Albert Schreiner. Kommunist mit Lebensbrüchen (1892-1979)
Completed book project
Albert Schreiner (1892-1979) was a journalist and functionary in the KPD and at times in the KPD Opposition. His life stations were Germany, France, Spain, the USA, and finally the GDR. Schreiner’s political life was characterized by loyalty to the party as well as occasional hard criticism of the party line. He was a military writer who revealed in brilliant books Hitler’s rearmament. In the United States, he was one of the leading figures of the KPD exile. As a historian in the GDR, he was less successful.
This completed book project is part of the author’s project on German communist refugees in the United States (‘Westemigranten’).
