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.

Cardiopulmonary bypass and other blood rewarming techniques such as hemodialysis are indicated for severe and moderate hypothermia with an unstable cardiac rhythm. Complex Humanitarian Emergencies 69 upper arm circumference (MUAC) of children 65–110 cm tall (a proxy for 6–59 months of age). 5 cm). THE EPIDEMIOLOGY OF WAR AND CONFLICT In conventional wars and complex emergencies, humanitarian response must first focus on restoring public health.

HYPOTHERMIA Hypothermia is defined as a core temperature of less than 35°C (95°F). While hypothermia can affect virtually any organ system in the body, the most prominent effects are on the neurologic and cardiovascular systems. Further classification of severity is also based on core temperature: 64 Biological Disaster Management • Mild: 32–35°C • Moderate: 29–31°C • Severe: 26–28°C ETIOLOGY Virtually any disaster situation can produce conditions that result in hypothermia. While primary hypothermia may result from prolonged exposure to a cold environment, the loss of normal regulatory functions may cause secondary hypothermia.

While such weapons have been used in major wars, regional conflicts, and terrorism, this chapter will focus on the latter. WMDs all have the potential to create mass casualties, public panic, and enormous property destruction. They represent an existing and growing security and safety risk for all the citizens of the world. Terrorists now have an improved ability to collect information, raise money, and disseminate rhetoric. Advanced information technology available through the Internet allows extremists to communicate widely and efficiently.
