This publication is dedicated to the quickly transforming into region of technology facing constitution and houses of organic surfaces of their relation to specific function(s). This quantity, written by means of a crew of experts from diverse disciplines, covers numerous floor services corresponding to security, safeguard, water delivery, anti-wetting, self cleansing, gentle mirrored image and scattering, and acoustics. simply because organic surfaces have a nearly never-ending power of technological rules for the advance of recent fabrics and platforms, inspirations from biology may be attention-grabbing for a huge diversity of issues in floor engineering.

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.
