What is called as the basic human rights in Germany was violated during the Nazi regime and it was unimaginable in regard to the human rights. Shortly after the Second World War, Germany was in a state of shock with a feeling of ?never again that? sunk in it. The German components were harnessed with the drafting of a new constitution, which was in particular able to avoid the establishment of any dictatorship. Considerable efforts were made after 1945 to develop the protection of the basic rights to a degree of perfection. Even in United States, whose example strongly influenced the German components, the protection of basic rights remained a question.

On May 24, 1949, the German Fundamental law - Grundgesetz - came into force. It established the separation of the capacities, the new operation of the German federal republic and especially the basic rights. This reflection aims at determining the place which the basic rights occupy in the free and democratic orders of the fundamental German republic. If the German Rule of law is founded on these basic rights, then these same rights will also be the supreme standard in the German mode.

The fees listed are the traditional political rights, almost always with restrictions due to the desire to protect the democratic order. They define the right to life (Article 2), equality before the law without discrimination, either positive or negative (Art. 3), freedom of belief and conscience and freedom of creed and religious philosophical, and the right to conscientious objection in wartime(art. 4), freedom of expression, within the limits of youth protection and personal honor, and for freedom of education that is attached, in fidelity to the Constitution (Article 5), the protection of marriage, the mother of illegitimate children (Article 6), religious education, freedom of conscience of teachers, law to establish private schools under certain conditions (Article 7), the right to assemble peaceably and without arms (Article 8).
