War reparations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (893 words)
War reparations refer to the monetary compensation provided to a triumphant nation or coalition from a defeated nation or coalition.
These reparations payments exacerbated German economic problems, and the resulting hyperinflation ruined the chances of the Weimar Republic with the public, and allowed the rise of the Nazi Party and Adolf Hitler.
Others point to the fact, that post-World War II reparations were calculated on basis of the damages caused by Germans during World War I. After French-Prussian war, reparations amount was set to fixed value.
