  • The revolutionary years between 1918 and 1923 belong to the most important and at the same time one of the least addressed and discussed events in contemporary German history. The overthrow sets forth women’s voting rights, the eight-hour work day and the establishment of Works Councils. For the first time the Free State of Saxony is proclaimed. The Exhibition in Leipzig’s Main Railway Station together with the accompanying multifaceted program dedicates itself to the relationship between everyday life and the revolution in Leipzig during the turbulent post-war years. Thereby, the city turns into a burning glass focused on the historical development of the first German republic. The starting point is to put the revolution in retrospect, as well as to illustrate the hopes, but also the fears which the founding of the republic brought with it. The Exhibition wants to impart an important chapter in the city’s history and likewise invite visitors to contemplate the relationship between revolution and democracy
