Andreas Feickert (born July 7, 1910 in Hamburg , † November 15, 1977 in Hitzacker (Elbe) ) was a high-ranking National Socialist student functionary during the National Socialist era . From 1934 to 1936 he was Reichsführer of the German Student Union (DSt).
The son of a commercial employee studied history and economics from 1929 at the Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität zu Berlin , the University of Hamburg and the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg . He joined the National Socialist German Workers' Party in 1931 and in the same year became a university group leader of the National Socialist German Student Union (NSDStB) in Hamburg. After various functions in the DSt (1932/33 office manager for labor camps, 1934 district leader Kurmark-Nord) Feickert was appointed leader of the German student body by Reich Education Minister Bernhard Rust in July 1934 .
In this office, which he held until the beginning of 1936, Feickert was best known for the Feickert Plan named after him , which provided for the barracking of all new students (1st and 2nd semester) in so-called comradeships . Feickert's corresponding decree of September 20, 1934 met with bitter resistance not only from traditional student associations who feared for their offspring. At the same time he called the NSDStB under the leadership of Albert Derichsweiler on the scene, which demanded the entire "ideological, political and physical training" of all students for the student union. At Ernst Schlange's request , Adolf Hitler even switchedjoin the power struggle; he rejected the Feickert decree with the surprising argument that the students should “not live together at all” because otherwise they would no longer have “normal social life” and the “danger of homosexuality was too great”. Rust finally instructed Feickert and the DSt “to leave the leadership and direction of the entire student education, in particular the solution of the comradeship issue, to the NSDStB”.
After the NSDStB had tried, in some cases successfully, to dispute other fields of work (labor service, foreign work, student council work), Feickert resigned under protest in April 1936 because the student body no longer had independent tasks. Half a year later, both organizations were finally merged under the newly created office of Reich Student Leader Gustav Adolf Scheel .
Feickert was later sentenced to a seven-month prison term for negligent homicide and hit-and-run because he had caused several car accidents while still in office (1935) while drunk. At the Second World War he took as a commissioned officer of the Luftwaffe (Wehrmacht) part. In the post-war period Feickert joined the SPD . From 1951 worked at the Heimvolkshochschule Göhrde in Lower Saxony, which he headed from 1972 to 1975.
