Siegi Moos was an active anti-Nazi  1928-1933 in Berlin, a time which ended with the Nazis gaining power and Siegi going underground, before escaping Germany altogether. Little publicity is given to anti-Nazi movement in Germany, which Siegi’s activities shed light on. Although many of the organisations which make up this movement were originally established or supported by the German Communist Party (KPD), they were in practice semi-autonomous. Indeed, the Red Front, a crucial – and from 1929,  illegal – organisation of which Siegi was an active member, and which was key in protecting working class communities against both the growing strength of the SA and the police, was far more alert to the Nazi threat than , Merliyn suggests, the Central Committee of the KPD.  Merilyn attributes Siegi’s greater awareness to his growing up in Bavaria and witnessing first the rise and fall of the Soviet Republic in 1918/19 and then the rise and rise of the ultra-right.’
