"Der Eisbrecher" was the magazine for the Bundische youth movement. From July 1930, Eberhard Koebel published the journal "Das Lagerfeuer" and because of financial problems, he ceased publication. Then with Günther Wolff, he founded "Der Eisbrecher". Koebel could not publicly be listed as an editor since he publicly declared his support for communism. The first edition appeared in October 1932. From 1933-1935. Koebel edited the magazine behind the scenes. This ended with his arrest. After Koebel immigrated to London, his articles began appearing under a pseudonym. By June 1935, the Gestapo banned "Der Eisbrecher" in connection with the persecution of the Bündische Jugend.
