Activist, Political, Historian
The life of Ernst Engelberg, historian and anti-Nazi activist, spanned over a century. Born in Imperial Germany, he witnessed World War I, became a political activist during the Weimar Republic, was a refugee during Nazism, and became a leading historian in Communist East Germany, He survived the collapsed of the DDR and he lived for two more decades in the Federal Republic of Germany. Engelberg's itinerary is, therefore, not typical for a professor of history in twentieth-century Germany.
