The German Revolution of 1918–19 was a revolutionary period, starting in November 1918 (the German November revolution), which ended the German Empire, and which was followed by a further period of civil conflict, before the formal establishment of the Weimar Republic in August 1919. The following period was characterized by revolutionary attempts to create Communist state(s) inspired by the Russian revolution of 1917, such as the Bavarian Soviet Republic and the Spartacist uprising by the Spartacus League. The non-Communist parties had the army and the Freikorps (nationalist militias) quell these uprisings by force. In this thread, the role of Jewish revolutionaries in the German Revolution will be discussed.


Most of the leaders of the revolution were Jewish:
- Rosa Luxemburg
- Kurt Eisner
- Paul Levi
- Leo Jogiches
- Ernst Toller
- Erich Mühsam
- Richard Müller
- Gustav Landauer
- Eugen Leviné
- Karl Radek
- Emil Eichhorn

Historian Sarah Gordon:
The prominence of Jews in the revolution and early Weimar Republic is indisputable, and this was a very serious contributing cause for increased anti-Semitism in post-war years. It is clear then that the stereotype of Jews as socialists and communists led many Germans to distrust the Jewish minority as a whole and to brand Jews as enemies of the German nation.

According to Encyclopaedia Judaica:
In some countries Jews became the leading element in the legal and illegal Communist parties and in some cases were even instructed by the Communist International to change their Jewish-sounding names and pose as non-Jews, in order not to confirm right-wing propaganda that presented Communism as an alien, Jewish conspiracy.

The following article, although biased, lists various atheistical Jews that were at the forefront of the German revolutionary movement of 1919. It goes on to say that "Judaism is not much help in explaining their particular form of revolutionary commitment" because these Jews had abandoned the religion of Judaism and adopted radical leftist movements. Regardless, it is informative in showing the over-representation of ethnic Jews in the Bolshevik movement of Germany.
