Im Ersten Weltkrieg brachen die alten Ordnungen und Imperien zusammen. Aus Krise und Krieg gingen der sowjetische Sozialismus, der Kemalismus in der Türkei und der italienische Faschismus zeitgleich hervor. Die neuen Regime drückten der Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts ihren Stempel auf.

Example text

The Gymnasiasten (male high school students) observing all of this with Kerssenbroch, laugh, but still the orgy continues. ” It’s the same old game that all rulers of rebellious states and cities employ to divert the attention of the masses from their real plans—so it was in 1792 in Paris and in Moscow of 1917, and it could hardly be different in Münster. If one can believe the account given by an unknown source, there promptly arrives at city hall the old rowdy and pickpocket Redeker, telling of a stranger who had that morning arrived in the city from without and reported that the bishop, with a punitive expeditionary force of 3000 men, was already on his way.

But almost right from the start this Protestantism in Münster is of a very special sort—it wants nothing to do with all of Luther’s compromises. It is extremely combative, almost to the point of being heretical, which can be attributed primarily to the city’s most trendy Modepastor (“pastor du jour”), a man by the name of Bernhard Rothmann. ” And from Melanchthon11 comes yet another bit of highly characteristic information about him, according to which “Dear Rothmann” has been frequently visiting the house of lawyer Wiggers, who had moved to Münster from Leipzig.

That Bockelson was born literally in a gutter P R O L O G U E (P R O L O G U S) 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 15 is one version that cannot be substantiated. Reck’s intention of demonstrating parallels between Bockelson and Hitler is served by stressing the gutter scenario as a suggestion of Hitler’s own slightly nebulous roots—his aged father Alois had been born out of wedlock with no definitive proof of paternity, and Hitler himself was the product of his father’s third marriage to a much younger woman (Toland, 3–13).
