by Verena Kick

This is the first photograph of the section "Good Times." It depicts Phillip Scheidemann' speech and proclamation of the German Republic on the Reichstag balcony, 9 November 1918. Tucholsky's text refers directly to the photograph, pointing out to his readers what has and has not changed ten years after the proclamation. Tucholsky also goes on to describe the mass of listeners depicted in the photograph.
