Alois Neurath

Alois Neurath (29 August 1886 Vienna – 25 April 1955 Stockholm) was a Sudeten German dissident communist activist who later joined the Swedish Social Democratic Party.[1]

Neurath was a founding member of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (German Division), becoming Party secretary in 1921.[1] He also became a member of the Executive Committee of the Communist International where he supported Zinoviev.[1]

In June 1929, following the emergence of the new party leadership under Klement Gottwald, he was expelled from the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia and joined a new parliamentary club called Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (Leninists).[2]
