It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Despite the dates given in the collected Lieder und Kantaten, it appears that at least the Becher songs were published in 1950 and 1951. Perhaps Eisler revised some of the songs for later editions?
Some also arranged for voice and ensemble.
