Hans Eichner belongs to that group of Jewish intellectuals who fled Nazi Germany or Austria in the 1930s and who subsequently exerted a formative influence on German Studies in the English-speaking world. Eichner made a new home in Canada, where he taught first at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, and then for many years at the University of Toronto. He was known mainly for his work on Thomas Mann, on German Romanticism, and as a co-editor of the historical-critical edition of Friedrich Schlegel's collected works. The essays in this volume by Hans Eichner's colleagues, friends, and students deal with Romanticism, Humanism and Judaism, subjects which occupied Eichner throughout his long scholarly career. Contributors also pay homage to his importance as scholar, as teacher, and as the author of an autobiographical novel about the fate of Hungarian-Austrian Jews, written late in his life. The essays illuminate the work of a Jewish scholar who was always conscious of the paradox of dedicating his life to German literature, after and despite the Holocaust.
Hans Eichner gehoert zu den judischen Intellektuellen, die in den dreissiger Jahren aus dem Nationalsozialistischen Deutschland oder aus OEsterreich flohen und in der zweiten Halfte des 20. Jahrhunderts eine pragende Rolle in der Auslandsgermanistik spielten. Eichner fand in Kanada seine neue Heimat, wo er zuerst an der Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, und dann viele Jahre an der Universitat Toronto lehrte. Er wurde vor allem bekannt durch seine Arbeiten uber Thomas Mann, die deutsche Romantik und als Mitherausgeber der historisch-kritischen Friedrich-Schlegel-Ausgabe. Die Aufsatze in diesem Band, verfasst von Kollegen, Freunden und Schulern Hans Eichners, nehmen die Themen Romantik, Humanismus und Judentum auf, mit denen sich Hans Eichner wahrend seiner langen wissenschaftlichen Laufbahn auseinandersetzte. Andere Beitrage wurdigen seine Bedeutung als Wissenschaftler, Lehrer und als Autor eines autobiographischen Romans uber das Schicksal der
ungarisch-oesterreichischen Juden, den er spat in seinem Leben schrieb. Die Aufsatze zeichnen das Bild eines judischen Wissenschaftlers, der sich immer des Paradoxons bewusst war, trotz des Holocausts seine Lebensarbeit der deutschen Literatur zu widmen.
