About this Item

Large octavo. 31, [1]pp. Original illustrated wrappers. This early anti-Fascist pamphlet denounces the 200 political assassinations perpetrated since 1919 by right-wing and far right-wing fanatics against liberal personalities of the Weimar Republic. Within the politically heated turmoil of the early German Weimar Republic after WWI, the media frequently used the term Fememord to refer to right-wing political homicides, e.g. the murder of Jewish politicians such as Kurt Eisner (1919), Matthias Erzberger (1921), or Walther Rathenau (1922) by right-wing groups such as Organisation Consul. In 1926, the 27th Reichstag commission officially differed the contemporarily common Fememorde from political assassination in such that assassination was by definition exerted upon open political opponents, whereas a Fememord was a form of lethal vengeance committed upon former or current members of an organization that they had become a traitor of. Lower fore-edge of front cover slightly chipped.Pages moderately age-toned throughout. Tip of lower corner of pages slightly creased. Text in German. Wrappers and interior in overall good- to good condition. About the author: Paul Merker (1894-1969), a waiter, joined the German Communist Party (KPD) in 1920. He was a member of the Prussian State Parliament between 1924 and 1932 and a member of the Central Committee of the KPD from 1934 to 1946. After illegal political activity in Germany he fled to France in 1934, where he was secretary of the KPD Central Committee from 1937 on. Interned in 1940, he managed to emigrate to Mexico in 1942. He had a major influence on the Free Germany Movement in Mexico. In 1946 Merker returned to the Soviet occupied zone of Germany and became a member of the politburo of the East German Communist Party (SED). He was expelled from the party in 1950. Arrested in 1952, he was sentenced to eight years in a penitentiary in 1955 but was prematurely released from prison in 1956 and rehabilitated. Paul Merker died in Berlin in 1969.
