GERMANY RUHR FRENCH OCCUPATION

French tank crews, in an Essen street, take a break during the occupation of the Ruhr area of Germany, Jan. 9, 1923 as a means of reprisal after Germany proved incapable of fulfilling reparation payments demanded from it according to the Versailles Treaty. The German government answered with "passive resistance," which meant that coal miners and railway workers refused to obey any instructions by the occupation forces.(AP Photo)
