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.
