Even the most peace-loving German democratic politicians, eager to finally take charge of politics after decades of sitting in a powerless parliament, had to make a heart- breaking decision, to sign a peace treaty Germany needed (the peace) but which their conscience declined; it was signed for raison d'etat in June 1919.
Yet many of Germany's ruling elite, in state administration, army, public service such as police, school, in the justice system still felt loyal if not to the Emperor so to the Empire.

However, when Germany became a united country in 1871, the "Lied der Deutschen" was ignored officially, rather the the former Prussian royal anthem "Heil Dir im Siegerkranz" was used unofficially.
And when West and East Germany were founded in 1949, initially neither state wished to use the "Lied der Deutschen" because of its association with the Nazi government and its misuse of the sentiment in the lyrics.
After Germany had become reunified on 3rd October 1990, Federal President Richard von Weizsaecker confirmed in a letter to Chancellor Helmut Kohl, dated 19th August 1991, that the third verse of Hoffmann von Fallersleben's "Lied der Deutschen" with Joseph Haydn's melody are the official national anthem of the reunified Germany.

It is not widely known that Hitler's extermination policies began with the widespread killing of institutionalized disabled people in Germany in the 1940s, and that the eugenics theories that were the basis for Hitler's policies originated in the United States in the 1920s.
Germany, however, was the only country in which the political climate allowed materialization of the final goal of sterilization and euthanasia.
The extermination program in Nazi Germany caused eugenics theorists in the United States and Europe to backpedal on their beliefs about eliminating mental illness and congenital disabilities through euthanasia.

When the Second Congress of the Communist Party of Germany, which was held in Heidelberg in October 1919, expelled the opposition, the latter formed the so-called Communist Workers’ Party of Germany, in April 1920.
An important place in the work of the Congress was held by the question of trade unions, which was considered from the viewpoint of adapting the entire work of the trade unions to the accomplishment of the economic tasks.

Germany was neither crushed nor conciliated, which, in retrospect, did not bode well for the future of Germany, Europe or the world as a whole.
