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.

Activated in severe hypoxia or ischemia. Rather, these neuronal mechanisms for gasping are incorporated into and function as part of the brainstem neuronal circuit generating eupnea. Severe hypoxia or ischemia suppresses components of this brainstem neuronal circuit and=or activates mechanisms for gasping. The mechanism of this activation and the relatively greater efficiency of ‘‘autoresuscitation’’ in the neonate than in the adult are also topics for consideration. II. Elicitation of Gasping A systematic comparison of gasping with normal eupneic ventilation was first performed by Thomas Lumsden in a series of papers in 1923 and 1924 (6–9).

Both variables likewise increase upon exposure to hypoxia. This response is dependent upon the peripheral chemoreceptors. Following sectioning of the carotid sinus nerves and vagi, hypoxia causes a fall in eupneic ventilatory activity in decerebrate or anesthetized preparations (5,21). In gasping, following transection of the brainstem at the pontomedullary junction, neither the peak height of phrenic activity nor the frequency of gasping is systematically altered in hypercapnia. In these preparations, hypoxia does cause a transient increase in the frequency, but not the height, of gasps.

C. The Efferent System There is a multitude of neuromuscular and skeletal changes that take place early in life. These include alterations in muscle cells, the neuromuscular junction, the nerve terminals and synapses, and the chest wall properties. Therefore, since muscle and chest wall properties change with age, it is likely that neural responses can be influenced by pump properties, especially that these muscles execute neural commands. One of the important maturational aspects of respiratory muscles is their pattern of innervation.
