The Weimar Republic: Gone, but not forgotten

kirchner_berlin_street_scene_1913_1050x700Matthew Wills gives a short overview over the current relevance of Weimar’s history for today’s political landscape: “The Weimar Republic has been on people’s minds with the results of the U.S. presidential election and rise of the radical right in Europe. Is there a lesson to be learned from the Weimar experience?  Any answer to that question has to be grounded in the chaotic history of the republic that barely held Germany together from 1919 to 1933.”
