The MLPD is deeply rooted in the active resistance of the communists against Hitlerite fascism and promotes proletarian internationalism. People coming from almost 50 nations were detained in Buchenwald. Here the fascists murdered the Chariman of the Communist Party of Germany (KPD) Ernst Thälmann in 1944. Resistance in Buchenwald was led by the so-called "small Internationale", a committee of prisoners working undercover. While the US troops were advancing toward the camp, the prisoners of Buchenwald overpowered the SS-troops which were in the process of dissolution. In this way, they had liberated themselves.
