Dance of death 1923 and its consequences

The Hamburg journalist Jutta Hoffritz reads from her book about the inflation year 1923 and repeatedly refers to Käthe Kollwitz alongside other well-known figures from contemporary history. Her poster “Germany’s children are starving”, created for the Workers’ Welfare Association at the end of the year, symbolises the developments of 1923. The publication was prompted by a “calendar sheet” written by the author for Deutschlandfunk radio about the inflation winner Hugo Stinnes.



"As far as the economy is concerned, 60 million have arrived from you. I have also laid out 34 million for the bill for light and 6 million for Vorwärts. The receipts are with the letters. Then to Mrs Fechter 4 million and to the economy first 50 then 20 million totalling 114 million. You have to deduct what I ate here from the total. Now farewell and greetings, I enjoyed my time here with you. Your mother.” - Käthe Kollwitz to her son Hans, September 1923
