Der kommunistische Gewerkschafter: Kampforgan für die Arbeit der Kommunisten in den Gewerkschaften, Betriebsräten und Genossenschaften. No. 40 (15 Oct. 1921)

Berlin: Kommunistische Partei Deutschlands, 1921. Single issue of the newspaper for communist trade unionists; 12 pages, text in gothic fraktur type, on decent paper, very good.

Articles on domestic and international politics at the beginning of Germany's tumultuous period of hyperinflation, and amid the KPD's own shifting line. The Party had turned away from plans for immediate revolution (this was only two years after the deaths of Liebknecht and Luxemburg in the failed Berlin Spartacist uprising), focusing instead on building mass support among trade unionists, an effort of which this newspaper is an artifact. Edited by Otto Geschke.
