The article presents the position of two German liberal parties: the DDP (Deutsche Demokratische Partei) and the DVP (Deutsche Volkspartei) on Germany's foreign policy in the years 1919-1923. Their common starting point is the Treaty of Versailles imposed on Germany, its revision being demanded by all the political parties in Germany. Other issues discussed in the article include the stance of DDP and DVP on the crucial events of 1919-1923 which were the aftermath of the Treaty of Versailles: the London ultimatum, the 'policy of fulfillment' (Erfüllungspolitik), the issue of Upper Silesia, Rapallo, and the occupation of the Ruhr Area by French and Belgian forces. It was then that foundations were laid for the policy implemented later, i.e. in the years 1923-1929 by the German Minister of Foreign Affairs Gustav Stresemann (DVP), who strove to obtain a revision of the terms of the Treaty of Versailles by reaching agreement with the western powers.
