QUESTION OF THE DAY:

[History]: What German city was the citatel of art and music in the early 1800's?
ANSWER:

Weimar - located in the former East Germany (German Democratic Republic) - was the home of J.S. Bach, Franz Liszt, Friedrich von Schiller (who wrote the William Tell story) and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the German parallel and admirer of William Shakespeare. At the beginning of the 19th Century, Weimar was a cultural Mecca.

Weimar was also the location chosen for the signing of the treaty that ended World War I, forming what was called "The Weimar Republic". This treaty, which imposed financial severity on the German population after the war, was discarded with the rise of the Nazi regime.
