What is the treaty of Versailles, and how did it change life in Europe?

The treaty of Versailles is the agreement that ended WWI. It was signed on June 28, 1919, exactly five years after Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated. The treaty is made up of 440 articles that have been divided in to 15 parts. Germany was penalized the most because the other European countries blamed them for the whole war. They gave up land and their army was limited to 100,000 men. After the treaty was signed there were lots of political changes in Europe. Countries fell apart, new countries were formed, and many boundaries were changed.
