Cultural mood: there is a crisis of collective identities which is due to a number of

circumstances and conditions: (1) individualization process in developed societies,
characterized by "reflexive modernization"(process whereby categories such as social
origin have become less relevant in the explanation of collective identities, milieus, and
social movements) (2) disappearance of the central social conflicts that divided societies
into antagonistic strata, e.g. classes (3) the end of socialism as an alternative model
for modernization, with accompanying claims of "end of ideology" or the "end of history."

was slow in developing. The first edition of the major reference work Deutsche

unenthusiastic response. But the change in the political and intellectual climate of the
Federal Republic that occurred in the mid- and late 1960s as a result of the student
movement heightened public awareness of the necessity for exile studies -an academic
discipline that soon into an endeavor both interdisciplinary and international."

Irving Louis Horowitz, The Decomposition of Sociology, N.Y.: Oxford University Press,

(pg. 75, An intellectual migration took place that changed the landscape of American
Sociology no less than that of American society itself. Indeed, the new intellectual
migration mirrored, and gave voice to, the twentieth-century migration. The coming to
American shores of Theodore Able, Paul F. Lazarsfeld, Theodor Adorno, Franz Neumann, Marie
Jahoda, to name just a few, changed the emphasis in sociology from civilizational issues
to psychological issues from big questions to middle range questions and from a sense
of America as a homogeneous Protestant culture to one of America as an immigrant
experience. But in this intellectual transformation, the inner life of sociology itself
was organizationally changed. It was an imperfect transformation, one involving a level of
politicization unknown to sociologys founding fathers. It is not only that the names of
Marx, Weber, and Durkheim replaced those of Charles Darwin and Herbert Spencer, but also
that the sense of America as a consensual experience gave way to a sense of America as a
series of conflicting definitions. My purpose in this chapter is not to discuss the
sociological migration of persons and ideas from Europe to the United States. It was
less the Depresion of 1929 than the European immigration between 1933 and 1939 that had
the most profound impact on the parameters of sociological discouse and membership.

Cosmopolitan rather than proletarian values prevailed. The German-Jewish immigration gave
a stamp of approval to Jewish participation in the field and opened major centers of the
discipline to them. These exiled scholars brought contextually rooted concerns to bear on
big issues. The successful end of World War II-with the liquidation of the Nazi and
fascist scourges and educational grants being given to former soldiers-openes wide the
doors to higher researches and removed the last remaining obstacles to Jews entering
university life. Their movement into sociology, and into the other social sciences in
equal measure, tore apart conventional niceties. Building upon the work of earlier
generationa, these Jewish scholars formed new links between local social problems and
global sociological theorizing. Significant new, specialized journals reflected these
links-journals dedicated to social problems, covering the sociology of everything from
educatin to law, and even containing the beginnings of serious self-reflection on the
Jewish condition.)

[This analisis by Horowitz shows that the effect of the IM on the disciplines had
different effects. Here Horowitz explains the case of Sociology which seems to be very
peculiar. Reading other new materials on the historical profession, it should be
considered the specific positions of Rothfels and Ritter, and the new scholarship on the
complicity of the German historians with the Nazi policy on the East (Ostforchung)].

From the beginning Bendix tells us about what is has to endure in Berlin at ages 17
and 22 by the way of religious persecution. After half a century his impressions have not
diminished. He mentions Heimann and Lowe as being younger contemporaries of his own father
who had been born in 1877. RB pertains to the generation of their children who finished
secondary education in Germany but did their university work in the US. The great majority
of the intellectuals among German-Jewish refugees were either agnostics or had reduced
their Jewish heritage to a bare minimum. Arendt was an exception to this rule. Quoting
from the classics was a generational phenomenon which German-Jews cultivated with a
special intensity.

