German political activist and Communist politician who served as a member of the national parliament (Reichstag) during 1932-1933. He spent the twelve Nazi years first in prison and then, after 1940, in a succession of concentration camps, but survived. After 1945 he became a senior party official and author in the German Democratic Republic.
Along with a number of novels, which enjoyed modest success on the domestic market in their day, he wrote an autobiography, Acht Jahre und ein Tag. Bilder aus den Gründerjahren der DDR (Eight years and one day: Images from the foundation years of the German Democratic Republic). Fritz Selbmann died in Berlin on 26 January 1975 at age 75.
