Conference Tables in History

| No Comments
This 1919 political cartoon about the Paris Peace Conference shows Georges Clemenceau, prime minister of France, inviting German delegates to sit at a conference table with spiked chairs, manacles at each seat, and platters of cactus and nettle. The cartoon reflects German fears that the Treaty of Versailles, created at the conference, would mean harsh terms towards Germany.
