General strike, November 1918: step into modern Europe’s Year Zero

You are the archivist of a Swiss bank, assigned to destroy all traces of the 1918 General Strike. The story of one of its protesters, Hanna, catches your eye. Will you do as you’re told? Or will you follow her trail through Europe, seeking out revolutionaries in Paris and elsewhere? What choices will you make? Whose side are you on?

Most of the situations in Hanna the Red are inspired by historical facts; some are fictional. The same is true of most of the protagonists. All actual statements and events reported here are sourced.

Updated and published as the real events of November 1918 unfold, the story plays out live. A true fiction with hundreds of choices and hours of adventure.
