The website is also available in English (© Weimarer Republik e.V.)

The Weimar Republic is also known outside of Germany. Especially in English-speaking countries and contexts, extensive research is conducted on the first German democracy, its achievements and its demise. Weimarer Republik e.V. has taken this into account by having major parts of its on-line platform translated into English. The largest sections in English are the timeline of the Weimar Republic and the presentation of its most important figures. This translation contributes content that was not previously available in English in this form.
Some areas are still to be translated, such as the city tour of Weimar and the contents of the touring exhibition. We are still looking for the best ways to make sure that the news and events sections are updated as needed.
