The Reichstag fire was an arson attack on the Reichstag building (home of the German parliament) in Berlin on 27 February 1933, just one month after Adolf Hitler had been sworn in as Chancellor of Germany. The Nazis stated that Marinus van der Lubbe, a Dutch council communist, was found near the building. The Nazis publicly blamed the fire on communist agitators in general, although in a German court in 1933, it was decided that Van Der Lubbe had acted alone, as he claimed to have done. After the fire, the Reichstag Fire Decree was passed. The fire was used as evidence by the Nazi Party that communists were plotting against the German government. The event is seen as pivotal in the establishment of Nazi Germany.
Created in 1927, Keystone was the first big photo press agency to have international offices (London, Berlin, New York, etcâ€¦). Since its creation, it has produced a number of stories covering the four corners of the world and all types of subjects (arts, sciences, everyday life, industry, great political, sporting and cultural events). Numerous collections were also acquired allowing a collection to be built up of more than 15 million photographs which show history, personalities and arts over a period from antiquity to this day and age (1985). From the Russian Revolution to the advent of the Third Reich, from the First World War to the Camp David Accords, the essence of the 20th century is illustrated in the Keystone collection.
