Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Karl Bernhardovic (31 October 1885 - 19 May 1939) was a socialist active in the Polish and German movements before World War I and an international Communist leader after the Russian Revolution. He was born in Lemberg, Austria-Hungary (now L'vov in Ukraine), as Karol Sobelsohn, to a Jewish family. He took the name Radek from a favourite character in a book (perhaps Syzyfowe prace by Stefan eromski). He joined the Polish Social Democratic movement in 1904 and participated in the 1905 Revolution in Warsaw where he was responsible for the party's newspaper Czerwony Sztandar.show more
