German Communist Party activist who after 1933 became an anti-government activist. He was arrested, detained and then, a few weeks short of his thirtieth birthday, handed over to the Gestapo who shot him on 1 February 1934.
In the German Democratic Republic he came to wider public attention when the popular author Stephan Hermlin included his story in his 1951 book about resistance to Nazism, Die erste Reihe. After this Schwarz became something of an iconic figure, featured in cinema and television productions.
