100 years since World War I

Political history and Nazi dictatorship in Munich

100 years after the beginning of Word War I in 1914 we embark on a tour through German and Munich history during the 20th century. After the Great War it was in Munich, where Adolf Hitler founded the Nazi Party and made it base of his troops’ first operations. Munich therefore was named “Capital of the Nazi Movement” by Hitler himself. The tour will give you insight into the political climate in Munich during the 1920s and 1930s, when crises, frustration and incertitude led to radicalism and allowed for Hitler’s reign of terror to be established. The tour also deals with questions of daily living during Hitler’s dictatorship, resistance activities and of Jewish life in Munich back then and today.
