Invitation to a panel discussion on January 17, 2024 in the Jüdisches Museum, Munich

As one of the first German historical research institutions, the Monumenta Germaniae Historica (MGH) have turned to examine the fate of the scholars of Jewish origin who worked for them in their 200 year history, unmasking the pious legend of unpolitical medieval studies under Nazi rule.

The life stories of the Jewish scholars at the MGH in the anthology „Zwischen Vaterlandsliebe und Ausgrenzung“, published in autumn 2023, are tales of personal tragedy, but also of success. The anti-Semitic mechanisms in academic circles remain to be fully investigated. In cooperation with the Jüdisches Museum of Munich the MGH present a public panel discussion on this topic on January 17 2024.

Our panel guests are:
• Magnus Brechtken, deputy director of the Institut für Zeitgeschichte München (IfZ)
• Kristina Milz, press aide, IfZ
• Stefan L. Wolff, Forschungsinstitut für Technik- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte / Deutsches Museum
• Martina Hartmann, president of the MGH
