Friedrich Engels: Life, Work, and Family

You will get to know the zeitgeist of the 19th century, one of the most dynamic epochs in human history. How did this century influence Friedrich Engels and how did he influence the world with his ideas? At the same time, learn about the history of the Engels House and immerse yourself in the atmosphere of a bourgeois-pietist home around 1800.
