The Weimar Republic Reconsidered

German voters went to the polls in January 1919 to elect a National Assembly to draft a new constitution to replace the imperial order that had collapsed two months earlier. The National Assembly’s meeting place soon became synonymous with the new constitution and a new era in German history: Weimar. The hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Weimar Republic affords an opportunity to take stock of new directions in research on this pivotal period of German history and to reflect on its bearing on the present. 

All lectures take place on Thursdays and begin at 6:30 pm (refreshments will be served from 6:00 to 6:30 pm).

They will be held at the German Historical Institute, 1607 New Hampshire Avenue NW, Washington D.C. Please RSVP by Tel. 202.387.3355 or E-mail events(at)ghi-dc.org.
