Advertisement of the German Communist Party, "Those who take nothing from the rich can give nothing to the poor."
The German Communist Party (German: Deutsche Kommunistische Partei) was formed in West Germany in 1968, in order to fill the place of the Communist Party of Germany, which was banned in 1956.

The Communist Party of Germany (in German, Kommunistische Partei Deutschlands â KPD) was formed in December of 1918 from the Spartacist League, which originated as a small factional grouping within the Social Democratic Party (SPD), and the International Communists of Germany (IKD). ... 1956 was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
Germany's KPD became the largest CommunistParty outside the Soviet Union and was fairly successful in elections to the Reichstag: 62 (May, 1924), 45 (December, 1924), 54 (May, 1928), 77 (September, 1930), 89 (July, 1932) and 100 (November, 1932).
Ernst Thalmann emerged as the leader of the KPD and was the party's presidential candidate in 1932.
Communists are willing to work with Catholics for religious liberty, and if, as an underground worker told me, half of a group of Socialists working with Communists in getting out a paper turn Communist, such an event is the outcome of an experience and not the focus of the movement.
To say that is to condemn the CommunistParty to the role of a passive observer of the class battles of the proletariat.
The merit of the GermanCommunists is precisely that they did not allow themselves to be scared by talk about "the framework of the trade unions" and went beyond this framework by organising the struggle of the non-organised workers against the will of the trade union bureaucrats.
Is the GermanCommunistParty to be or not to be organised and united, with an iron internal discipline?
