--Horst Sindermann, German CP leader, 1930

Are you sure about the date? Wikipedia has this about Sindermann:

"Horst Sindermann joined the Communist Youth Federation (KJVD) in 1929 and in 
1932 became a local functionary in Dresden. The group was banned by the Nazi regime 
and in June 1933, Sindermann was arrested and condemned to eight months of 
imprisonment for illegal political activities. In September 1934, he became 
political director of the KJVD's Dresden branch.”

In 1930, Sindermann was not a CP leader. What is the source?

It was his older brother Kurt Sindermann, not Horst, that I was referring to.


In 1925 Sindermann became head of the KJVD in East Saxony. He proved himself and in the beginning of 1927 was also entrusted with the management of the RFB in East Saxony. From November 1927 to March 1929, the KPD sent him as a student to the International Lenin School in Moscow.

With the necessary ideological armaments, he ran for the Saxon Landtag and became his deputy in the 4th and 5th electoral period until 1933. After his duties in East Saxony, Sindermann became head coach of the KPD in Chemnitz in 1930 and was instrumental in eliminating divergent KPO Groups.
