Germany: The Country With Too Many Capitals
Tuesday, September 6 at 11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET  Register now
Until Germany was unified, it had dozens of separate capital cities. Even after the German Empire was founded in 1871, this continued to be the case; there were even four royal capitals, each with its own king. That ended in 1918, but when Adolf Hitler came to power he had ambitious dreams for making Berlin the most impressive capital city in the world. After World War II, divided Germany had two capitals: Bonn and East Berlin. Now there is just one, the reunited city of Berlin.

Join Chris Friedrichs, Professor Emeritus of History at UBC as he discusses this complex history and why it matters today.
