Ernst Thälmann is born in Hamburg. As leader of the Communist Party in Germany, he will be a huge thorn in the side of the Nazi Party. For this reason he will be one of the first arrested by the Gestapo when the Nazis seize power in 1933.

They hold Ernst Thälmann in solitary confinement for eleven years and murder him in 1944 on Adolf Hitler's orders.
