The Prussian Academy of Sciences during the Third Reich
Notzoldt, Peter; Walther, Peter Th.
Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, v42 n4 p421-444 Dec 2004
In 1933, the Prussian Academy of Sciences and Humanities was an exclusive learned society, out of touch with modern methods and funding, which had also failed to re-establish itself as a "centre of research". During the Nazi regime, it was at best peripherally involved in the restructuring of German academia. While some of its members played a political role, the Academy itself retained its status as a learned society, even an academic club. This helped make possible its subsequent adaptation to the new political order in post-war Germany.
