However, the KPD sought to have alliance with individual members of the SPD making the ‘revolutionary United Front from Below’. By 1935 Communist groups knew that fascism was now powerful and the only way to win people away from it was to incorporate the demands of the working class into a broader alliance with those members of the middle and ruling classes hostile to fascism.
