Quantitative History Webinar Series – The Fate of Skilled Jews in Nazi Germany [Sascha O. Becker, Monash University]
The Nazi period is a transformational period in German history. When Hitler took power in 1933, Jews were expelled from public sector jobs. Using detailed biographical information for Jewish academics, Sascha O. Becker and his team examine several important margins: first, the impact of expulsion and persecution on the extensive margin (who emigrated and who ended up staying behind); second, the timing of emigration and the destination of emigration. In this Quantitative History Webinar, Sascha will present their preliminary findings which show that academic networks played an important role.
This webinar will not be recorded as it contains interim/preliminary findings. Please register and download the Zoom app well in advance to avoid disappointment.
