Otto Hahn und die Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft im Zerrspiegel neuerer Kritik

  • In recent publications Otto Hahn, last president of the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft, is charged with having favoured the Nazi regime, before World War II by politically purging institutes and suppressing Lise Meitner’s contribution to the discovery of nuclear fission, and during the war by contributing to the German war efforts, mainly to the development of nuclear weapons. These charges, however, which partly concern also the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft and some of their institutes are based on ignorance or disregard of the historical sources.