This political scientist indicates at the beginning of the article that "ever since the
colonial period, waves upon waves of talented people from foreign shores have enriched and
nourished, as well as unsettled and disturbed, the complex fabric of the American life. As
history records, the reception accorded to these talents has varied over time, ranging
from attempts at instant assimilation to episodes of ostracism, "know-nothing-ism," and
harsh vituperation. In our own century, the influx of emigre scholars reached unparalleled
levels, chiefly due to the rise of fascism and Nazism in Europe. ... apart from sporadic
instances of xenophobia, America as host country was remarkably willing to welcome new
ideas or perspectives in all fields of learning -ideas which politically ranged from the
conservative Right to the radical Left (including Marxism)."

prodding granted an indeminity to Kristeller. At arrival in 1938, his English was judged
by himself as a bit halting, especially to lecture at Yale. In 1939, he published his
first article in the journal Church History. To receive his American visa the Naples

Germanophone Central Europe only began to seriously work through the Nazi
experience with the fifty-year memorial of the end of the Second World War. When I
was a student in Berlin thirty-five years ago the Holocaust was the great hidden
unmentionable. Today, by contrast, the Final Solution is the conscious subtext of
all public discourse in Germany. Now Germans recognize the problem as a very
personal and familial one. When they confront Nazism they know that they are
speaking of their fathers, mothers, and siblings, their uncles and aunts, cousins
and nephews, and parts of themselves. [Oct. 1995]. From Peter Loewenberg, Decoding

EWK belonged to the war generation because having been born in 1897, he was
17 on 1914. Military service was compulsory in the German army between 17 and 45. In the
Austrian military the age of conscription seemed to have been 18. EWK enlisted in 1915 but
it was given a B medical classification and therefore he was not apt for the front. He was
assigned to a regiment as musical director. According to Duchen, EWK had a pre-war cast of
mind. See, music critic Karl Schumanns comments on EWKs sorry state in 1955 (216/217).
Given his precocity, his formative years might have taken place in pre-war Vienna.

Ruth E. Wolman, Crossing Over. An Oral History of Refugees from Hitler(s Reich, N.Y.:
Twayne, 1996.

This is an studiy fo the Gruppe, a circle of Jewish couples who settled in L.A. after
emigrating from Germany and Austria to escape Nazi rule. The book is subtitled (An Oral
History of Refugees from Hitler(s Reich(. There is a photograph in front of the table of
contents page depicting a long and thick line of Jewish visa-seekers wainting for exit
visas at a police station in Vienna, Austria in March 1938. The interviewees( stories show
that they are a group of non-public figures, middle-class, professional and merchant
people who belong to the migr second tier group. Very interesting and revealing stories
which corroborate the general picture we have about the Jewish German-Austrian situation
in the 1930s. On page 43, Otto Wolman says that the members of the Gruppe were (newcomers
in need of finding our place in society, people that were most like us( , other immigrants
from Central Europe, (people who spoke German, were familiar with soccer and not baseball,
didn(t have much money, were modest in there requirements, had the urge to get ahead, and
belonged to a similar age category.( (Group of immigrants who had new children at the same
time in a new country and had new jobs.( (Shared experiences caused a strong connection
between us which has lasted throughout the years.( (I was distressed about that happened
there [persecution of the jews in Europe] and indescribably happy and lucky to have
escaped.( Feelings about beint Austrian after the emigration: I didn(t feel anymore like
an Austrian or German. That was a thing of the past. I hated the memory of it except I
knew that I had wonderful experiences there apart from the generally negative way of life.
( Feelings toward Germany and Austria during the years. I was glad to get out of there,
didn(t hate my past, we had to leave (like a fire in the house). On page 61, Gerty Frankel
says that in 1940 New York, (to find work was not easy for refugees. People were getting
sick and tired of refugees. ( ON page 62, she relates that her boyfriend Fritz was an

architect and that he liked the idea of moving from N.Y. to California because he did not
like N.Y. and also because (at that time in N.Y. there were buildings of strictly
traditional architecture. Fritz was trained in the Bauhaus tradition. According to that we
had found out the only place were buildings were a little less traditional was in
California.( On page 68, Gerty Frankel says as to the Holocaust rescue efforts that (it is
very difficult to play the blame game now, it is all hindsight.( The experiences of the
different members of the group are dissimilar and paradigmatic of all the variations.
Often wife(s experience and outlook differs from her husband(s. They were mainly middle
class or even lower high class. Most of them were professionals or had done university
study. They indirectly described generally the political, social and economic situation in
the West coast during the 1930s and 40s. Many of the stories corroborate details from
other books.

criticisms of American culture. He wrote Minima Moralia (Reflections from Damaged Life) in

Anthony Heilbut, postscript to his Exiled in Paradise. German Refugee Artists and
Intellectuals in America from the 1930s to the present, Berkeley, Univ. of California
Press, 1997 (previous edition 1983).

