Abstract

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the University of Hamburg's main building, a ceremony was held on May 13th, 2011. The keynote speaker was Heinz-Elmar Tenorth, Professor of Historical Education in Berlin. Heinz Rieter and Rainer Nicolaysen awarded two lecture hall names, the socio-economic economist Eduard Heimann (1889-1967)(Lecture Hall H) and the lawyer Albrecht Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1874-1936) (Lecture Hall K). Thus, the programme for naming the seven lecture halls of the University's main building after outstanding scientists who were expelled from the Nazi regime came to an end.Detailed information on all names of the lecture hall can be found in the anthology The main building of the University of Hamburg as a place of remembrance, which was published on the occasion of the anniversary.

Abstract

Alfred Beit (1853-1906) has been called a financial genius. When he went to South Africa in 1875, no one could imagine that the son of converted Hamburg Jews would soon become one of the richest men of his time - thanks to the diamonds of Kimberley and the gold of the Witwatersrand.As a co-founder of De Beers Ltd. and close friend of Cecil Rhodes, the charismatic promoter of British imperialism in southern Africa, Alfred Beit became one of the colonial fathers of Rhodesia. A British subject from 1898, he tried to mediate politically in the conflicts that developed between Germany and Britain with their respective empires, but failed to achieve a reconciliation between the two powers.Alfred Beit was himself a very prominent art collector and throughout his career he generously supported countless nonprofit-making institutions. TheHamburg Scientific Foundation itself owes its founding to one of his major donations. Beit's will passed on his wealth to a trust, which has financed development aid projects since 1906.This is the first comprehensive biography of this outstanding businessman, art collector and internationally active philanthropist.

Abstract

Henry P. Newman loved fine arts: In the house of the Hamburg grain wholesaler who introduced revolutionary unloading techniques on his company quay, painters and poets were frequent guests. For many years the merchant banker assembled an extraordinary collection of exquisite paintings. Among them were works by French and German impressionists. When World War I broke out, Henry P. Newman donated the hospital train C1 and accompanied it to Bulgaria in the winter of 1915/16. Although being an educated art lover, Newman was also committed to science. He was a member of the first board of trustees of the Hamburg Scientific Foundation. This biography traces the life of this man, who - contrary to the prevailing self-conception of the Hanseatic merchant team - devoted himself to his profession with dedication and expert knowledge of art.

Abstract

The autonomy of sport which is constitutionally recognised is not consistently respected by EU law. There are complaints that the necessary cooperation of the federations in sport is not sufficiently taken into account. This is where the speakers of the 9th International Hamburg Symposium "Sport and Economics" come in when they address legal and economic questions about major sporting events and discuss proposals on the status of sport in the European context. It shows that sport is economically shaped, which has not yet found an adequate equivalent at European level. This is evident, for example, in sports betting and the gambling monopoly.The volume will further stimulate the debate created by the EU White Paper on Sport and the Bundestag resolution on sport in Europe.

Abstract

Sport - in particular high-performance sport - is a fascination that is used as a platform for societal concerns. This is the base for different interests in active and passive sports and the state's interest in top-class sport. In most countries, top-class sport is a national concern: states train their athletes in national training centres, support their sports associations in international competitions or promote applications for major sporting events.The articles in this volume provide a well-founded insight into the organisation of high-performance sport and show the different paths of selected countries.

Abstract

In the context of Turkey's accession to the EU, the issue of potential migration from Turkey and its impact upon European labor markets became one of the concerns of the EU, considering Turkey's growing population and young labor force. In 2011, half a century after the bi-lateral agreement between Turkey and Germany on labor recruitment in 1961, migration plays a key role in relations of Turkey with the EU and will even increase its significance - not necessarily for the next fifty years but certainly for the next decade. This book touches upon various aspects of the ongoing debate about the effects of Turkey's accession to the EU upon the migration flows and sheds light on various dimensions of current panorama, addresses policy implications as well as future challenges and opportunities.

Abstract

After the end of the Schleswig-Holstein uprising, the European powers restored the Danish state to which the dukedoms of Schleswig, Holstein and Lauenburg belonged in 1851/1852. Denmark declared its decision not to join the Duchy of Schleswig.In 1863, however, the Danish government drafted a new constitution, which resulted in a link between the Duchy of Schleswig and Denmark and a separation from the Duchy of Holstein. The German Confederation (Deutscher Bund) considered this constitution to be a violation of the international agreements. When the new Danish king Christian IX (ruled 1863-1906) signed the constitution in the same year, Holstein and Lauenburg were occupied by federal contingents after Danish troops moved out. Until the establishment of the Prussian government in Schleswig in 1868, both parts of the country were administered by Prussian and Austrian transitional authorities.The provisional nature of these administrations and their authorities which usually operate for only a few months is also reflected in the complex inventory formation. In 2007, the holdings of the Prussian and Austrian administrations were reclassified. The processing also gave rise to an inventory adjustment. The signatures of the individual departments have been retained; only those with the addition of letters received a new number, which is also recorded in a concordance.A common register of places, subjects and persons for all collections forms the conclusion of this find book. To search for a topic or a term, the subject should first be classified according to subject and then added to the index.

Abstract

The Augustenburg Duke's lineage (house) rose in the 17th century as a side line of the Princely House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg. It expired in 1931 in male line. Dept. (Abt.) 22 comprises the Ducal-Augustenburg House Archives (Primkenauer Archive) and the archives of the family branch of the Ducal house residing in Gut Noer. The period of existence extends from the 17th to the 20th century, with a focus on the 19th century. Particularly noteworthy is the extraordinarily important archive material from the period of Schleswig-Holstein's political history, especially concerning foreign and military affairs. In addition, Abbot 22 also contains the archives of the Ducal Government of Schleswig-Holstein (1863-1866). A common register of places, subjects and persons completes this book.
