Page from publication reviewing book by Lewis A. Coser

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:

Lewis Coser, an esteemed sociologist and a refugee from Nazi Germany, describes the lives of scholars who fled Nazi Germany and Austria in the early years of Hitler’s reign with a focus on their impact, accomplishments in their respective fields of social science and humanities, as well as their experience in their adopted country.

Below is a photograph that accompanied an article in the New York Times in 1933 of some of the German professors at the University in Exile at the New School for Social Research in New York City. The 14 professors were from esteemed German universities in Berlin, Frankfort, Hamburg and other cities. Together they pioneered the Graduate Faculty of Political and Social Science. October 1, 1933.
