Joseph Wirth (Chacellor of Germany 1921-1922)

German politician and Chancellor of Germany, 1921-1922 (585 days)

In May 1921 the Allies present their bill of war reparations as an ultimatum and enforce sanctions on the Rhine. The Fehrenbach-Simons ministry rejected the Allied terms and resigned whereupon Wirth was called upon to form a new cabinet. The new ministry then accepted the Allied terms for 132 Billion marks plus proceeds of 25% duty on all German goods.

When the League of Nations announces the partition of Upper Silesia between Germany and Poland a wave of wild excitement moves over the country and the value in exchange for the mark goes down 25% to 750 to the pound. Wirth believed Poland must be destroyed. The Upper Silesian area was rich in industrialization and its partition away from Germany would further tax the nation's ability to pay the war reparations. Political tensions in Berlin became acute.

On 24 June 1922 Rathenau is assassinated by rightist extremists and Wirth becomes Foreign Minister again. He serves as Minister of the Interior 1930-1931.

Wirth died on 3 January 1956, Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany.
