The Paris Peace Conference
January 18, 1919

In the fall of 1918, World War I had not officially ended, but the fighting had stopped. The different countries had agreed to a series of armistices (temporary agreements). On January 18, 1919, diplomats from more than two dozen countries gathered in Paris for a conference to discuss how to end the war permanently.

The conference lasted a little more than a year. The discussions produced treaties (formal agreements) with Germany, Austria, and Bulgaria.
