BAMBERGER, Ludwig, German statesman: b. Mainz 1823; d. 1899. Born of Jewish parents, he was educated at Giessen, Heidelberg and Göttingen; took part in the revolution of 1849, condemned to death, went into exile and returned on the amnesty of 1866, and was a member of the German Reichstag 1873-80. He was an advocate of free trade, and on account of his opposition to Bismarck's economic policy, he left the National Liberal party and joined the “Secessionists,” a group which later became a part of the German Liberal Party. His publications include ‘Monsieur de Bismarck’ (of which there is an English translation); ‘The Five Milliards’; ‘Germany and Socialism’, and a volume of reminiscences.
