Germany: Philipp Scheidemann

I received this card yesterday. It shows the visitors walking around the dome of the Reichtags Building in Berlin. I choose this card to honor the 150th Anniversary of the Birth of Philipp Scheidemann. He was a German politician of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD). During the German Revolution of 1918–1919 he proclaimed Germany a republic on 9 November 1918 out of a window of the Reichstags Building and subsequently became the second head of government of the Weimar Republic, acting in this post for 127 days.

The 150th Anniversary of the Birth of Philipp Scheidemann, 1865-1939  - Issued: 01-07-2015 with special first day issue postmark.
