Eduard Edert (born August 31, 1880 in Oldesloe ; † August 27, 1967 in Heikendorf ) was a German politician and writer .

Live and act

During his studies, Edert was the founder of the Association of Abstinent Students , from which the German Association of Abstinent Students emerged .

Edert worked as a senior teacher in Kiel around 1910 and appeared there as a promoter of the wandering bird . He played a key role in the financing of the Landheim des Kieler Wandervogel, which still exists today, on the Westensee.

From 1921 to 1933 he was a high school supervisor in Flensburg and was entrusted several times with solving problems between Germans and Danes. During the National Socialist rule Edert was temporarily banned from working. He was then transferred from Flensburg to Magdeburg as a senior school officer. In 1935 he joined the National Socialist Teachers' Association and became a member of the NSDAP on January 1, 1940 ( membership number 7,367,371).

From 1946 until he retired in 1949, he was the managing director of the Schleswig-Holstein Ministry of Education.

When the first federal election was due in 1949, the CDU , FDP and DP agreed on Edert as a non-party candidate, realizing that only a common candidate from the bourgeois parties would prevent the SSW from winning the election in the Flensburg constituency . Edert was elected directly to parliament with a large margin over the SSW applicants (48.0% compared to 31.4%) and the SPD (15.1%). He belonged to the German Bundestag in the first legislative period (1949-1953) and joined the CDU / CSU parliamentary group there as an intern. From 1950 to 1954 Edert was a member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe .

In addition to some political treatises, Edert's literary work consists of stories that take place in his home in Schleswig-Holstein. He was also editor of the magazine of the Schleswig-Holstein Homeland Federation , Schleswig-Holstein .
