On February 24, 1848, Paris had its third revolution since 1789. The monarchy was overthrown, the republic was proclaimed, and the revolutionary spark finally jumped across the Rhine. Democracy raised its head in Germany for the first time. In THE FLAME OF FREEDOM, JÖRG BONG – also a best-selling author under his pen name Jean-Luc Bannalec – paints a breathtaking panorama of a time of upheaval, from the first revolutionary gatherings to the battles of a democratic “freedom army”. A look at history that also helps us find our place in the present.
Host: BETTINA BÖTTINGER; Text: ULRICH NOETHEN