Heilbut writes 14 years after his original work and says that the perspective added by
those years has altered several reputations specially the followers of Marx and Freud
after the fall of communism. Another factor is the fascination with biography typical of
an era that values individuals over social movements which has worked in detriment of some
refugees reputations. Heilbut emphasizes the attention devoted to the issues that sent
the migrs into exile. One is the culpability of the Swiss, another the Germans
government restitution of property. Also the international complicity in the destruction
of the Jews. The guilt of the perpetrators of the Holocaust. Heilbut praised Thomas Manns
stand on this issue. 1989 had a desvastating effect on left-wing migrs, Marcuse, Arendt.
Popularity of Strauss among right wing American intellectuals. Other right wing migrs
were Teller, Grunwald, Kissinger, etc.

The 1980s were boom years for Frankfurt School studies. Adorno remained the prophet of
cultural resistance. Benjamin and Arendt have remained very popular in academic circles.
Arendts affair with Heidegger was exposed and Brecht lost his talent as punishment for
his Stalinism. Other damaging revelations appeared about Bettlheim. By the late 1990s
Freud, like Marx was on the ropes. Fuegi accusantions agains Brecht.


In the end the artists perspective proved to be the most lasting. A Weimar cult now
flourishes in surprising forms. During the 1930s, American notions of physical beauty were
altered by the migrs. During the 1980s, the emigres contribution to American
architecture, the modernist and Bauhaus style, was rejected in favor of a postmodern
eclecticism. For a while, thanks largely to Tom Wolfe, the received wisdom was that
modernist architecture was sterile. However, later on, the cult of minimalism helped
return the migrs to favor, as did a rediscovery of their generations social purpose.
Schoenbergs fame survives resistance to his theories of twelve-tone music. Movies
remained the migr artists greatest achievement. migrs contributions to gay

The generation who came as youths or was born here had to maintained the tradition, now
that the famous died out, a formidable accomplished group.

It originated as a term paper in an intellectual history seminar. The dissertation

supervisor was Robert M. Crunden who passed away in 1999. The exiles were ignored in the
40s and 60s and only rediscovered in the late 60s (pgs. 4 and 5). "German and exile
scholarship has never been greatly concerned with the impact of emigres on their host
countries. This is particularly true for the writers, who did not tend to remain in exile
permanently. This study will therefore shift the focus to Klaus Mann's American experience
and analyze his activities from an American perspective" (pg. 9).

This essay examines some of the problems that affected the literary production of
Jewish women writers in exile by exploring the works of several writers in order to
identify the major concerns, interests and directions expressed in their texts.
Indicates that (the study of exile literature was considered controversial when it
was established in the early 1960s, women(s writings was further marginalised within this
marginalised field.( Women authors were denied recognition, and, when the American Guild
for German Cultural Freedom announced a literary competion for the best unpublished work
by a German writer in exile (23 April 1937) several prominent women writers submitted
their entries under male pseudonyms; Hanna Arendt as Peter Schlemihl.

During the same period (1933-1945) the immigration door opened for a select few
immigrants. They were not the humble arrivals of the past, but men and women of genius,
most of them Jews, who were fleeing Nazism. Among these refugees were some two dozen Nobel
laureates. Time-Life dedicates 11 pages to tell the story of the intellectual migration.
The bibliography cites no book dedicated specifically to the migration. It is remarkable
however that the article mentions and depicts photographs of I.B. Singer and H. Arendt,
who belonged to the Weimar generation and became famous much later. One of the subtitles
describes the migration as a vast transfer of intellectual riches.

it tells briefly the story of the intellectual migration and displays unusual photographs.
On pg. 70 depicts a picture of Isaac Bashevis Singer as a member of this group. This
reference is important because almost no source includes this writer as a member of the
writer refugee group. The reasons for this unusual treatment of his work are, perhaps, the
fact that even though he moved to the States in 1935, it did not become well known until
much later. Additionally, the fact that he was Polish and wrote in yidish further
distanced him from the main group of assimilated German Jews. The book cover depicts H.
Arendt side by side with the anonimous immigrants of the beginning of the century. She
would not have liked such company.

