This course provides an exploration of German scholars and intellectuals who fled Nazi Germany and found refuge in either the United States or in American Services in Great Britain and post-WWII Germany. Most sided with the Left and were of Jewish extraction. We will explore how those people learned to bridge different cultures on two different continents, within the context of both World War II and the Cold War.
