14:00 - 16:30
105 years ago, an insurrection took place in Berlin. With the general strike of November 9, 1918, workers toppled the Kaiser and ended the First World War.
Thus began the November Revolution. Millions of people took to the streets to fight for an end to capitalism. But the Social Democratic Party allied with the imperial military to drown the revolution in blood.
A century after the uprising, we will visit the spots where Rosa Luxemburg, Karl Liebknecht, Richard Müller, and countless proletarians in the German capital changed the history of the world.
Our tour will be meeting near Potsdamer Platz — on the south side of the square, at the exit of the U2 subway station, next to Espresso House (Potsdamer Platz 10). We will meet at 14:00 and leave by 14:10. The tour will end two hours later near Hallesches Tor. We will not be using public transportation — the tour is completely outside.
Suggested donation is 10 euros per person, but any contribution is appreciated and none is required. You can also pick up a signed copy of the new book “Revolutionary Berlin.”
People who register here will receive an a-mail with more information on the day before the tour.
