One for the history buffs

I thought this was really interesting: Germany just finished paying off their WW-1 reparations.

I had been under impression that the reparations were paid off in the 1920's, by hyper inflating the debt away. I had no knowledge of the post WW-2 German government's agreement to assume debts stemming from the Treaty of Versailles.

It is amazing how different the world can become in a span of two generations.
