STOPPE DEN KRIEG
On January 1923 60,000 French and Belgian troops invaded the Ruhr. They took over factories, railways and began to steal resources.
The German workers chose passive resistance and went on work strike. There was no production in the Ruhr so the French brought their own workers.
The French troops started killing many protestors. German industrial production plummeted.
The German government decided to print more money, leading to hyperinflation. 1 £ was worth over 3 trillion German marks. People needed wheelbarrows worth of money just for bread.
The Rentenmark was created in order to deal with the hyperinflation. This solved the problem and even put the German economy in a better place than before WW1.
