Prof. Rainer Hering – Antisemitism and the Judiciary in the Federal Republic of Germany

For a long time the German judiciary has been associated with conservative politics in the same way as the issue of ´law and order´ has been connected with conservative and right-wing political groups. While a full-grown right-wing bias has been proven for German justice during the Weimar Republic (1919-1933), some work has yet to be done on the judiciary in the Federal Republic of Germany after 1949. It is a well-known fact that most members of the judiciary did not suffer a break in their careers after 1945 but continued in the same positions as before.
This lecture is mainly concerned with the situation in the late 1950s, especially with a judicial decision that led to major changes in the legal requirements.Prof. Hering studied history, protestant theology, and education. From 1987 to 2006 he worked as an archivist at the State Archives of Hamburg. Since 2006 he is director of the State Archives in Schleswig-Holstein (Germany). He teaches Modern History and Archival Sciences at the Universities of Hamburg and Kiel. His main research fields are Modern German History, Church History, Archival Sciences, and the History of Antisemitism. He has published extensively in all of these fields.
