As a student Neumann supported the German November revolution (German Revolution) of 1918 and joined the Social Democratic Party (Social Democratic Party of Germany#Weimar Republic) (SPD). Neumann was instrumental in organizing the Socialist Students Society in Frankfurt am Main (Frankfurt), where in 1918 he met Leo Löwenthal, a future colleague in the Institute for Social Research in New York (New York City) under Max Horkheimer. At Breslau (the present-day Wroclaw in Poland), Leipzig, Rostock, and Frankfurt am Main, Neumann studied law and earned a doctorate in 1923 with a thesis on method in the theory of punishment. His main aim was to challenge the Socialist acceptance of Liberal individualism in this sphere, a tactical concession he considered inappropriate to the new rise of democratic power. He was active from 1925 to 1927 as law clerk and assistant of Hugo Sinzheimer, the foremost reformist labor law theorist, who also engaged him as a teacher at the trade union academy affiliated with the University of Frankfurt (Johann Wolfgang Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main). Throughout the Weimar years (Weimar Republic), Neumann's political commitment was to the laborist wing of the Social Democratic Party. From 1928 to 1933 he worked in Berlin in partnership with Ernst Fraenkel (Ernst Fraenkel (political scientist)) as an attorney specializing in labor law, representing trade unions and publishing briefs and articles, and a technical book in this innovative field. In 1932-33 he became lead attorney for the Social Democratic Party and published a brief, itself suppressed by the Nazis (Nazism), against the suppression of the principal Social Democratic newspaper. thumb left The ''Saxony provincial consistory'', in the background Magdeburg Cathedral Magdeburg's Cathedral (File:Bundesarchiv Bild 183-29427-0003, Magdeburg, Dom, 1000 Jahre.jpg).

roots. Members of his family came to Pannwitz in 14th century. From 14th to 16th century family held the office of Burggraf of Glatz. The '''German People's Party''' (''Deutsche Volkspartei'' or '''DtVP''') was a German liberal (Liberalism in Germany) party created in 1868 by the wing of the German Progress Party which during the conflict about whether the Unification of Germany (German Empire) should be led by the Kingdom of Prussia or Austria-Hungary supported Austria. After a Danish occupation (1712-1715) the Duchy of Bremen was sold to the House of Hanover, and thus became ruled in personal union with the Electorate of Hanover and the Kingdom of Great Britain. In the course of the Anglo-French and Indian War (1754–63) on North American colonies ''Britain'' feared a French invasion in ''Hanover''. Thus George II Augustus (George II of Hanover) formed an alliance with his Brandenburg-Prussian (Kingdom of Prussia) cousin Frederick II,''the Great'' (Frederick II of Prussia) combining the North American conflict with the Austro–Brandenburg-Prussian Third Silesian or Seven Years’ War (Seven Years’ War) (1756–63). In summer 1757 the French invaders defeated ''George II Augustus''' son William Duke of Cumberland (Prince William, Duke of Cumberland), leading the Anglo-Hanoveran army, and drove him and his army into remote ''Bremen-Verden'', where in the former cloister of Zeven he had to capitulate on September 18 (Convention of Klosterzeven).

By 1790, there was a gristing mill, sawmill, brewery, and inn. Under the Second Partition of Poland in 1793, the settlement was annexed by Prussia (Kingdom of Prussia). It returned to Congress Poland following the Congress of Vienna in 1815. On September 2, 1846, the town was first connected to the emerging Polish railways as part of the mainline between Warsaw and Kraków. Following the development of Łódź as an industrial center, Koluszki served as the junction for its rail. By 1900, about half of the town worked for the railway in some capacity and the town developed around the railway and bus stations. The town suffered during both world wars. Under the Nazi occupation (Nazi occupation of Poland) during the Second World War, Koluszki was annexed to Germany (Nazi Germany) and was the site of a Jewish ghetto.

The settlement in the historical region of Upper Lusatia was first mentioned in a 1262 deed. Initially a possession of the Bohemian crown (Kingdom of Bohemia), Lusatia by the 1635 Peace of Prague (Peace of Prague (1635)) fell to the Saxon Electorate (Electorate of Saxony). As Saxony had sided with Napoleon (Napoleon I of France) it had to cede the northeastern part of Upper Lusatia to Prussia (Kingdom of Prussia) according to the Final Act of the 1815 Vienna Congress (Congress of Vienna). After the new border had been drawn, ''Reichenau'' was the only locality east of the Neisse river (Lusatian Neisse) that belonged to the Kingdom of Saxony. With the implementation of the Oder-Neisse line at the end of World War II, it was therefore the only municipality in Poland which until 1945 was part of the Free State of Saxony (Saxony). At first called ''Rychwald'', the town was renamed in 1947. thumb left Tower of the Upper Gate (File:Bad Ziegenhals-turm.JPG) After the First Silesian War (Silesian Wars) and the 1742 Treaty of Breslau the Duchy of Nysa was partitioned and Ziegenhals became a Prussian (Kingdom of Prussia) bordertown, while the adjacent area around Zlaté Hory remained with Austrian Silesia. In the 19th century it became a spa town (''Bad''). After World War II and the implementation of the Oder-Neisse line in 1945, the area fell to the Republic of Poland (People's Republic of Poland). First documented in the 13th century, Berlin became the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia (w:Kingdom of Prussia) (1701–1918), the German Empire (w:German Empire) (1871–1918), the Weimar Republic (w:Weimar Republic) (1919–33) and the Third Reich (w:Third Reich) (1933–45). Berlin in the 1920s (w:1920s Berlin) was the third largest municipality in the world. After World War II, the city, along with the German state, was divided - into East Berlin (w:East Berlin) — capital of the German Democratic Republic (w:German Democratic Republic), colloquially identified in English as East Germany — and West Berlin (w:West Berlin), a political exclave (w:exclave) (surrounded by the Berlin Wall (w:Berlin Wall) from 1961 to 1989) and a ''de facto'' (although not ''de jure'' (w:Allied Control Council)) state of the Federal Republic of Germany (w:Federal Republic of Germany), known colloquially in English as West Germany (w:West Germany) from 1949 to 1990. Following German reunification (w:German reunification) in 1990, the city was once more designated as the capital of all Germany.
