Description

The funerary ceremonies for the Bavarian Prime Minister Kurt Eisner (1867-1919), who had been murdered a few days earlier, took place in Munich on 26 February 1919 and were held as a state funeral by a funerary commission in the Bavarian Foreign Ministry. The day was declared a national day of mourning and all businesses remained closed. The event attracted a great deal of media attention. Many recordings of the funerary procession were made, including these two films combined in one file, which subsequently were screened publicly in Munich cinemas. The film copies were donated to the Munich City Archive by cinema operator Carl Gabriel (1857-1931) in 1924. The films show the great funerary procession from Theresienwiese through Munich's city centre to the East Cemetery. A total of almost 100,000 people were present as participants or spectators. Diverse groups, including trade unionists with their flags (03:27), deputies from Munich regiments (02:57) and Russian prisoners of war (03:16), took part in the funerary procession. Miners from Penzberg and Peißenberg also sent a delegation to Munich (07:32). The cortege ended at St. Martin‘s-Square in Giesing (11:30), where eulogies (12:49) were delivered.
