Detailed infographic and map illustrating the various nationalities of the regions conquered by Germany during World War I, which would require "reorganization" under the Treaty of Peace.

The map title includes the following quote from the Allies response to Wilson's note of December 19, 1916.

The civilised world knows that the aims of the Allies include --- the reorganization of Europe, guaranteed by a stable settlement, based alike upon the principle of nationalities and on the right which all peoples, whether small or great, have to the enjoyment of full security and free economic development.

The map illustrates the cultural disbursement of several ethnic groups impacted by the war, including Lithuanians, Sorabians, Jewish Colonies in Palestine, Nestorians, Armenians, Kurds, Turks, Lazes, and a broad disbursement of Greeks, with a note that the figures for the Ottoman Empire are "conjectural."

Another interesting note is the areas labeled as "Expropriations of the German Ansiedelungs Commission," which was created in 1886 to allow Prussian Settlers (Colonists) to expropriate lands in the lands that formerly belonged to Poland, even if this required taking the lands from the locals without their consent.

The map comes with a 4-page pamphlet that describes the preservation of the Central Powers’ empire as requiring the perpetual slavery of its inhabitants, thereby describing World War I as a fight for liberty and against oppression.
