Encyclopedia > Bernhard Rust

Bernhard Rust (1883--May 1945) was Minister of Education in Nazi Germany. He was born in Germany, and served in the army during the First World War. He was awarded the Iron Cross for bravery.


He joined the NSDAP in 1922. He worked as a schoolteacher, but lost his job in 1930, before being elected to the Reichstag (institution) later that year. In 1934 he became Minister of Education for the Reich. Rust was instrumental in purging German universities, most notably the University of Göttingen, of Jews, left-wingers and other non-Nazis. He once remarked, "the whole function of education is to create Nazis."


Rust committed suicide when it became clear that Germany was losing the war.
