Live and act

In his youth, Dieckmann attended elementary school and advanced training school in Hanover. He then learned the butcher's trade from 1903 to 1906. After a short period in the military, he switched to the commercial profession. From 1914 to 1918 Dieckmann took part in the First World War, in which he was seriously wounded near Lombarzyde (?).

From 1919 to 1926 he served as party secretary of the SPD in the Salzwedel - Gardelegen districts , then from July 1, 1926 as managing director of Mieter-Spar und Baugenossenschaft Salzwedel (MISPAG). In 1921 Dieckmann became a member of the Saxon provincial council , in 1924 a member of the city council and in 1925 a member of the district committee of Salzwedel.

In March 1928, Dieckmann moved in as a replacement for the deceased MP Gustav Stollberg in the third Reichstag of the Weimar Republic elected in December 1924 , to which he belonged until the election in May 1928 as a representative of constituency 10 (Magdeburg). Furthermore, Dieckmann was a board member of the Stadt- und Kreissparkasse von Salzwedel since 1924.

After the Second World War Dieckmann was elected to the city council in the first Berlin election in 1946 , but left in January 1947 because he had already been elected district mayor of Berlin-Neukölln in October 1946 . After his unexpected death in July, Richard Timm was elected the new district mayor by the district council in September .

From 1947 to 1976 a street in Salzwedel was named Wilhelm-Dieckmann-Straße (today's Uelzener Straße ) in his honor .
