The 1848 Revolution

Post by Novelbro1 » 24 Jul 2023 20:01

What did the NSDAP, especially its ideological gurus and the general leadership, think of the German Revolution of 1848? Did they condemn it?

There's bit in Mein Kampf when Hitler puts down the red/gold/black banner of this movement. Possibly more because Weimar identified with it than because of the contemporaneous ideology- it was, at heart a pan-Germanic monarchist friendly movement. There wasn't really a coherent 'revolution'. Just a lot of pressure from groups, both elite and common pushing agendas. A lot of Germans ended up in the US during this time as instability was rife.
