Weimar 1919: The city and the year in which Germany's first democratic constitution was declared, in which the monarchy was abolished and basic liberties and rights as well as the vote for women were established. In the same year the revolutionary new school was founded, a school which united crafts and fine arts for the first time, a school which accepted students regardless of their sex, religion, ethnicity and educational background: Bauhaus school.
