Overview

A Past Renewed documents the generation of German-speaking refugee historians who settled in the United States after fleeing Hitler's Europe. Bio-bibliographical entries on eighty-eight of these refugees chronicle their scholarly contributions, historical interests, and impact on the American historical profession after 1945. Besides material on noted historians of modern Europe such as Felix Gilbert, Hajo Holborn, and Hans Rosenberg, the catalog includes information on other historians influential in the fields of Jewish history, Renaissance history, Roman and Canon Law history, Chinese history, and medical history. A Past Renewed is a valuable reference work for scholars interested in the academic emigration from Nazi Germany, historiographical developments in the United States in the postwar era, the collective contributions of refugee historians to the American historical profession, and the lives and works of individual refugee historians. A Past Renewed is, above all, a tribute to those refugee historians who overcame the difficult circumstances of their emigration and forged new lives in the United States. They not only established themselves as successful college and university professors, but also greatly contributed to the study of German and European history in the United States. They were the interpreters and representatives of German culture in their new country and inspired generations of American students to better understand the developments, achievements, and tragedies of German and modern European history.
