Academic Refugees in the 1930s: In and Around the Warburg Circle

22 October 5:30 pm

Warburg Lecture Room, Warburg Institute, University of London

Having accepted the necessity of exile, as they ventured into the unknown refugees had massive practicalities to contend with. This talk draws on archival materials, especially relating to the activities of the Society for the Preservation of Science and Learning (SPSL), to reconstruct procedures and indicate the nature of the help émigrés received from organizations and individuals in Britain and the United States. In 1933 the SPSL had helped the Warburg Library and staff leave Hamburg and transfer to London to become the Warburg Institute, which in turn played a major role in helping academic refugees to find their way.

Professor Elizabeth Sears, University of Michigan
