Schicksalstag

Schicksalstag (literally day of fate) is a label often used for 9 November due to the special importance of this day in German history. The term was occasionally used by historians and journalists since shortly after World War II, but its current widespread use started with the events of 1989 when virtually all German media picked up the term.

There are 5 major events in German history that are connected to Schicksalstag: The establishment of the SS in 1925 is sometimes mentioned as having taken place on the Schicksalstag as well.

When it is considered that, in the French Revolutionary Calendar, November 9 is rendered as 18 Brumaire, one can also see how Germans who were interested in French politics might have considered this day to be a "day of fate" also. One might adduce the book by Karl Marx, entitled The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon, which uses the earlier November 9 (in 1799) to refer to the events of November 9, 1848.

On 18 Brumaire or November 9 in the year 1799, Napoleon Bonaparte staged a coup d'etat which overthrew the ostensibly-democratic government of the French Revolution, at that point called The Directory, and installed himself as military leader of France, thereafter perpetuating his military conquest of continental Europe which ended with the Napoleonic Wars and Bonaparte's exile.
