Heinrich Lummer (21 November 1932 – 15 June 2019) was a German politician and member of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU).[1]


At the Free University of Berlin, Lummer studied German law and philosophy. He became a member of the German political party Christian Democratic Union. From 1967 to 1987, he was a member of the Abgeordnetenhaus of Berlin. From 1981 to 1986, Lummer was the senator for the Interior and Sports in Berlin.[2] From 1987 to 1998 he was a member of the Bundestag. He was considered to be a conservative hardliner, an exponent of the right wing of his party, oftentimes even as part of the fringe right.[3] [4] [5] Especially later in his life, he subscribed to several far-right conspiracy theories, such as the idea that immigration into Germany was part of a grand pland to destroy the german nation.[6] Lummer was married, had three children and lived in Steglitz-Zehlendorf.[7]
