From 1923 to 1940, he was General Secretary of the Socialist Worker's International. Between 1938 and 1945, he played an important part in the alignment of the exiled organization of the Austrian Socialists (AVOES). After 1945, he was in the political wilderness on account of his German nationalist views.
