Theodor Maunz, born 01-09-1901 in Dachau, the son of a primary school teacher. After finishing his study he joined the Bavarian state as a government jurist. Maunz had been a member of the Catholic student union KDStV Aenania Munich  since 1920. He became a German jurist, who worked in both the national socialism and in the Federal Republic of Germany, as a professor. With the assumption of the National Socialists he in 1933 joined the NSDAP and the SA.  In 1935 he became the professor in the Freiburg University who made the laws for the Nazi State and Police, which gave the NS regime a juristic legality for their behavior during the war years. In this context, the Kiel School must also be mentioned. Karl August Eckhardt  organized the faculty academy in the Kitzeberger camp. In this community camp on Kiel Bay, national socialist jurists came together to discuss the racial revival of Germany. Eckhardt was a German lawyer, university lecturer, SS Sturmbannfùhrer and legal historian. Maunz remained a Nazi and until his death supported a National Paper with his contested articles. Its deduction, consisting of correspondences, drafts, appraisals, manuscripts and a photo collection, is in Bavarian main public records in Munich, further documents in city archives Munich. Maunz offered himself to the regime and tried to legitimize it and legally grasp it.
