Preamble

Following the advent of the National Socialist regime in the year 1938, more than 2,700 mostly Jewish affiliates of the University of Vienna were dismissed and subsequently driven away and/or murdered - lecturers, students and administration employees. Furthermore, over 200 people were stripped of their academic titles.

  • Category: expelled student

Hans LÖW-BEER, born on August 19th, 1907 in Vienna, son of Ernst Löw-Beer (general manager of bank Merkur, retired, born 1879), and of Hermine Barbara, née Wagerer, lived in Viennas' 12th district, Arndtstrasse 89. His parents had married in 1906 at the temple Seitenstettengasse in Vienna, but his father resigned from the Jewish Community in 1920.

Hans Löw-Beer was enrolled finally in the fall term 1937/38 at the Medical School in the 5th and last year of his studies. Although roman-catholic, he was discriminated as a so called "Mischling 1. Grades" and could not continue with his studies and was forced to leave the university.

His younger sister Hermine Löw-Beer and her later husband Johannes Frischauf could continue with their medical studies with restrictions although dicriminated as "Mischling 1. Grades" and could finally finish their studies at the University of Vienna in times of National-Socialism.

His parents survived National-Socialism and changed their names in October 1945 from "Löw-Beer" to "Krammer" – it is not clear, whether this also the case for Hans Löw-Beer.
