Engineer Refugees from Nazism in Britain and their innovations
20 January 2:45 pm
Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication
Sherfield Building Level 3, South Kensington Campus Imperial College
Engineering was done differently in Germany than in the UK. In Germany there was and still is, a certain kudos to being addressed as ‘Herr Diplom Ingenieur’. The International organisations that engineer refugees belonged to helped them integrate into work and life more easily than other professional groups of refugees. They were therefore able to make a real contribution to the war effort with their inventions, just one example the new bonded material supplied by Metalistik that prevented vibrations in planes and trains. And they were forward thinking, bringing much more innovation to British life post-war.
