Nach dem Abitur und dem halbjährigen Arbeitsdienst in der Organisation "Todt" zog es ihn nach Kiel. Dort schrieb er sich als Student der Humanmedizin ein, was zwangsläufig mit einer SS-Anwärterschaftverbunden war. Erich Topp war Mitglied der Burschenschaft Teutonia Kiel
As a medical student in Kiel he was due to career planning a SS-aspirant, not more :milwink:
