Uwe  Klußmann  (Editor), Joachim  Mohr  (Editor) - The Weimar Republic


Between German Empire and National Socialism – the turbulent years from 1918 to 1933

On November 9, 1918, SPD politician Philipp Scheidemann stood on the balcony of the Berlin Reichstag and proclaimed to the agitated masses, "The monarchy has collapsed! Long live the German Republic!" A new era had begun and for the first time in history Germany had a democratic government, women were given the vote, workers had an eight-hour day.

SPIEGEL authors and historians tell of the successes, crises and failures of the Weimar Republic, a time marked by technical progress and cultural blossoming but which was also a period shaped by social and political unrest, by growing material hardship and violence. Their search is for the causes of the downfall of the fledgling democracy and they impressively demonstrate why the Weimar Republic, in spite of its failure, was far more than just a period leading to the dictatorship of the National Socialists.
