Redrawing Europe, 02/18/1919

Original Caption: Delegates to the Paris Peace Conference were meeting to determine the terms of peace with Germany and its allies. Part of the process involved listening to demands from representatives of many people who sought separation from their pre-war imperialist subjugation and independence. This proved to be a daunting task for the delegates, especially when there were competing claims for the same lands. In the end, many new countries were forged out of the old empires. Cartoonist Clifford Berryman sums up the situation with a schoolboy, disgusted that the radical changes in the map of Europe had "wasted all my years of study!"
