  • Description

    The West Berlin Communist Party opened its general Congress in a city beer hall on Friday (20 october).

    It was only the third congress held by the party since World War two.

    Delegates came from the Soviet Union, East Germany, West Germany, Poland, France, Italy and other nations.

    The highest ranking visitor was Paul Verner, a member of the Politburo and Central Committee of the East German Communist Party.

    SYNOPSIS: The Congress was attended by other delegates from East Germany, from countries such as the Soviet Union and Poland, and from Communist parties in Italy, France, and West Germany, to name just a few.

    A highlight was the opening speech by West Berlin Party leader, Gerhard Danelius. He reported on the progress made by the party and its position in relation to the political structure in East and West Germany. Herr Danelius said improved relations between East Berlin and Bonn were due in no small part to the efforts of the Communist Party.
