Summary

How did Munich and Budapest come to host soviet revolutions in 1919? This chapter presents the rapid growth of the two cities in the nineteenth century and looks at the dynamics of class and ethnic conflicts leading up to World War I. The chapter argues that although the cities were considered “bourgeois” the roots of the revolutionary labor movements and also the racial tensions of antisemitism were present in them both before the war.
