Comment: Fimmen was elected secretary both of the International Federation of Transport Workers and the Association of International Trade Unions in 1919. He was forced to leave the latter in 1923; he had encouraged a joint action by the European trade unions against the new dangers of war and for the protection of the German working class. Fimmen was re-elected in 1924, agitating for a proletarian revolution in order to establish a union of free proletarian republics.

Vladimìr Clementis was a lawyer, political journalist and communist politician.
Slovakia was at the time part of Czechoslovakia.
