Weimar Republic


The Weimar Republic is the "name commonly applied to Germany in the post–World War I period, from 1919 to 1933, with particular significance in the realms of politics and the arts. In 1919 the Bavarian city of Weimar was the scene of the national assembly that established the government known as the Weimar Republic, the first representative government in German history."
