Mirbach, Wilhelm


Born July 2, 1871, in Ischl, now Bad Ischl, Austria; died July 6, 1918, in Moscow. Count; German diplomat.

Mirbach took part in the Soviet-German peace negotiations at Brest-Litovsk (December 1917 to March 1918). In April 1918 he was appointed German ambassador to the government of the RSFSR in Moscow. He was killed by the Left Socialist Revolutionary la. G. Bliumkin on instructions from the Central Committee of the party of the Left Socialist Revolutionaries who attempted to provoke a war with Germany. Mirbach’s murder served as the signal for the outbreak of the Left Socialist-Revolutionary revolt in Moscow in 1918.

On 6 July 1918 the Left Social Revolutionaries (a party that had been in coalition with Lenin after the October Revolution) murdered Mirbach, the German ambassador to Soviet Russia in the hope of provoking a German invasion, following this act by shelling the Kremlin, and on 30 August 1918 the Right Social Revolutionaries tried to assassinate Lenin, shooting him in the shoulder, neck and left lung.
The assassination of the German ambassador, Count Wilhelm von Mirbach, on April 23, 1918 shortly after his arrival in Moscow, presented a very real legitimacy challenge for the Soviet state.

Baumgarten geht eben keineswegs von einer Theorie des Schonen oder der Kunst aus, und neuere Forschung hat diese Tatsache aufgegriffen und wieder in ihr Recht eingesetzt, Forschung, die Beiser freilich nicht berucksichtigt; genannt seien Hartmut und Gernot Bohme, Wolfgang Welsch, Dagmar Mirbach, John Zammito, Alexander Aichele, die reiche neuere Forschung der italienischen Kollegen--die Reihe liesse sich muhelos erheblich verlangern.
