In Berlin, where the Party had its strongholds in the old workingclass districts, the slums and notorious ‘criminal areas’, the communists rubbed shoulders with members of the much-mythologised crime bosses of the Ringvereine and attempted to politicise the prostitutes, and repeatedly engaged in campaigns to recruit members of the capital’s youth gangs.
