Beschreibung

"This book represents a deeply personal, intellectually challenging, and historically important undertaking. I cannot recommend highly enough a book that packs so much learning and passion, tragedy and promise, between two covers." · James Retallack, Professor of History, University of Toronto; Killam Research Fellow 2015-17

"This volume brings together memoirs from key second-generation historians, reminiscences from colleagues and students, and a detailed reference section containing critical biographical and professional information. It is a valuable resource." · Marion Deshmukh, George Mason University

Of the thousands of children and young adults who fled Nazi Germany in the years before the Second World War, a remarkable number went on to become trained historians in their adopted homelands. By placing autobiographical testimonies alongside historical analysis and professional reflections, this richly varied collection comprises the first sustained effort to illuminate the role these men and women played in modern historiography. Focusing particularly on those who settled in North America, Great Britain, and Israel, it culminates in a comprehensive, meticulously researched bio-bibliographical guide that provides a systematic overview of the lives and works of this "second generation."
