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.

In the Commons he emphasized another line of argument: Britain and the United States could never be friends, “for this simple reason…we were rivals…politically and…commercially…We aspired to the same position…to the 25 LORD SALISBURY government of the seas…We were both manufacturing peoples”. An irresistible logic dictated their antagonism everywhere. Conversely, the Confederacy was Britain’s natural ally; the two economies were complementary, exchanging manufactures for the raw material on which Lancashire’s mills depended.

Peace is… paramount”, Cecil recognized. He saw, too, that no government could last long—longer than three months, he said—if public opinion was hostile. 26 Cecil’s criticisms of Palmerstonian foreign policy obscured the extent of his agreement with it, even then. He credited the government with “the best intentions” in Italy at the decisive stage of the Risorgimento in 1859–60, but observed that neither geography nor trade really warranted the British interest in Italy’s future. Speaking against the background of the invasion scare at that date, he applauded the premier’s determination to enjoy good relations with France from a position of strength.

He solemnly warned the House against “sentimental assertions of the good qualities of the working class. The greater their good qualities, the greater the danger”. The country gentlemen behind him thought it “a magnificent speech”. Cecil made a more serious contribution to the debates. He concentrated on the composition of a future electorate and the absolute necessity of balancing social classes within it, including the working-class voters whose numbers were rising with industrial prosperity.
