Die vertriebenen Heidelberger Dozenten : zur Geschichte der Ruprecht-Karls-Universität nach 1933

Lists the faculty members of the University of Heidelberg who were dismissed in the 1930s for racial or political reasons, and details the circumstances of the dismissals, which took place in three waves; in 1933, under the civil service law (which exempted former combatants at the front and other categories); in 1935, under the Nuremberg Laws (which cancelled those exemptions); and in 1937, under the new civil service law which extended the dismissals to staff married to non-Aryans. Pp. 119-122 describe a proposal submitted to Nazi ministries by Eugen Täubler, professor of classics and Jewish history at Heidelberg, to promote Jewish emigration, with himself as their agent. Although the proposal was not accepted, the authorities appreciated Täubler's attitude and facilitated his own emigration in 1940. Describes the fate of the other faculty members after their emigration. (From the Bibliography of the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism)
