Storyboard Text

  • After the treaty of Versailles, Germany couldn't pay it's second sum. The French got impatient, so decided to go to Ruhr, to take Germany's industrial products instead as payment.
  • Seeing this, the German government then ordered the workers to stop working and go on strike. Some factories were destroyed so the French couldn't bring it's own workers to produce the products.
  • But as the workers were striking, they did not get paid. So to pay these workers, the government chose to print more and more money, which caused hyperinflation.
  • As the Germans continued to strike, the French got angrier and caused deaths and injuries on both sides.
  • As the situation became worse, Germany printed more and more money until the price of an egg would be billions or trillions of marks.
