English: On October 18, 1817, students from various German universities met at the Wartburg castle (located near Eisenach in Thuringia) to mark the 300th anniversary of the beginning of the Reformation and the fourth anniversary of the Battle of the Nations at Leipzig. As Martin Luther’s place of refuge in 1521-22, the Wartburg was regarded as a symbol of German nationalism. The gathering, which included approximately 500 students and a number of professors, was a protest demonstration against reactionary politics and the “mini-state” system. Instead, participants favored a German nation-state with its own constitution.
Deutsch: Anlässlich des 300. Jahrestages des Beginns der Reformation und des 4. Jahrestages der Völkerschlacht von Leipzig trafen sich Studenten verschiedener deutscher Universitäten am 18. Oktober 1817 auf der Wartburg bei Eisenach in Thüringen. Als Zufluchtsort Martin Luthers 1521/22 galt die Wartburg als deutsches Nationalsymbol. Die Versammlung der ca. 500 Studenten und einiger Professoren war eine Protestkundgebung gegen reaktionäre Politik und Kleinstaaterei und für einen Nationalstaat mit einer eigenen Verfassung.
