March 13th 1920 - Kapp Putsch


March 13th 1920: The so-called Kapp Putsch brakes out in Berlin.

The coup was a crucial test for the young republic. While right-wing military were preparing for a takeover of power under Lüttwitz guidance and proclaimed the East Prussian countryside Director General Wolfgang Kapp as the new chancellor the Ebert's government called for a general strike. With success. Last but not least the coup attempt collapsed due to the disunity among the insurgents. The Republic appeared saved.
