Eugen Leviné: A Jewish, Marxist, Russian & German Revolutionary

With William Tyler MBE

Classes & Courses

A century ago in 1919, for a short time, in the chaos following the end of The First World War, Munich became a Marxist Republic. Its leader was Eugen Levine, who had taken part in the 1905 Russian Revolution. A remarkable and educated man, yet whose story has largely been forgotten. His fascinating final role as a Marxist Head of State is a story of what might have been, both for himself, Bavaria, Germany and indeed Europe. He was executed by firing squad in July 1919 at the age of 36.
