Historian Günther Gerstenberg: Book about early Weimar Republic in Munich – Munich

The beginning of the 1920s was marked by feme murders, hall battles and hateful discourse. In his new book, historian Günther Gerstenberg sheds light on how the right-wing gathered their strength during this period and destabilized the political system.

On June 9, 1921, Karl Gareis, member of the Landtag of the Independent Social Democratic Party (USPD), gave a lecture in the fully occupied Mathäser about the new Reich School Law and the competing school systems. After the discussion, in which the socially committed Jesuit Father Rupert Mayer also took part, Gareis and a comrade, the upholsterer Andreas Seraing, got on the 3 tram at Stachus at around 11 p.m. Two men also got on.
