Research Group »Displaced Heritage: German-Jewish Migration and Cultural Transfer in the 20th Century«

DEADLINE EXTENDED: 14. Februar 2024

We invite applications from scholars to join an international research group. German-Jewish history, before and after the Second World War, was marked by an intense mobility. This includes Jewish immigration to Weimar Germany following WWI, large-scale flight from the Reich during the 1930s and the post-war emigration of Holocaust survivors. These movements of people had a huge impact on the life of German Jews and have attracted increased scholarly attention within the last decades. Today, a well-developed body of research discusses political, social, cultural, religious, and economic aspects of German-Jewish migration.
