Description

In May 1941, Robert Krieps (1922-1990) was expelled from secondary school for resisting the political pressure being applied by the German occupying forces. In October the same year, he joined a resistance movement and was later arrested with his father and imprisoned in Hinzert and in Luxembourg-Grund before being finally deported to the concentration camps in Natzweiler and Dachau, from where he was liberated in April 1945.

He went back to school to finish his secondary education and then studied law at the “Cours supérieur” in Luxembourg and university of Nancy until 1948. While practising as a lawyer, Robert Krieps launched his political career by joining the socialist party in 1948. Elected as Member of the City Council of Luxembourg and Member of the Luxembourg Parliament, he became Minister for Justice, National Education, Culture and Environment in 1974 and 1984. He was elected as a Member of the European Parliament in 1989 and died one year later on 1 August 1990.
