“Barricade Heroes” and “Bloodhounds” – The diary of a young Berlin woman on the March Battles of 1919

In the winter of 1919, bloody barricade fighting broke out in Berlin, which went down in history as the “Berlin March Battles”. The diary entries of a young eyewitness throw light on the violent rioting in the final phase of the German November Revolution from a female perspective. The impressive document, which was taken into the DHM collection 102 years later, is presented here by the academic trainee Lisa Sophie Gebhard.
