1929: The beginning of the end

The Cologne inspector Gereon Rath dives into the wild capital of 1929 in the first season of “Babylon Berlin” and is - sometimes more, sometimes less - swept away by it . But it is well known that not all that glitters is gold. The policeman quickly encounters a vortex of violence, corruption and the arms trade, which in the midst of the stark contrasts within society is assuming ever greater proportions.

And in fact, “Babylon Berlin” captures exactly this mood very well. The decade is over and everyday life in Germany is not one party for everyone. Nationalism, racism, crime and death are already omnipresent. Poverty has many people under control and leads to crime, hatred and games for power.

Black Friday and its consequences

After the USA experienced an upswing after the First World War, which led to high wages, abundance and groundbreaking inventions such as talkies, the country gradually headed for a crisis. The speculative bubble, which had been inflated further over the years by loans and new stocks, soon threatened to burst. And in the end it did.

On October 24th, 1929, the Dow Jones crashed on the New York Stock Exchange and with it the Great Depression. Investors - including numerous private individuals around the world - were suddenly faced with mountains of debt. The increasing number of unemployed did not make the situation any easier for the population.
