Was the Hitler putsch also Hitler’s putsch? Two new books on the subject. – Politics

November 9th plays an important role in the German culture of remembrance: as the day on which the last German emperor abdicated and the beginning of the first German democracy in 1918, the anti-Jewish pogroms in 1938 and the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 Hitler coup on the other hand, which also falls on this day, which was not chosen at random – the anniversary of the emergence of democracy should also mark its end – has so far not been of any particular importance. The rise of the National Socialists to power almost ten years later, on January 30, 1933, dominated the collective memory of the Germans as a mental stumbling block.
