Spa Conference

Allied officers of the Armistice Commission at Spa

The Spa Conference was a meeting between the Alexandre Millerand, German Chancellor Constantin Fehrenbach. The Conference mainly discussed disarmament of Germany and war reparations required by the Treaty of Versailles.[1]

The conference also discussed the territorial dispute over Cieszyn Silesia between the Second Polish Republic and Czechoslovakia. After the conference, on 28 July 1920, the territory was divided between the states leaving Zaolzie with a sizable Polish minority on the Czech side of the border. This division also created further future animosities between these two countries.[2]
