Jürgen Luh

Der Kronprinz und das Dritte Reich

Wilhelm von Preußen und der Aufstieg des Nationalsozialismus

Friday, September 15, 2023, at 7 p.m.

Admission 5,- / 3,-

Wilhelm von Prussia liked to present himself in uniform with a swastika armband. It is undisputed that he stood up for Hitler. But he does not want to have played a significant role on the way to the "seizure of power" by the National Socialists.

Jürgen Luh deals with the behavior of the ex-crown prince in precise individual studies and uses reliable examples to show how Wilhelm not only advocated cooperation between the old elites and National Socialism, but also for Hitler's "Führerstaat".

Jürgen Luh is a historian at the SPSG and director at the Research Center Sanssouci for Knowledge and Society in Potsdam.

Alfred Wegener Museum

Since 2009 the Alfred Wegener Museum in Zechlinerhütte belongs to our department.
As a child Alfred Wegener (1880-1930) spent his vacations there. He was a "Viking of science" who wanted to discover the secrets of nature with his own observations. He founded the theory of plate tectonics and undertook four trips to the polar region. He died during his great Greenland expedition in 1930.
The museum presents the life of the researcher and raises awareness of questions about climate change.
