(p.25) 3 Tensions With The Allies
The Mental Aftermath


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the mental landscape of physicists inside postwar Germany: superficial admiration and opportunistic friendliness among the defeated; covert reserve and distrust concerning denazification in the four zones, denunciations, and official questionnaires; and stubborn resistance to Allied Control through exonerating certificates issued in professional solidarity. Resentment was fueled by the low conviction rates of the tribunals, unequal justice in the four zones, and debilitating research restrictions.

Keywords:   Allied Control, tribunals, denazification, exonerating certificates, research restrictions
