  • Magnus Hirschfeld’s Meanings: Analysing Biography and the Politics
           of Representation
    • Authors: Leng K.
      Abstract: In view of his continuing political and cultural currency in Germany and beyond, this article endeavours to understand the widespread and singular interest in sexologist and sex reformer Magnus Hirschfeld (1868–1935) as a historical figure. To this end, it analyses four book-length biographies, two in English and two in German, written between the mid-1980s and the early 2010s. By highlighting repeated themes, claims and assertions, the article demonstrates how the dominant representation of Magnus Hirschfeld that emerges across all of his biographies is that of a tireless humanitarian doctor who dedicated his life to fulfilling the spirit of the Scientific Humanitarian Committee’s motto: Per scientiam ad justitiam, ‘Through Science to Justice’. Based on this framing, his biographers mobilize Hirschfeld’s legacy to defend the Enlightenment tradition and champion a liberal approach to sexual politics. This article considers the consequences of these representational choices by examining how biographers suppress or mitigate the more troubling aspects of Hirschfeld’s life in order to sustain a narrative that can bear the weight of these political investments. By way of conclusion, it explores the narrative and analytical possibilities afforded by a more ambivalent reading of Hirschfeld’s life and legacy, and maintains that a less certain and less heroic view of Hirschfeld may ultimately provide more insight into both the past and the present.

  • Taming Nuclear Power: The Accident near Harrisburg and the Change in West
           German and International Nuclear Policy in the 1970s and early 1980s
    • Authors: Bösch F.
      Abstract: In 2011 a broad majority in the German Federal Parliament voted to abandon nuclear energy. This article explores the origins of the change in attitude towards nuclear energy and argues that seven years before the Chernobyl disaster, the accident at the U.S. power plant Three Mile Island near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in 1979, had a profound impact which nowadays seems to be largely forgotten in Europe. The article identifies the structural causes underlying the transnational reception of the Three Mile Island accident and explores international reactions, particularly in the Federal Republic of Germany. The accident near Harrisburg led to a loss of public confidence and created unease about nuclear expansion in many industrialized nations. Reactions to the accident can be understood as an attempt to tame nuclear energy both technically, by increasing safety measures and abandoning plans for new nuclear power stations, and politically, with a more critical appraisal of nuclear energy and with semantics that encouraged a long-term withdrawal from nuclear power. Critics were now also accepted as experts. Nuclear policy in all countries became closely dependent on public opinion, indicating a high level of political responsiveness. Various factors, however, including the contemporaneous oil crisis put the brakes on this critical approach to nuclear power, while safety improvements and the limited expansion of nuclear power created new confidence in the early 1980s.

  • The Town Chronicle of Johannes Hass: History Writing and Divine
           Intervention in the Early Sixteenth Century *
    • Authors: Christ M.
      Abstract: The council annals of Johannes Hass, the last Catholic mayor of the West Bohemian town of Görlitz, are a fascinating document. In a single source we can see the author’s changing interpretation of divine intervention between c.1509 and 1542. After the introduction of the Reformation, Hass steadily decreased the importance of God, whilst the Devil became increasingly important. Regardless of Hass’s staunch Catholicism, Martin Luther’s impact can be felt in his vision of the divine and the demonic as he subconsciously incorporated minor elements of Lutheranism and commented positively on small changes brought about by the Reformation. Hass shows how receptive Catholics were towards Lutheran theology, without necessarily acknowledging it, as long as the new religion did not challenge the urban order. In rich and colourful language, Hass changed the very nature of God, the Devil and the saints. In this way he was responding to the slow but steady introduction of the Reformation in Görlitz. Only by gradually turning God into a passive observer and giving greater agency to human actors could Hass make sense of the absence of a clear sign in favour of the Catholics in Görlitz.

  • Selling Scientific Authority: Radium Spas, Advertising and Popular
           Understandings of Radioactivity in Germany, 1900–1937 *
    • Authors: Murdock CE.
      Abstract: Radioactive therapies from spa water to chocolate won wide popularity in early twentieth-century Europe, connecting interest in modern science, concern about health and desire for a life that was both ‘natural’ and rational. Europeans learned to consider radioactivity a modern health aid from a variety of public experts, from scientists and physicians to government officials, advertisers and spas. German radium spas engaged in public debates about the therapeutic versus dangerous properties of radioactivity, helping to sell the German and European publics on the idea that radioactivity promised health and vitality. They connected scientific discovery, new ideas about healing and an emerging social-welfare state to modern consumer culture, offering a vivid illustration of how public understandings of science and health were constructed in a rapidly modernizing European society. Radium spas were nimble modern actors—adjusting to changing scientific information, state regulation, commercial markets, mass media and popular opinion. When radioactivity was hailed as a cure-all in the 1910s and 1920s, they celebrated ‘radium water’ as the modern answer to public and individual health. But in the 1930s, when evidence emerged that radioactivity might be dangerous, and competition for consumers was fierce, they emphasized their medical expertise in providing safe ‘radium cures’. As a case study, German radium spas provide insight into the evolution of popular perceptions about what radioactivity was and why it mattered, as well as into how diverse actors shape modern popular understandings of health more broadly.

  • ‘Lobby for the Nazi Elite’? The Protestant Churches and Civilian
           Internment in the British Zone of Occupied Germany, 1945–1948
    • Authors: Beattie AH.
      Abstract: Using a case study of the Protestant churches in the British zone in occupied Germany after the Second World War, the article explores church responses to an often-neglected aspect of the Allies’ purge of post-Nazi Germany: their mass internment of German civilians. Whereas the literature is critical of church support for former Nazis and opposition to Allied measures, the article argues for differentiation. Church assistance for internees was even more extensive than previously recognized and erred on the side of assisting undeserving former Nazis, while also being somewhat selective and discerning. Much church activity was in opposition to the British, yet there was also a degree of cooperation and negotiation. The article argues that ecclesiastical criticism of civilian internment was not merely a symptom of a refusal to confront the past or an expression of nationalist ideology. Internment was a genuine object of criticism in its own right and a source of wider church objections to denazification. Ultimately, Allied internment policy, pressure from below, interconfessional rivalry, national solidarity and the lack of a German government all contributed to the Protestant churches becoming outspoken critics of the Allies and advocates for those members of the German people who found themselves in civilian internment camps.
