What I do think is that the Treaty of Versailles was a lost occasion.
All the nations that sat at the treaty table had suffered the same deprivation, destruction, horrors and fatigue. All of them had lost life as they knew it and faced a future that nobody could envision. They did have an opportunity to create something for the benefit of all their population by working together, as Wilson’s envisioned.
They chose instead to pursue each their goals, which – in the face of the terrible experience – was only human, I understand that. But had they taken up that opportunity to cooperate, we may have never known nationalism and its hate, WWII, the razing down of entire cities, the death of millions of people, the atomic bomb and the holocaust of millions of lives.

The record for the most babies born by one woman belongs to Mrs. Vassilyeva, from Russia, with a total of 69. She gave birth to 16 sets of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets. Wow!
