The Death of the KPD

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the Kommunistische Partei Deutschlands' (KPD) policy of encouraging unity of action with the Social Democrats in Germany. In post-war Germany, the Iron Curtain cut across the politics of the united from. And in light of this event, the relations between Communists and Social Democrats in West Germany reached a new low. To address this problem, other western European Communist parties undertook movements towards what later became known as Eurocommunism, but the KPD remained notoriously loyal to its eastern big brother.

Keywords:   unity of action, Communist party, Social Democrats, Eurocommunism, Iron Curtain
