Born in 1913 in the last days of Kaiser’s Germany, he grew up in that hopeless period of world depression and mass unemployment, which saw the dying days of the ill–fated Weimar Republic and the ever growing menace of the Nazi movement. After supporting those who tried to invigorate the Socialist Movement with new ideas and fighting hard against Hitler’s storm troops, he was forced to flee from Lubeck to Norway when still only twenty years old. Here he worked as a journalist and learnt much from the Scandinavian Socialist tradition. Once more resisting the Nazis when they Invaded Norway he returned to Germany to help rebuild democratic life — and in particular, the Socialist movement — when Hitler fell.”
