(p.149) 15 Side-Lining Of Emigrés And Critics
The Mental Aftermath


Oxford University Press

After the war, expelled compatriots and critics were not welcomed back with open arms. This common attitude was based on a distortedly rosy image of life abroad and on vestiges of Nazi propaganda against ‘defectors’. Sufferings closer to home were preoccupying enough without adding the plight of the dismissed Jews. The vocabulary used in replies to emigré physicists tended to minimize their situation and discourage further inquiry; side-lining, peer pressure, and ostracization (esprit de corps) did the rest to assure remigration.

Keywords:   dismissed Jews, ostracization, side-lining, remigration, esprit de corps
