Although as a sailor I despised politics – for I loved my sailor’s life and still love it today – conditions forced me to take up a definite attitude towards political problems.
I joined the Party definitely in 1923 after having already been in sympathy with it before.
I was elected to the Diet in the same way as at every parliamentary election.
I was member of the Diet as long as it existed until May 1933.
The Diet was dissolved by a Reich Government decree.
