The International Commission, colloquially known as CIS, published all its decrees in two languages, German and Danish. Her we see the decree with the most important regulations for the plebiscites.


The good of the people is peace on earth

”Folkets vel er fred på Jorden”

Danish commemorative publication on the occasion of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. It was presumably printed immediately after the signing, when a plebiscite in 1919 still seemed likely. The publication expresses the Danish view that the Treaty of Versailles was a just peace treaty, and prints pictures of the Schleswig Wars alongside pictures of those involved in the Versailles peace conference and of Danish-minded politicians from Southern Jutland.
