Remembering our past

150 years ago in the May of 1863 The General German Worker Association (ADAV) came into being.

It is considered the first independent workers’ party on continental Europe. It later merged with the Social-Democratic Workers' Party (SDAP) in 1875 to become the Socialist Workers' Party of Germany (SAPD), and was renamed the Social-Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) in 1890.
