In 1933, Jews and, to a lesser extent, political opponents of the Nazis, suffered an unprecedented loss of positions and livelihood at Germany's universities. With few exceptions, the academic elite welcomed and justified the acts of the Nazi regime, uttered no word of protest when their Jewish and liberal colleagues were dismissed, and did not stir when Jewish students were barred admission.

The subject of how German scholars responded to the Nazi regime continues to be a fascinating area of scholarship. In this collection, Rabinbach and Bialas bring some of the best scholarly contributions together in one cohesive volume, to deliver a shocking conclusion: whatever diverse motives German intellectuals may have had in 1933, the image of Nazism as an alien power imposed on German universities from without was a convenient fiction.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is a highly valuable contribution to our understanding of the links between purportedly humanistic scholarship and brutalized politics.'

-- Professor Steven E. Aschheim - Vigevani Chair of European Studies, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

'This impressive and extraordinarily thoughtful anthology should be required reading for anyone worried about the ethical responsibilities of intellectuals in times of political crisis.'
