Marie Schmidt

Marie Schmidt was a German political activist and politician.. During the politically dead-locked period directly before the Hitler government took power in Berlin she became a Communist member of the parliament of the People's State of Hesse. Marie Kuhn was born in Egelsbach, at that time a small town a short distance to the north of Darmstadt. Heinrich Kühn, her father was a farmer who became the father of seven daughters: Marie was the sixth. On 23 April 1914 Marie Kuhn married the plasterer Adolf Theodor Schmidt. During the war which broke out a little more than three months Marie and Adolf Schmidt were both involved with the "proletarian" peace movement. Marie Schmidt was an early member of the Communist Party of Germany which in 1918/19 emerged out of it. In her home community she was elected to membership of the Egelsbach local council, she made her mark across Hesse more gaining a reputation as an effective and aggressive public speaker representing the Hesse Communist Party, acquiring the soubriquet "Rote Marie".

During 1931/32 Marie Schmidt served as one of just three women members of the 70-seat Hesse state parliament. Having secured her seat in the election of 15 November 1931 she made just one brief speech in the chamber; that was in February 1932. Following the National Socialist take-over in January 1933, in March 1933, Marie Schmidt and her husband were arrested in the aftermath of the Reichstag fire, they were detained for several weeks and released. Under the dictatorship the Communist Party and political activism were banned. After 1945 Schmidt, by now a widow, rejoined the Communist Party, but with Communism now seen as a proxy for Soviet expansionist ambitions the party no longer enjoyed significant support in what became, in 1949, the German Federal Republic. Marie Schmidt withdrew from public political engagement. After the Communist Party had been banned by the West German Constitutional Court in 1956, as Cold War concerns began to recede relaunched with a new name in 1968, Marie Schmidt joined the "new" party.

The couple's son Theo evidently shared their political convictions. In 1934 he fled to the Saarland; that meant there was little likelihood of close surveillance or sudden arrest by the German Security Services. In 1936 Theo went to Spain to fight for the "antifascist" International Brigades, was killed in 1937 during the fighting for Taragona. After the death of her husband in 1943 Marie Schmidt worked in a Frankfurt post office, she moved to live with her daughter Margot in nearby Neu-Isenburg in 1945. It was here that in 1971 she died
