The Karl Marx House museum (German: Karl-Marx-Haus) is a writer's house museum in Trier (Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany). In 1818, Karl Marx, the father of modern socialism and communism, was born in the house. It is now a museum about Karl Marx's life and writings as well as the history of communism. == History == The significance of the house went unnoticed until 1904, at which point the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) worked hard to buy it, succeeding in 1928. After the Nazi Party came to power in 1933, the building was confiscated and turned into a printing house.
