Historian Heinrich von Treitschke (1880)
Heinrich von Treitschke (1834-1896) was a nationalist historian of the “Borussian” school of historiography. In November 1879, he unleashed the “Berlin Antisemitism Conflict” with the ringing words: “The Jews are our misfortune.” This photograph by W. Höfert was taken around 1880.
