This little book has been written at the suggestion of the Society for the Protection of Science and Learning. That body was the successor of the Academic Assistance Council which was formed in 1933 by heads of British Universities and learned Societies to assist scholars and scientists and investigators "who, on grounds of religion, political opinion or race, were unable to carryon their work in their own country". They were, at the time of the formation of the Society, particularly, but not exclusively, refugees from Nazi oppression, and deprived of their academic posts on one of these grounds. But they soon embraced refugees from other tyrannies. The British example was followed by similar efforts in many countries. The National and International effort, initiated in 1933 on behalf of academic freedom, is still far from completed. For the persecution of free thought and research has become an endemic ill of our time, and calls for a continuous activity of the free Universities. The major task, however, of saving for science and scholar ship the victims of Nazi persecution has been accomplished, and most of the academic societies which were formed in the Thirties to take up the challenge have been dissolved. It seems opportune then to place on record this effort of cultural soli darity for the displaced scholars, and the contribution which has been made to the world's intellectual life by those who were rescued.

Nach 1933 wurden zahllose Akademiker vertrieben, die gezwungen waren, im Exil beruflich wieder Fuß zu fassen. Berühmte wie Unbekannte waren dabei auf Hilfe von Einheimischen angewiesen. Neben Fallstudien deutschsprachiger Sozialwissenschaftler – Gustav Ichheiser, Paul F. Lazarsfeld, Joseph A. Schumpeter und Edgar Zilsel – analysiert Christian Fleck auch die Arbeit und Wirkung der in London und New York errichteten Flüchtlingshilfskomitees für Akademiker. Erstmals genutzte Archivbestände erlauben es, ein facettenreiches Bild dieser selbstlosen Hilfe für geflüchtete Wissenschaftler zu zeichnen.

Refugees from Nazi Germany in the Netherlands 1933–1940

My interest in the 'refugee question' of the 1930s stemmed initially from time spent as an undergraduate at Manchester University, an interest which has been expanded, via a doctoral thesis, to the writing of this book. In wri ting about the German and Austrian refugees who fled to the Netherlands before the country was occupied in May 1940, the main aim has been to re turn the 'refugee question' of the 1930s into its pre-war context,a context from which it has often been dragged to provide an introduction to the events of the war period and the policies carried out by the Germans in oc cupied Europe. A study of the Netherlands provides the opportunity to look at refugees as a whole, not just as Jews, social democrats or communists, and also to examine the reaction and response of an European government to what was essentially a unique problem. I take great pleasure in recording my gratitude to the many people who have helped me in the course of my work. To the Dutch Ministerie van On derwijs en Wetenschappen and the Twenty-Seven Foundation for grants which enabled me to spend time in the Netherlands completing the research for this project, and to the British Acadamy for their financial assistance with publication costs. The research for this book took me to many libraries and archives in a number of countries.

Cecilia Razovsky and the American Jewish women's rescue operations in the Second World War

Publisher: Mitchell Vallentine & Company

This book highlights Jewish women's activities in the 1930s and 1940s as they were reflected in one outstanding woman Cecilia Razovsky. Her wide range of activities spanning more than fifty years and her outstanding devotion to assisting refugees and refugee children reveal her as a woman who dedicated her personal life and her professional skills to the Jewish people. Without doubt, she stands as a representative for the thousands of anonymous American-Jewish women, who made a difference. The book is based on primary sources. The Jewish-American campaign for the European refugees before and during the Second World War is commonly perceived as having been spearheaded by male leaders. Stephen Wise is the most familiar and outstanding figure among them; other frequently mentioned personalities include Cyrus Adler, Herbert Lehman, Judge Joseph Proskauer, Judge Julius Mack, and Morris Troper. Together, these leaders have been credited for their efforts to persuade the Roosevelt administr
