From the DKP website (only in German, Spanish and Portuguese): "El DKP se reconstruyo nuevamente en el año 1968 en la RFA porque el Partido Comunista de Alemania - KPD - se ilegalizo en el año 1956 hasta el dia de hoy. (...) El DKP se sienta en la tradición del KPD, fundado por Rosa Luxemburg y Karl Liebknecht. (...)". Abridged translation: "The DKP was founded in 1968 in West Germany because the KPD, founded by Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebnecht [in the late 1910s / early 1920s?], had been banned in 1956."

The Socialist Unity Party of Germany (...), the ruling party of the former German Democratic Republic (...), was founded 1946 by a forced unification of the KPD and SPD in the Soviet Occupation Zone of Germany. In 1989 after the fall of the Mauer [the Berlin Wall] it renamed itself SED-PDS, and since February 1990 only PDS.
