Alsacian Plebiscite, 1936 by edthomasten Alsacian Plebiscite, 1936 by edthomasten
A map of the results of the Alsace-Lorraine Plebiscite of 1936, a key part of the Franco-German reconciliation process that gave residents of the region the chance to decide whether to rejoin France of remain part of the German Empire. In the end, only the Metz region, with its larger proportion of French-speakers, elected to change the status quo.

Great map. But the results of the referendum are not realistic...

After having invaded Prussia for Luxembourg and the Rhineland in the first place and not ending the war even after Napoleon's defeat, of course. France paid the reparations, which were 3.8% of what they made Germany pay after WW1 (5 billion vs 132 billion gold marks), in only 2 years.

but there is a difference between a 1871 france with most of his industry destroyed and a 1918 Germany with all his industry and no harm on his territory .
plus : 132 billion gold marks : what they had to pay
          150 billion gold marks : what should have been paid if france wished to rebuild what it had lost during WWI

France was never fair to Germany, and us (the Benelux) either. And still today it is trying to strengthen its grip on us...

Great map, of course it would only have been realised if there had been a very just peace treaty between both countries.

France could never have agreed to this after WW1 given the great losses it had suffered to get this territory back. Same is true for Germany. The only possibility I see being by a failing Austria-Hungary creating another crisis in Europe and this referendum being the condition for Germany uniting with the German parts.

Of course this is just me.

Alsace-Lorraine should have been its own country in 1918. A buffer state between France and Germany.
