Studenten im Dritten Reich

Pp. 212-227 describe the drastic reduction in the number of Jewish students at German universities after the Nazi takeover. The cause lay less in the law "against the overcrowding of German schools and universities", which at first allowed many exceptions, than in the withholding of university eligibility (Hochschulreife) certificates by secondary schools. Moreover, university studies became a dead end as most of the professions were gradually closed to Jews. In 1938 Jews were excluded from the universities altogether; from 1940 "Mischlinge" could study only under exceptional circumstances. Cites reminiscences of non-Aryan students who had good as well as painful experiences with their teachers and fellow students.
