EINSTEIN, ALBERT; SCHRÖDINGER, ERWIN; BUBER, MARTIN; et al.].List of Displaced German Scholars.London Autumn 1936. 125p. soft cover.Good condition some tears stains and time signs etc'.VERY RARE FIRST EDITION OF AN IMPORTANT DOCUMENT OF 20TH-CENTURY JEWISH INTELLECTUAL AND CULTURAL HISTORY.“Beginning in 1933, the AAC [Academic Assistance Council] set up a card system for all those who arrived seeking aid. Each émigré had to fill out a questionnaire stating name, age, area of expertise, religion, reason for dismissal, former income, language skills, preferred country and additional family members. A curriculum vitae and references were also required. This information became the basis of the List of Displaced German Scholars. Published by the AAC in 1936, the List was compiled by comparing various lists with the names of dismissed scientists and scholars and broken down according to discipline. All in all, it contained 1,624 scholars... This publication still serves as the basis for any research on exiled scholars today.” -Birgit Bergmann, Transcending Tradition: Jewish Mathematicians in German Speaking Academic Culture“Two months after Adolf Hitler was appointed chancellor, the German government issued the Gesetz zur Wiederherstellung des Berufsbeamtentums—the Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service. With some exceptions, none of which lasted for long, the 7 April 1933 law ordered that those in government positions who had at least one Jewish grandparent or were political opponents of the Nazi Party be immediately dismissed. Thousands of people lost their jobs as teachers, judges, police officers, and academics at the country’s top universities.
