The study “Wenn Hamburg brennt, brennt die Welt.” Der kommunistische Griff nach der Macht im Oktober 1923 sheds new light on the Communist uprising in Hamburg, a short-lived revolt whose effectiveness and impact is still hotly debated today. Joachim Paschen has consulted new sources to paint the picture of a carefully planned and vigorously executed rebellion that changed the political landscape of the Weimar Republic.
