Meanwhile, less than a mile down the street, the Communists, having taken over the kaiser’s Stadtschloss (palace), were not ready to surrender. They still wanted a full-blown Soviet republic, and two hours after Scheidemann had declared “the German republic” from the Reichstag window, Liebknecht followed suit, throwing open a window in the Stadtschloss and declaring a “free Socialist republic”! It was in this childish way, with two windows flung open in two historic buildings, that the great troubles began.
His cousin Hans-Christoph von Hase visited for long stretches, and together they dug trenches and went for hikes in the vast pine woods to search for wild strawberries, onions, and mushrooms. Dietrich spent much time reading too. Under the rowan-trees on our meadow Dietrich loved to sit and read his favourite books, like Rulamann,* the story of a man of the stone age, and Pinocchio which made him roar with laughter and whose funniest passages he read out to us again and again. He was about ten years old at that time, but he retained his sense of high-spirited comedy.
These forces would keep fighting for years, and Germany would remain divided and confused until 1933, when a wild-eyed vagabond from Austria would end the confusion by outlawing all dissent, and then the real troubles would begin. But as the spring of 1919 wore on, just as everyone thought things were being restored to something they could live with, the most humiliating and crushing blow of all came. That May, the Allies published the full terms of peace that they demanded and that they had signed in the fabled Hall of Mirrors at Versailles.
