. . . and Red is the Colour of our Flag: Memories of Sixty by Oskar Hippe

By Oskar Hippe

My experiment, Non OCR'd, 300DPI

Originally released as '... und unsere Fahn' ist rot' by means of Junius Verlag GmbH, Hamburg, 1979

Review by way of Martin Empson wrote:

The lifetime of Oskar Hippe is an interesting one for Marxists and progressive socialists this day. As a tender employee in German in the course of international warfare One, he grew to become a socialist, turning into excited by anti-war protests as early as 1916. Later he could sign up for the Spartakist League, the corporation setup via Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg, yet no longer being established in Berlin for a lot of the interval, following his conscription within the latter phases of the battle, he overlooked many of the key debates and battles of the early German Revolution. still his eyewitness debts are unique,

On the eve of one may perhaps 1916, my brother-in-law instructed me that we'd now not started working the following day, because the staff could all be becoming a member of an anti-war demonstration at the Potsdamer Platz. We went there on the detailed time. 10000 staff had accrued within the sq., and Karl Liebknecht spoke to them from the platform of the Potsdam neighborhood station. i don't understand how lengthy Liebknecht were talking whilst the police arrived. they can no longer do something in the beginning; the gang avoided them from getting as much as the platform. progressively more detachments have been despatched in, together with fixed police who rode into the gang with huge, immense brutality. For a time, the demonstrators publish resistance, and lots of policemen have been knocked off their horses.

Along along with his unit, Oskar Hippe successfully mutinied and went domestic have been he grew to become centrally concerned with the innovative routine in his domestic zone of Halle. The ebook describes the dimensions of the revolution and the impression of the deaths of Luxemburg and Liebknecht, in addition to the speedy emergence of the counter-revolutionary troops of the Freikorps.

As the Twenties built, Hippe turned a huge activist within the German Communist occasion (KPD). He was once usually distinctive by means of the suitable and the gurus. usually blacklisted for alternate union job, the interval turns into ruled through the struggles in the Russian company. Hippe describes the failure of the 1923 stream while revolution used to be probably at the playing cards, however the green Communist social gathering sounded the retreat on orders from Moscow. From then on his narrative turns into more and more formed by way of the conflict with the Stalinist wing of the KPD.

The post-revolutionary interval is additionally marked through the expansion of the fascist move. something that struck me analyzing the autobiography was once that violence, or the specter of violence, used to be a regular fact for socialists. The socialists replied by means of arming themselves and being ready to struggle again, however it is impressive that this violence was once a great deal approximately protecting and maintaining the business enterprise, it's activists and permitting their deliberate job to proceed. This wasn't combating for the sake of struggling with, yet within the pursuits of establishing socialist employer. on the finish of the Twenties Hippe breaks with the Stalinist KPD, and with many others works to construct a brand new "Trotskyist" celebration. For a few readers this can look like part of the e-book ruled by way of arguments one of the left, yet Hippe explains that this was once approximately attempting to preserve the progressive culture alive in a interval the place the increase of fascism is a true prospect, yet with an enormous and strong German operating type nonetheless unbroken.

With Hitler's victory, Hippe's workforce is compelled underground and at last he's imprisoned, serving a long time of brutality and violence. finally he's set free and works at the northern coast of Germany, attempting to make a number of contacts with employees and discussing politics with captured prisoners of struggle. Hippe and his comrades bravery is exceptional during this interval of adverse, harmful underground paintings. this can be no guide for this task, yet you get a feeling of the risks and problems, in addition to the frustrations. apparently Hippe and his comrades believed that Fascism couldn't be over-thrown via German employees, who have been now to susceptible, yet will be over-thrown by way of defeat in an international battle. It was once a correct, if pessimistic outlook.

Hippe then confronted renewed persecution less than the Stalinists. preliminary hopes new mass socialist enterprise will be equipped after the top of the battle result in a different interval of splits, inner arguments and at last underground paintings. Hippe as soon as spent years imprisoned for being a "Trotskyist counter-revolutionary", and needed to watch as others, together with collaborators with the Nazi regime grew to become senior figures within the East Germany state.

At the top of the booklet, Hippe's desire for the innovative over-throw of capitalism stay undiminished. It results in 1979, notwithstanding Hippe lived lengthy adequate to determine the autumn of the Berlin Wall. Hippe was once an activist in the course of the Nineteen Sixties and early Seventies, observed the start of a brand new move and the emergence of a brand new left. all through he remained dependable to the important tenets of Marxism, and the tips of Lenin and Trotsky, believing that the overthrow of capitalism needed to be the act of the whole operating class.

For these attracted to the heritage of the left, in addition to the German Revolution and the overseas Communist stream it is a interesting publication, probably marred through what sounds like a clunky translation. Hippe's account might be distinctive and its worthy searching for this publication.
