The Lost Revolution, Germany 1918 - 1923
In 1918 Lenin stated "without the revolution in Germany we are doomed". He was referring to the dangers of isolation of the new Russian Revoultion should workers' revolution not spread abroad. Yet in Germany the Kaiser was overthrown and it appeared for a time that revolution would succeeed. But as events unfolded the revolutionary movement lost its way, zig-zagging between adventurism and conservatism. By 1923 the revolution was lost and a decade later the tragedy of nazism began.This meeting, organised by Bristol Stokes Croft Socialist Workers Party, and introduced by Huw Williams, traces these events and asks what lessons can be learnt for today.
