Abstract

In order to "help war-wounded and diseased warriors", red cross-associations were established in 1864 at the instigation of the rulers in the German states. Only a short time after Henri Dunant's historic initiative after the Battle of Solferino, the DRC - now with four million members - is one of the largest non-governmental organizations in Germany and one of the oldest and largest in the network of the International Red Cross (IRK). Here, for the first time, a historian presents the comprehensive history of the association. (Publisher)
