Public Lecture: Benjamin Ziemann (Sheffield) - History in the Active Voice: Rethinking the German Revolution 1918/1919

18.10.2018, Vortrag, DHI London

This lecture will open an international conference, sponsored by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, on the German Revolution – a historical turning point at which, following the catastrophe of the Great War, soldiers and civilians rose up to overthrow the German Empire’s political and military leadership. The approaching centenary offers a timely occasion to re-evaluate its contested history and memory by focussing on the socio-cultural realm of expectations, experiences and responses.

There is a limited number of places available for this lecture which must be booked in advance. Please email Carole Sterckx by 16 October 2018 to secure your place: sterckx(at)
