Friedrich Nietzsche is appointed professor of philology at the University of Basel, Switzerland. Friedrich Nietzsche is a German philologist and philosopher who becomes best known for an iconoclastic style, aphoristic writings, and his harsh critique of religion and contemporary ideas about morality.

Friedrich Nietzsche's sister, a virulent anti-semite, will end up controlling all of his papers on this death and she will work hard to ensure that his legacy can be used to support anti-semitic politics and the Nazi regime - a goal that can only be achieved through significant editing of Nietzsche's works.
