The German Revolution of 1918/19 is a complex event that has been given scant attention by German historiography. However, a recent change of perspective, involving both scholars and public opinion, has questioned the origins of German democracy and the relationship between the democratic system after 1918 and the one that began after the end of World War II. The revolution that brought about the first German democracy had many faces, in Berlin, in Hamburg, and in other local contexts. Brunswick, a small industrial town in the middle of the Reich, represented one of the most vital and controversial centres of the revolution, from its beginning in November 1918 until the counter-revolution of April 1919
