  • Erich Apel (3 October 1917 – 3 December 1965) worked during the war as a rocket engineer at the Peenemünde Army Research Center in Nazi Germany. He then became an East German party official. During the later 1950s he was increasingly involved in economic policy, serving from 1958 as head of the Politburo's Economics Commission. He was seen as a reformer. However, economic reform rapidly fell off the agenda after October 1964 when Nikita Khrushchev fell from power in Moscow.Apel served as president of the state planning commission between 1963 and 1965. His final project, as matters turned out, was to negotiate a trade deal with the Soviet Union. Hours before he was due to sign the resulting agreement on behalf of the East German government he shot himself, however. (en)
