The postulate to modify the Versailles system and weaken the terms the peace treaty imposed on Germany was put forward almost immediately after its ratification also in the victorious camp (Great Britain). In the face of a collapse of the policy of an unrelenting execution from Germany of the terms of the Versailles treaty, France launched an attempt to find new solutions, which culminated in the conference at Locarno. The Locarno Treaties significantly strengthened the position of Germany, paving the way to its inevitable return to the role of a power. On the other hand, however, the chances of implementing the German program of revision of its border with Poland turned out to be slim. It seems therefore that fears expressed on this occasion in Warsaw were exaggerated.
