The Bill, Saturday 28th by James Hammon

This cartoon shows a surprised and anxious Germany being presented a very long bill by the winners of World War One, the Allies.

At the Yalta Conference, February 1945, for teh second time, the Soviet Union proposed that Germany make reparations of $20,000,000,000. This amount was never demanded but the Yalta Conference did establish that Germany should compensate the Allies for war damages. It was estimated that the damages reached approximately $320,000,000,000.
