Max August Zorn (; June 6, 1906 – March 9, 1993) was a German mathematician.

Zorn's lemma was first postulated by Kazimierz Kuratowski in 1922, and then independently by Zorn in 1935. ==Life and career== Zorn was born in Krefeld, Germany.

in April 1930 for a thesis on alternative algebras.

Jens (born June 19, 1931) is an emeritus professor of physics at the University of Michigan and an accomplished sculptor.

However, he did not have the opportunity to work there for long since he was forced to leave Germany in 1933 because of the Nazi policies.

Few people knew why, because he only told the story after significant prodding, but he talked that way because pro-Hitler thugs who objected to his politics, had battered his throat in a 1933 street fight." Zorn emigrated to the U.S.

Zorn's lemma is an alternative expression of the axiom of choice, and thus a subject of interest in axiomatic set theory. In 1936 he moved to UCLA and remained until 1946.
