Tillmann  Bendikowski - 1870/71: The Myth of German Union


A vivid history of the foundation of the German Empire

As Tillmann Bendikowski sees it, the myth of German union even today influences the way Germans see themselves and their past.

The central founding date of this myth is the war against France and the ensuing proclamation of the German Empire in 1870/71. With detailed accounts of 10 symbolically important days, significant stages of the path to German union under Prussian leadership are brought to life: starting with the escape of the Welf king from Hanover to exile in Austria in June 1866 until finally, five years later, the proclamation of the German Empire in the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles and the victory parade.