George L. Mosse, Confronting History, A Memoir, Madison: U of Wisconsin P., 2000 (with a
Foreword by Walter Laqueur). Mosse (1918-1999) says that he really never experienced the
personal and mental depravations of exile; on the contrary, exile energized him and
challenged him as nothing had ever done before. He said that he was a youth without
direction, without much of a purpose in life. He became interested in history while in
England and later in America. In 1965, Mosse and Laqueur founded the Journal of
Contemporary History. Mosse says that he wrote his autobiography because (an encounter
with (my) own history might be instructive to myself as well as to other, illuminating a
very personal corner of recent times(; ( (his) life contains discontinuities and
experiences which were brought about by the course of history, and when what was
experienced as a personal challenge, in reality mirrored ecents which swept over Europe(.
The story of his family (encompasses the now-vanished lifestyle of the German Jewish
wealthy and established middle class, a sudden exile, a rude political awakening, and an
immersion in the life (and even to some extent in the politics- of the American Middle
West.( On the Stefan Zweig remark that before WWI he never saw his father run, Mosse
comments that (I did see my father run now and then, but rarely. It was considered
undignified.( He says that his (life reflects the often cataclysmic events of our time,
but it is still a personal life: these events are filtered through my own perceptions and
experiences.( He knows that his experience of exile was not truly typical. He belives that
empathy is the chief quality that a historian needs to cultivate. Empathy means putting
contemporary prejudice aside while looking at the past without fear or favor. He says that
he was never able to shake the refugee mentality and remained, in part of his mind, an
eternal emigrant, still traveling. He stills considers himself a European and a permanent
outsider. In order to empathize the historian has to be the eternal traveler, the
spectator, rather than being committed to a set worldview. His, he says, is not eh usual
story of immigration and settlement, nor does it project the usual perception of exile.
His childhood home reflected the (German middle-class ideal of Bildung: the acquisition of
self-worth through continuous self-development in which education, culture, and the visual
arts played an important part. (The decades before the First World War were an age in
which, through the application of personal ingenuity and risk-taking, German fortunes were
made and vast businesses founded (the Age of the Founders, as it is often called, after
those who managed to establish economic empres which left their mark on coming
generations.( (my father made it a point never to talk about himself, and he told me often
enough that one must never talk about oneself, other people, or matters of health.( I was
conscious of being a German Jewish Refugee. (No group of exiles in modern times has been
as eager to communicate their experiences as the refugees from Hitler(s Germany. Through
autobiographies, published diaries, and novels they have sought to make sense of what
seemed to them senseless, to justify themselves and their failure to prevent the German
catastrophe. ( Those men and women who wrote down their experiences and feelings as they
left their homes, their native languages, and their professions behind had as a rule
already made their mark during the Weimar Republic, I know of only a few autobiographical
writings by those who were still children or adolescents at the time. Going into exile is
obviously experienced differently by those, let us say, fifteen years of age (as I was in
1933), than by those twenty, thirty, or even just ten years older. I never felt the need
to justify my exile as did those grown-up intellectuals ( exile has become stereotyped,
for most accounts emphasize loss and deprivation ( I never experienced the personal and
mental deprivations of exile; on the contrary, exile energized me and challenged me as
nothing had ever challenged me before.( (My memory of such unhappiness might have been
more vivid had I been older, but at sixteen adjustment was swift and successful, and I,
for one, never looked back wishing that I had not been forced to leave the old country.
Here the difference between generations stands out in sharp relief. ( My sister, on the
other hand, beginning medical school in Switzerland, carried over the social and political
ideals she had gained from volunteer work in a Berlin working-class district and the left-
wing atifascist struggle.( (However we might characterize and classify emigration, such
personal detail is very much a part of the experience, Emigration (being a refugee- is in
the last analysis always a personal as well as a collective experience, the former
depending upon the degree of a person(s political and social and cultural consciousness as
well as financial resources. Here all previous experiences reach a crisis point. ( This
was an overwhelmingly middle-class emigration, educated and articulate.( During Weimar one
could not escape such confrontations with the legacy of war.(

David Kettler(s Introduction (pgs. 2 to 4)

He indicates that the project focuses on (1) ways in which the exiles variously
reinvented their roles and their pasts; (2) diverse readings of the exile(s lives and
works by suceeding generations.
Kettler reaches the conclusion that "forced emigrations are inherently unhappy and
that they never end."
Kettler emphasizes that the impression that the group of exiles made on their hosts
was in part due to their effectiveness in interpreting their own significance within the
host culture.
According to Kettler, the emigres form in Kark Mannheim(s sense a generational unit.
Despite differences in age, the members of this cohort remained interactively bound by
their common activities and experiences in the Weimar years, notably in the crisis years
of 1930-1933.
For the emigrants, acculturation was a very difficult and always incomplete
negotiation, with generational memories and intellectual linkages frequently disrupting
the settlements that were made.

