„Denn das Stempeln is’ uns lieber, als das Schuften auf der Welt!“ : Organisation und Selbstorganisation Erwerbsloser in der Weimarer Republik

Using the example of the Weimarer Republik, the author describes and evaluates different forms of protest by the unemployed, including organizing attempts within the workers movement and self-organization. Until now, such activities from the Weimar and other periods have hardly been taken notice of as a genuine part of the workers movement; they have simply been forgotten. However, insistence on autonomous organization and demonstrations of unusual headstrongness led to the development of a movement of the unemployed, the historical significance of which is gradually becoming discernible.
