Chapter Summary

This chapter touches only in passing on Friedrich Meinecke's crucial importance to the discipline of history in Germany during the first half of the 20th century. The main focus is on Meinecke as an academic teacher, particularly on his relationship with his students who were Jewish or had "Jewish family ties" and who fled Germany after 1933. The chapter provides an account of their fate and ongoing links with Meinecke, and finally of Meinecke's efforts to persuade them to return to Germany after the Second World War, by examining his students Hans Rothfels, Dietrich Gerhard, Gerhard Masur, Hajo Holborn, Felix Gilbert, Hans Baron, Helene Wieruszowski, Hans Rosenberg, Eckart Kehr and Hans Günther Reissner, along with Meinecke's colleague Gustav Mayer, and Hedwig Hintze, who received her doctorate under Meinecke's supervision but was academically a student of her husband Otto Hintze.
