Summary 
"Contrary to popular belief  and despite the expulsion, emigration, or death of many German mathematicians  substantial mathematics was produced in Germany during 19331945. In this social history of the mathematics community in Nazi Germany, Sanford Segal examines how the Nazi years affected the personal and academic lives of those German mathematicians who continued to work in Germany."Cover
