Biography

German Resistance fighter against the Nazi regime, and one of the murdered antifascists honoured in Berlin by the stele, Traditions of the German Working Class created by Heinz Worner.

Sredzki was a lathe operator and in 1918, he joined the Independent Social Democratic Party of Germany (USPD). In 1920, he joined the Communist Party of Germany (KPD). He worked in leading positions in leftwing organizations, such as member of the Reich leadership of the League of Proletarian Freethinkers and leader of the Federation of the Friends of the Soviet Union, Berlin District. After Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seized power in Germany, Sredzki was active in the resistance struggle. He was detained several times in 1933 and 1934. On 7 December 1934, he was arrested by the Gestapo, and on 9 June 1936, he was sentenced by the Berlin Superior Court (Kammergericht) to five years in labour prison (Zuchthaus). After his sentence ended in 1939, Sredzki was taken to Sachsenhausen concentration camp and held there.