Lawrence J. Friedman, in his Erik Erikson, Emigration, and Identity (pgs. 18-20),
says in talking about Erikson(s embellishment of the story of his emigre experience, that
(the lessons to students of the intellectual emigration is obvious -that forced emigration
can be a fictional construct for some and a pressing reality for others.

Jerry Z. Muller, American Views of German History Since 1945, pgs. 14-27

This paper explores the influence of cross-Atlantic migrations on American views of modern
German History. Before 1933, there were no historians of Modern Germany in the U.S. The
author distinguishes three generational groups. The first group is composed of those born
between 1900-1914, for instance Franz Neumann, Hannah Arendt, Hajo Holborn, and Hans
Rosenberg. The second group came to the U.S. as adolescents and made their impact around
1960. The most important members of this generation are Fritz Stern, George Mosse, Raul
Hilberg, Walter Laqueur, Hans Gatzke, Klaus Epstein, and Peter Gay. Finally, Muller
referes to the contemporary scene, those born between 1930 and 1940, and mentions Gerald
Feldman, Henry Turner, Mack Walker, and James Sheehan. This article is interesting for two
reasons, first it complements (An Interrupted Past( published in 1991; and, second, uses
the concept of generations to classified the migrs albeit it does it in a limited way
because it does not consider generations previous to 1900 and it refers only to

She describes a middle class bourgeois household in 1920s Vienna and how dysfunctional her

family was. Through Lerne's child's eyes she discovers Vienna's social make up and the
adult's world(s hypocrisy. She also describes the Central European educational system and
he omnipresent Catholic Church in Austria before and after 1934. She compared the Catholic
seductions of Christ(s church with the plain and unattractive Jewish rituals. She saw
class and gender discrimination in the Synagogue. Distinction between High German and
Viennese dialect, the language of servants and storekeepers. Social democrats in Vienna.
She describes the defeat of Social democracy in Vienna in February 1934. Lerner's father
was a medical officer in the Imperial Austro-Hungarian army in WWI. On page 279, Lerner
says that (we [she and her father] still had profound differences in regards to politics
and our views of the world." Lerner is part of the IM and belongs to the younger
generation. Her father did not emigrate and belongs to the war generation.

2003 was a year in which memories of German suffering, experienced fifty-eight years
previously, returned with a unique and unexpected impact. During this year Germany
witnessed a flood of memories, whose intensity and scope nobody, least of all Grass, could
have predicted. In images and reports, in books and films, interviews and documentations,
the media relayed these stories of German suffering with great emotional intensity and
published them with considerable commercial success. The themes included flight and
expulsion from the East, the carpet-bombing of German cities, and the mass rapes of German
women at the end of the war. In an article in the Sddeutsche Zeitung Ulrich Raulff asked
why it was that these memories could not have waited until 2005, when the calendar would
have put them on the agenda and allowed them, sixty years later, to re-enter collective
consciousness via formal commemoration. Aleida Assmann, On the (in)compatibility of Guilt

came to America in the 1930s. They belonged to the younger generation group, those born
between 1918 and 1935. It is an anticipation of a wide-ranging book to be published in
2005. Despite it presents itself as a combination of sociological, intellectual, and
historical research. It is my impression that what predominates is a quantitative big

(192)The Wilhelminian power elite had two characteristics: organizational and

technical brilliance coupled with an utter lack of political, social, or psychological
acumen (inability to compromise). H. Mann had his views on authoritarian Wilhelminian

