their future on the global scene is secure.
