The German Socialist Republic (Deutsche Sozialistische Republik), commonly called Socialist Germany, was a short-lived communist state that came to power following the collapse of Nationalist Germany in 1951. Led by Ernst Torgler, the DSR was responsible for the execution of many high-ranking Nationalist leaders.
Great World War
Following the outbreak of Great World War in 1948, the previously outlawed Communist Party of Germany (KPD) emerged again as a resistance rebelling against Alfred Hugenberg's regime. With Soviet aid, the resistance grew in numbers. As the war continued, many towns were taken by the Socialists. Their golden opportunity occurred following Hugenberg's death.
