Event Details


Established in 1918 after Germany’s catastrophic defeat in the First World War and ushering in a new era of widespread social reform, deliciously decadent culture and the most democratic conditions the German people had ever known, Weimar was a regime that provided hope for democracy, stability and prosperity. But it was rapidly undermined by economic upheaval and political violence. By 1933, Adolf Hitler was appointed as Chancellor and the rest is history. Acclaimed historian Frank McDonough talks about his magisterial new portrait of the Weimar Years with dramatised readings from the book from one of Britain’s leading actors Paul McGann.

‘Magisterial, terrifyingly relevant and yet also a celebration of Weimar’s delicious decadence.’ (Simon Sebag Montefiore).
