Zwischen Ausgrenzung und Duldung. Die Geschichte der TH Darmstadt und ihrer jüdischen Studierenden 1933–1950

Melanie Hanel and Isabel Schmidt
From the journal Aschkenas

Abstracht: In their article Melanie Hanel and Isabel Schmidt analyze the situation of the Jewish students at the Technische Hochschule Darmstadt (THD) between 1933 and 1950. Consciously leaving out the political caesura of 1945, the authors focus on two periods that represent different realities: the exclusion of the Jewish students, divided in »Voll-« and »Mischlingsjuden« during National Socialism, and, successively, the acceptance of the Jewish students among DP-students after 1945. Based on the fact that the THD had the possibility to choose between different courses of action – before as well as after 1945 – the main focus is on the active role and motives of the Hochschule.
