Friedrich Naumann

Biography

German liberal politician and Protestant parish pastor. In 1894 he founded the weekly magazine Die Hilfe ("The Help") to address the social question from a non-marxist middle class point of view. In 1896 he also founded the National-Social Association, in an attempt to provide a social liberal alternative to the Social Democrats, that could address the growing social rift between rich industrialists and the poor working class. The Friedrich Naumann Foundation of the liberal Free Democratic Partyis named after him.

In 1919 Friedrich Naumann was a co-founder of the German Democratic Party (Deutsche Demokratische Partei, DDP) with Theodor Wolff and Hugo Preuss, the "father of the constitution of the Weimar Republic", and, shortly before his death, was elected as the first president of the party.

He is the author of Mitteleuropa, a book on the geopolitics of the Central Europe.

He died 24 August 1919, Travemünde.
