Treaty of Versailles, 1918

After World War I, the victors through the Treaty of Versailles - -  imposed such harsh penalties, including punitive war reparations on Germany that the rise of Hitler (or someone like him) became inevitable.

This is one of the most clear cases of the Law of Unintended Consequences as the intention was to make it difficult if not impossible for Germany to threaten the rest of Europe!
