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.

As in Michigan, most large generators in North Carolina have capacity to store their own waste or have built new storage facilities. One of the large generators, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, stores shortlived waste for decay, but ships long-lived waste to GTS Duratek (formerly Scientific Ecology Group-SEG) for volume reduction through incineration. However, because North Carolina did not have access to Barnwell, the ashes were sent back to North Carolina for storage until access to a disposal facility was regained.

CHALLENGES TO THE BIOMEDICAL INVESTIGATOR 20 Using those assumptions, the total annual cost of radioactive-waste management at this institution would be $242,000, of which $62,000, or 26% would be for disposal itself. The University of Iowa produces about 20,000 kg (44,000 lb) of radioactive waste per year. 50/lb. Depending on the density of packing, that could be between $275/ft3 (at 50 lb/ft3) and $550/ft3 (at 100 lb/ft3). Because most of our assumptions are conservative, those estimates are probably a lower bound of the actual costs attributable to radioactive-waste management.

The committee has concluded that the central issue in biomedical research LLRW management is cost.
