ab: It is well known that many famous 20th century mathematicians fled from the
Nazi regime. This book is a very extensive presentation of reasons of
the emigration of many notable mathematicians, fleeing from the Nazi
regime, their impact on mathematics and the influence their host
countries had on them. It is based on archival sources and includes
texts of numerous documents, in particular excerpts from many letters
written to and by the mathematicians who emigrated from Germany and
other countries under the Nazi regime. The book is an in-depth study of
the topic and as such a rich source of data for anyone interested not
only in history of mathematics in particular but also for the history
of the WWII time. The book is a greatly expanded translation of the
1998 German edition (Vieweg) reviewed in Zbl 0917.01025 and ME
