German politician and a member of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (German: Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands, SPD) since 1945. From 1949 to 1969, Arndt was a member of the Bundestag for the SPD.
After passing his second law examination and promotion in Marburg in 1927, he worked as a lawyer in the famous law firm of Prof. Dr. Max Alsberg. Since 1932, he worked as a judge, but retired in 1933, stating he did not want to join the Nazi Party. Thus, he joined the law firm of Fritz Schönberg in Berlin, helping (among others) Wilhelm Leuschner and Theodor Leipart. After being classified as half Jewish, Arndt was forced into compulsory labour in the Organisation Todt.
In August 1945, Arndt was approved as a lawyer and notary in Marburg. In November 1945, he became Ministerialrat (Head of Division) of Criminal law at the Ministry of Justice of Hesse.
Adolf Arndt died on 13 February 1974 in Kassel, aged 69.