(194) Germany's wartime leadership generation formed by those born between

1853 and 1865. They were too young to take part in the 1870-71 Franco-Prussian war but old
enough to have experienced the founding of the German empire as the most significant event
of modern history. It was a classic "post heroic" generation of inheritors (victors' sons,
epigones, and "literati"). It is an epigonal generation. The Wilhelminian generation in
the 1890s saw its own historical mission as the expansion of its inheritance, the
Bismarckian empire, into a Weltmacht against the opposition of the other great powers.
Heinrich von Treitschke (1834-1896) is the historian who most embodied Germany's
transformation from liberal secularism to aggressive imperialism pointed to a whole
generation of students this bright future. The generation of his disciples succumbed to a
kind of denial or revision of reality that has been fittingly called "symbolic inflation."
The term refers to the grandiose theatrical representations of empire and nation common
under Wilhelm II. For this generation all that remained of the previous one was the image
of triumph. This generations was heir to and prisoner of a heroic past that they thought
to emulate with gestures and rhetoric (the Wilhelminian passion for the grand gesure).

(205) "The idea of an internal enemy lying in wait to overthrow the rule of
law, an enemy against whom it was legitimate to employ any and all means of defense, was
on of the political-psychological foundations of Wilhelminian culture."

(208) Wilhelminian exaltation of manliness.

(209) After Germany's unification following the wars of 1864-1871, Siegfried

became a symbol of an empire built on military victory and an honorary title for Germany's
founding fathers. As the Wilhelminian empire progressed, the Nibelungenlied -the story-
was increasingly reinterpreted.

(210) The post-Bismarck generation was steeped from childhood in this version
of Siegfried and Hagen's metaphorical significance. Thanks to Wagner, Germany became
Siegfriedland. The humiliation that the Sigfried generation suffered in 1918 was a double,
indeed triple shock. For revolutionary nationalists Siegfried was seen as the embodiment
of the despised Wilhelminian culture: the absolute antithesis of a chivalric and noble

(222) In 1871 Wilhelm I and Bismarck had proclaimed the German empire in the
Hall of Mirrors at Versailles.

(231) "With the founding of the empire in 1871, Germany had renounced its
former universalistic spirit, embraced non-Germanic traits such as materialism,
mercantilism, and imperialism, and thereby lost all sense of proportion and spiritual
substance. In short Germany had lost its soul. ... the Wagner cult as a culture of the
ersatz and make-believe, characterized Wilhelminism as "electric-journalistic Caesaro-
papism." The "brass-band sentimentality and "family-album idiocy" of Wilhelminian Germany.

(232) The German Fronterlebnis, or experience of the front. The so-called

generation of the front underwent its baptism, its salvation ritual, its purification of
the illusions, deformities, and pieties of prewar society experiencing fire at the front.
Having emerged from its trial by fire, the wartime generation was convinced that it had
been called to lead the nation.

(238) The Weimar Republic is usually divided into three distinct periods-
revolution and inflation (1918-23), stability (1924-29), and economic crisis (1930-32).

(270) In 1939, Sebastian Haffner, looking back on the hyper-inflation of 1923,

wrote: "An entire German generation had a spiritual organ removed: and organ that gives
human beings constancy, balance, even gravity, and that expresses itself, depending on the
individual, as conscience, reason, the wisdom of experience, fidelity to principles,
morality, and piety. A whole generation back then learned, or at least thought it had
learned, how to live without any ballast."

(274) German obsession with theorizing.

(357) According to H. Mann, the Wilhelminian empire was the counterfeiting of

our entire character as a people, boasting, challenges, lies, and self-deception as our
daily bread, and greed as our only motivation to live. Another author characterizes the
psychological makeup of the Wilhelminian as combining a fixation with authority with a
striving for harmony, conformity, and aggression. Seeing their pale and impotent revolt
against their fathers and grandfathers (Bismarck is their grandfather who founded the
empire over the objections of the despised liberal fathers of 1848) everywhere in evidence
in the 1890s: in their program of liberal imperialism, in their taste for literary
naturalism, and in the revisionism of the Social Democratic Party.

(372) the Nazi assumption of power as the work of the front generation of 1918
and the revanche of the sons who wanted to reverse the subordination of the unvanquished
returning fighter-fathers to the defeatist leadership of the homeland.

