Mathilde Wurm (At Right, 1919)


German-Jewish politician, social worker and journalist, who represented the Social Democratic Party of Germany and the Independent Social Democratic Party of Germany in the Reichstag from 1920 to 1933.

When Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, Wurm initially remained in Germany to defend her constituents. However her property was confiscated and she became homeless, often spending the night on a train. She left Germany for Switzerland in May 1933, where she stayed with her sister, Josephine Cohn for eight months. She scraped a living by doing typing before moving to London on 3 February 1934 to visit her nephew Arthur Campbell. In London, she lived with fellow political activist and émigré Dora Fabian firstly in a flat on Guilford Street. Wurm and Fabian were found dead in their London flat on 4 April 1935, the coroner stating it was a double suicide by barbitone poisoning.
