Seliger community

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Seliger congregation (alliance of Sudeten German Social Democrats) was founded on June 4, 1951 in Munich . It was named after the first chairman of the German Social Democratic Workers' Party (DSAP) in Czechoslovakia , Josef Seliger .

Together with the German-Bohemian and German-Moravian Social Democrats who were expelled to Germany during this period and who remained in the countries of exile , the Seliger community is responsible for the political and intellectual legacy of the former DSAP.

Their chairmen and leading members belonged to the SPD - politician Richard Reitzner , Ernst Paul , Wenzel Jaksch , Volkmar Gabert and Peter Glotz .

On October 20, 2007, Helmut Eikam and Albrecht Schläger were re-elected as chairmen in Brannenburg .
