The expulsion of scientists and scholars as a result of the policy of the Nazi regime was a trenchant break with profound consequences, one of the darkest moments in European intellectual history. This course will examine multiple biographies from a comparative perspective, aiming at a comprehensive social profile of that group. We will also try to assess the consequences of forced migration for scholarly fields in various countries while considering recent trends in the historiography on exile and emigration.