As the title indicates, the focus in this volume is on intellectual and cultural history.
The first paper, by the sociologist Jennifer Platt, is on 'Some Issues of Intellectual
Method and Approach', while the last, by Mitchell Ash, is on 'Forced Migration or
Scientific Change after 1933: Steps towards a New Overview'. The papers in between tend to
be individual case studies, though they do aim to elucidate questions of underlying

principle. The reference in the title to the English-speaking world means that North
America will be included as well as Great Britain. In fact, however, more of the examples
are from Britain than from North America. For the United States Feiwel Kupferberg presents
an extremely short paper on German-speaking refugees in the American film industry; Nick
Warr, in his paper on Siegfried Kracauer's 'extraterritorial critique', suggests reasons
why the wider work of the famous author of modern film studies is neglected despite his
troubled move to America; and David Kettler's 'Self-Knowledge and Sociology; Nina
Rubinstein's Studies in Exile' examines the ambiguous conjunction of autobiography and
sociological theory in her work. Thereafter the case studies tend to be British. Dorothea
McEwan maps the trade routes of the mind through the example of the Warburg Institute in
London; Johannes Feichtinger discusses the significance of Austrian emigre art historians
for English art scholarship; and Charlotte Benton highlights refugee and emigre architects
in Britain from 1933 to 1939. Other papers focus, for example, on Gaby Schreiber in exile
in England as a remarkably successful exponent of Bauhaus principles in her vast design
consultancy; on the Wiener Kreis in Britain; on Austrian motifs in Wittgenstein's later
works; and on child psychology and the Hampstead Nursery. The paper by Andrea Hammel on
German-Jewish women writers and their texts is the only one devoted to exile literature,
though the cultural alienation of German writers in Hollywood is briefly mentioned in
Kupferberg's paper. Though not literary figures as such, Franz Borkenau and Sebastian
Haffner are singled out in another paper as the most successful political writers to make
the cultural and intellectual transfer from the German to the English scene. This book is
the outcome of a conference at the University of Sussex in September 2000. Almost
inevitably there is some unevenness in the quality and scope of the papers. Some are
extremely technical and theoretical, while others are short and general. Some have
extensive notes and bibliographies, while others have hardly any of either. Nevertheless,
the range of the work analysed makes this volume an invaluable extension of the scope of

Studies 11, No. 1 (Fall 2004): 25-31.

As a result of asking Rogger (1923-2002) for an essay contribution to honor Rudolf

Vierhaus's 75th birthday, Lehmann realized that most of those already engaged to write
essays were not part of Rogger's cohort and then paused to ponder he had made a mistake.
"Rogger did not want to bridge the fundamental existential gap that existed between those
who had fought in the German army as young men, and those forced to leave Germany in the
1930s who fought against the Nazis as members of the Allied forces." Already contributing
pieces were "Karl Dietrich Bracher, Karl Otmar Freiherr von Aretin, Walther Hofer, and
Fritz Fellner, all of whom had opposed the Nazi regimen from the beginning." Rogger as the
other participants belonged to the younger generation, but they were different in that one
group emigrated after 1933 and the other stayed in Germany even tough the opposed the Nazi
regime. Then Lehmann distinguishes the younger generation to whom they called Second
Generation Refugee Historians from the First Generation of Refugee Historians who belong
to the Weimar Generation.

that for some periods Capa and Korda lived in the U.S. The narratives of their lives
intertwine each other and are shown within the frame of their common fin de siecle

intrigued Laura Fermi. Marton herself is a Hungarian and this book reveals her own talent.

David Wallace, Exiles in Hollywood, New Jersey: Limelight 2006.

