Happy to share notes from another fantastic article from the Jewish Voice From Germany - “Live and prosper”:

European approaches with distinctly American modes. In the United States, emigre scholars and artists were once again outsiders. They had German accents and upbringings. They were new immigrants in a new land. They were often uncomfortable in their new settings, and they sometimes encountered prejudice or bias in America as well. Nevertheless, they managed to become active participants in American cultural and intellectual life. Their insider/outsider status helped to fuel their creativity and achievements, often blending European approaches and new American priorities.
