On Friday, 9 November 2018, Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier remembered the turbulent history of the “Day of German Fate” at the German Bundestag. 100 years ago, on 9 November 1918, Philipp Scheidemann of the Social Democrats proclaimed the first German Republic. The Night of Broken Glass on 9 November 1938 was a clear harbinger of the annihilation of the Jewish population that followed. It was the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989 that heralded the peaceful reunification of Germany.