This book analyces the world of the refugees by the short biography method. In 20 chapters
narrates the lives of one or more migrs. For instance on chapter 4 is Alma Mahlers turn
under the title The Muse to Genius. In the first paragraph Wallace makes a comparison
that is emblematic of the true importance not only of Alma Mahler and her husband Franz
Werfel settling in Los Angeles on December 30, 1940 but also of the entire intellectual
migration meeting the American society and culture. The other event of the day compare
with the Mahler-Werfel arrival was that the Pasadena Freeway was opened after years of
planning and construction. Wallace observes that while the Pasadena Freeway set a pattern
for rapid transportation in America that would be both praised and cursed, the arrival of
the couple that was merely the latest of a flood of German-speaking refugees fleeing
Hitlers Fortress Europe that would be also praised and cursed. The parallel is revealing
but it seems to me that the contrast is more remarkable if we highlight the importance of
this two events not only for Los Angeles but also for America itself. All the immigrants
are convinced of their self-importance even in the context of the new and foreign culture,
but in the case of the intellectual migration this strain was a given. Us, the
hagiographers also feel that way but after further reflection realized that we were also
immigrants like the European migrs. The irony is that the natives always looked at them
as did to us- with spontaneous indifference, after all the Pasadena Freeway was an urban,
societal, and cultural milestone for America.
The book includes the biographies of some fascinating characters who were not really part
of the intellectual migration proper, like Alfred Hitchcock, Aldous Huxley, Christopher
Isherwood, Charles Laughton, and Elsa Lanchester.
Other gems in this book are the statement that Los Angeles became in the 1930s and 40s,
arguably, the cultural capital of America for a time, many especially New Yorkers-
considered the place a cultureless hick town (many of course still do). (pg. 125). The
book obviously centers around Hollywood and Los Angeles.
Another gem on pag. 135 states our culture has changed so much since 1939 that it is
difficult to even imagine
On pg. 169 while discussing the architects Neutra and Schindler, the author mentions The
new city that Schindler said was being built in Los Angeles was a product of a building
boom that would last until World War II and has rarely been equaled since.

Alfons Sollner, Exilforschung as Mirror of the Changing Political Culture in Post-War

Germany, Journal of the Interdisciplinary Crossroads, vol. 3, No. 1 (April 2006): 63-74.

The ambiguity of Exilforschung as both, object and subject of the cultural and political
development. Sollner says that Exilforschung as a professional historiography is open to
this ambiguity in the sense that it designates not only what migr thought argued or
published on their country of origin, but also the research on emigration. The article
deals with only West Germany and the migr social and political scientists,
distinguishing 4 stages: (1) The Adenauer Era during the 50s and 60s; also called the
years of silence; (2) Period of Politization during the late 60s and the 70s; the
Wirtschaftswunder initiated by the student movement in 1967/68; (3) The
professionalization of Research during the 80s; highlighting specialization, theories and
methods, and own form of organization; (4) Years since reunification [1989 on]

Carlos Blanco Aguinaga, On the Specificity of the Spanish Exile of 1939, Journal of the
Interdisciplinary Crossroads, vol.3, No.1 (April 2006):33-43.
[CBA finds that the main characteristic of the Spanish exile of 1939, the specificity of
it is that the exiles left Spain together and were seen in Mexico as a collective.
According to CBA those of the Germans between 1933 and 1942 and of the Spaniards in 1939
were the two most clearly political and massive exiles of the century. The exile was not
for the Spanish intellectuals an individual (and/or elitist) problem. The German exile
like the Spanish one, is clearly political, massive and takes with it writers like Mann
or Brecht, composers like Weill, actors like Lorre, philosophers like Arendt and Marcuse,
etc.; but neither these intellectuals nor the rest of the German exiles left their country
simultaneously, whereas in the Spanish case, with minor exceptions, all of the exiles left
together because they had been together in a sgtruggle and a defeat clearly delimited in
time: from July 18, 1936 to February-March, 1936.

hardship of forced displacement. The book encourages the reader to revise dominant & one-

Introduction, pg. XIII, The refugees escape around de world defies traditional
plotlines. Unlike other histories that start and end at conventionally established dates,
this history has many starting points, even more end dates, and actors scattered across
the globe. Realizing that the so-called grand narrative could not encompass the story we
sought to tell, we devised a grid to capture pivotal moments and core issues. Focusing on
four turning points in a repeat pattern of people, places, papers, and problems allowed us
to zero in on individual agency, geographic reach, government and philanthropic
organization policy, and the difficulties quotidian to existential- refugees faced. It
allowed us to move from broad vision to narrow opportunities; from petty application of
the law to daring defiance of it. It is at once a grand story and a tale of details. If
our new narrative form is fractured, so too were the lives of those we study.

One becomes younger when one leads a new life (264)

Exile was a crucible in which people might develop their full potential (431)
Reveling in the tremendous stimulus brought on by emigration (274)
Unless one happens to be an Einstein, on is deprived of all ones marks of rank and left

only with the opportunity to regain them under completely changed circumstances (274)
It was an emigration psychosis. The complete readjustment demanded by emigrant life
requires a parallel readjustment of all ones habitual notions (267)
