Treaty of Trianon
Transcript of Treaty of Trianon
The population was reduced from 20.9 million to 7.6 million
its army was reduced to 35,000 men with no conscription
they were not allowed to access the Mediterranean. A 'Hungarian Tragedy' Hungary had to pay for losing the war and causing other countries to suffer.
Hungary was the loser, because it lost a lot of land.
The new countries that formed out of Hungary received land, people and industry so they were the winners (Slovakia, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia).
Three major parts of territory were transferred to Romania Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia. No. This treaty affected many innocent people, many had to relocate and families split.
President Wilson said, "The proposal to dismember Austria is absurd." but he did nothing to stop it.
Later on Winston Churchill said,"Ancient poets and theologians could not imagine such suffering, which Trianon brought to the innocent.” he was right. Why it was not fair for the Hungarians
The League of Nations forced Hungary to give up nearly 75% of its territory.
With this, they lost 90% of all resources, railways, industries, and other infrastructures.
They had to split with families and relatives when the borders were being drawn, and was a huge traumatic moment for them.
Why it was fair
Serbians, Slovs, etc actually wanted independence, so were happy when they split.
One big (bad) effect that the Treaty of Trianon caused was the degrading of the Hungarian Economy. The downfall of their economy caused the suspension of their debts towards reparations.
This caused the neighbouring states that relied on Hungary to also fall economically. SOURCES http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/history/mwh/ir1/thetreatyrev3.shtml
