Flüchten oder Bleiben? Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe und Ressourcen von Emigranten im Nationalsozialismus

Sylke Bartmann zeigt anhand der Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe von Emigranten unterschiedliche Umgehensweisen mit dem Nationalsozialismus und damit verbundene Repressalien und Bedrohungen auf. Der Fokus richtet sich dabei auf den Einzelnen als Akteur und Gestalter seines eigenen Lebens. Es wird die Frage beantwortet, inwieweit in den Prozessen der Biographisierung Ressourcen zum Ausdruck kommen, die das Leben im Nationalsozialismus (weiterhin) als zusammenhängend und sinnvoll erscheinen lassen - auch wenn dem einzelnen Menschen die Welt manchmal sinnentleert gegenüberzustehen scheint.

When an Egyptian mummy was obtained by Leipzig, Germany, in 1693, it soon became a tourist attraction owing to the common belief “that it pierceth all parts, restores wasted limbs, consumption, heckticks, and cures all ulcers and corruption” (Wittlin, 1949). Until the middle of the eighteenth century, Europe had no museum collections in the modern sense. Instead, there were vast collections held by monarchs and the Catholic Church that functioned as reliquaries, storehouses, and treasuries. During the Enlightenment, a strong belief in the power of empirical investigations of the natural world as a method for the discovery of God’s laws brought with it a need for museums whose purpose was the preservation of historical artifacts and natural objects for scientific scrutiny.

Thus, they have both enriched our science and advanced our field. REFERENCES Aufderheide A. 2003. The Scientific Study of Mummies. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
