TRADITION

Jewish Mathematicians in

German-Speaking Academic Culture

This exhibition presents the life and works of Jewish mathematicians

in Germany. Spanning a period of 150 years, it

documents their emergence from segregation into the academic

limelight, recalls their emigration, flight or death after

1933, and illuminates their lasting legacies.

TRANSCENDING TRADITION highlights the key role of

Jewish mathematicians in German-speaking academic

culture before 1933 – in teaching and academic research,

in professional organizations and throughout mathematical

culture, from academic to popular. A wealth of pictures

and documents trace many moving lives: young researchers

who helped shape modern mathematics and physics,

scholars who went beyond mathematics and made their

mark in literature or philosophy, and the story of the most

important female mathematician of the 20th century. It explores

the places and historical contexts and presents the

actors and their contributions with scholarly precision and

a compassionate eye for individuals and their fates.
