Werner von Siemens' memoirs now as an iPad app

Werner von Siemens’ inventions changed the world and laid the foundation for many innovations. His enormous knowledge and commitment as an entrepreneur made him one of the most successful electricity pioneers of his day. The extracts from his autobiography reveal how it was precisely his service in the Prussian artillery that set him on this path and how he assumed responsibility even as a shipwreck victim. Right from the beginning, Werner von Siemens and his brothers William and Carl thought in international categories. They spanned a sales network across Europe – from Ireland to Russia. Their eventful progress across the continent still makes exciting reading today.
Werner von Siemens made high demands of himself and his actions were based on fixed values and principles. The company is still committed to these today. In a total of eight episodes, the memoirs show how and why the company’s founder is still an example to be followed. The videos describe his youth and studies, the first telegraph lines, the Russian enterprises, submarine cables and adventures on the high seas, his public activities, the work in the Caucasus, his inventions and finally his importance for the company today. History is thus brought to life in a series of stories told within the space of minutes.
