why did world war 2 occur if the World War of 1914-18 was supposed to be the war to end all wars?

The "War to End All Wars" claim was nothing more than the boasting of the winning Allies of the "good thing" they'd done to "rid the world of German evil". But all it did was light a fuse that would later explode in their faces.
Germany was forced to accept responsibility for starting the war, so consequently, the facts that have been recorded in the history books have to be distorted to support that narrative.
The initial conflict was between Bosnia and Austria-Hungary, although the entire southeastern European region had been a conflict in the making for years. Also, alliances between countries were common.
Germany just happened to have an alliance with Austria-Hungary. France had an alliance with Russia who, in turn, had an alliance with Bosnia. Britain had no real need to get into the fray, but they sided with France.
This lit fuse exploded when Archduke Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated by a Serbian radical, for which Austria blamed Bosnia. Threats of retaliation were thrown around and the respective alliances readied themselves to get involved as well.
The real problem started when Russia threatened to mobilize its forces to support Serbia. Germany's only move at this point was to warn Russia to stay out of it. They became involved in the fighting only after Russia did. France, siding with Russia, joined in against Germany and then along came Britain who, again, had no dog in the fight.
It might be interesting to note at this point that in 1902 the Zionists had attempted to buy the rights to Palestine from Turkey but was refused. They vowed to have Palestine even if they had to drag the Ottoman Empire in a war to get it.
It should further be noted that the arrangement of the countries that opposed Germany in WW1 was almost identical to the encirclement tactic used in WW2 to encompass and overpower Germany - the only difference being that most of the fighting took place on French soil. But the outcome was basically the same.
WW1 ended after the Zionists cut a deal with Britain to bring the United States into the war in exchange for the rights to Palestine once Britain won (Balfour Declaration).
Because Germany came so close to winning and the damage in France was so severe, the French made sure that Germany would suffer extreme reparations. The Versailles Treaty was unjust and illegal - it denied Germany it's right of self-determination. Germany was broken up and portions were annexed to other countries where the Germans living in those areas would continue to suffer persecutions under laws that discriminated against them.
Because Germany was so weakened, Communism threatened to take over throughout the years of the Weimar Republic. The only Germans that really benefitted were the German Jews and those who supported and pushed Communism. Most of the average Germans were unemployed, entire families were homeless, and starving.
Germans were selling their homes and farms for pennies on the dollar, which were snatched up by speculators, including Jewish investors. The 1920s were a time of degradation in Germany with the immoral sex industry exploding - Berlin was known as "the sex capital of Europe". The Germans were nothing more than lapdogs to those who held their heads underwater, metaphorically speaking.
After 14 years of this oppression, Hitler was elected to "make Germany great again" and like his future counterpart, he delivered on his promises. Hitler's antisemitism dated back to the 1920s and was aimed at those Communist Jews who were threatening to take over Germany and turn it into a Communist state. It was these Jews that his comment of "all of the Jews should leave Germany" was directed at.
But being the conniving politicos that they were, the Zionists (those in America where they were safely out of reach) once again got involved by manipulating the circumstances when the front page of the Daily Express announced "Judea Declares War On Germany!" on March 24, 1933 - just 53 days after Hitler becomes Chancellor.
Their aim was to stir up tensions in Europe to push Germany into a war with the Soviet Union and they didn't care how many German Jews they threw under the bus to accomplish this. A group of German Jews even wrote to the US Embassy declaring that what the American Zionists were doing did not represent the German Jews and condemned what they did. As history shows, this made no difference.
Again, the war involved the "encirclement" tactic and was used to tame Germany - once again.

The short answer is because people didn't learn a thing from all the suffering in WWI. It was a violent period, and people firmly believed in the superiority of British/French/German/Italian/Spanish/Russian culture. Most people believed in eugenics, in the 'scientific' elimination of inferior people from the gene pool, whether these people were black, brown, crippled, retarded or alcoholic. Most Europeans believed in uniting the nation under one state, one language and one people. This made the presence of large numbers of German speakers in Czechoslovakia, Russians in Poland and Gypsies anywhere a major problem. Germans were furious over losing the war and found it extremely convenient to blame Jews. The Russians were bent on making everyone a Bolshevik. Peop0le all over Europe distrusted parliaments and put their faith in generals and the persecution of minorities. The world wide depression had to have been caused by Jews; there was no other explanation. Fascist Italy thought it was a grand idea to resurrect the long dead Roman Empire. Nearly everyone believed that more war was the solution.

World War I was called "The War to End All War(s)" because that was what the survivors of that war wanted it to become. They thought It had to be the last war. No country could win another like it. Their economies were shot and nearly bankrupt. No country could survive another like it, and certainly not a worse one. Another war would destroy all sides, so there must not be another war.
It was more than four years of stalemate and carnage. Both sides were entrenched in mud. Advancing troops were mown down by machine guns and left dangling on the coils of barbed wire. They were gassed (a first), strafed by airplanes (a first), and run down by tanks (a first), with mobile cannons. Huge cannons (mortars) blasted huge shells into their positions from miles away. Cities far from the action were bombed from the air.(a first). It was total war on a gigantic scale and no one was winning until events in 1917 gave a push. The Russians revolted against their Tsar and the Germans got Lenin in to agitate and topple the Provisional government and make peace so there would no longer be an eastern front. The US sent their fresh and fit men to the worn out British and French forces on the western front. That started the end. The Belgians had suffered Germany's deliberate policy of "frightfulness" and endured it but it had been fingernails digging into a cliff endurance. It proved that "frightfulness" was effective and would be used in subsequent invasions and wars.

Diana defeated Ares, but man was not pure enough. So, the lesson was for them to overcome another war without Wonder Woman... then Captain America came along... but he died and did not stick around until the end of the war, so the lesson was learnt. You're welcome.

In part due to the conditions imposed by the Treaty of Versailles on Germany.

The Great War ended in an armistice. An armistice is a formal agreement of warring parties to stop fighting. It is not necessarily the end of a war, merely a cessation of hostilities. No such mistake would be made the next time around: only Unconditional Surrender would be accepted for WW2. But since there has been fighting going on somewhere in the world ever since, it still wouldn't end wars.

It did not work out as the war to end wars.

The "war to end all wars" was originally idealistic, it's now mainly considered sardonic.
One has to be able to put themself in the place and time.

Because WWI wasn't actually the war to end all wars.
