This catalogue documents the Reich President Friedrich Ebert Memorial’s permanent exhibit. The exhibit portrays the great Social Democrat’s journey from a tailor’s son living on Heidelberg’s Pfaffengasse through his fourteen year stay in Bremen until his arrival at the pinnacle of the German labour movement and the Weimar Republic in the office of Reich President.
The first Reich President was not only one oft the most significant conductors oft he first German democracy, but also its most reliable crisis manager and most resolute defender right up until his early death in 1925. Both the exhibit and its catalogue make this epoch of upheaval in German history come to life.
