Willi Richter (1994 stamp)


German trade union official and politician of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (German: Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands, SPD). Richter was one of the fathers of the labour and social order of the Federal Republic of Germany, as it basically still exists today.

From 1929 he was a city councillor and a member of the City Council in Darmstadt. As a social democrat and trade unionist Richter was dismissed in 1933 immediately. Like many of his colleagues and comrades, he was placed under police surveillance and arrested several times. He had to get through the Nazi era as a sales representative.

He died in Frankfurt-Bornheim on 27 November 1972, aged 78.
