The Passing of a Fighter

Goldstein, Thomas
October 1953
New Republic;10/12/53, Vol. 129 Issue 11, p5
The article presents information about late Ernst Reuters, the former Mayor of Berlin, Germany. He was one of the toughest opponents of communism. Reuter rebelled and battled against many things such as the arrogant authoritarianism of his family, German militarism, the inherent injustices of Germany's social structure, the Nazis and the relentless Soviet threat against the independence of the city he led. Reuter's anti-Communism was not of the blindly negative kind. Greater portion of his life had been devoted to peaceful and constructive goals.
