Nazi ideology had a profound effect on German society beginning in with the election of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany lasting until with the unconditional surrender of Germany to the western Allies and the USSR.

Indeed, there are several areas of interaction between promulgated Nazi attitudes and the life and work of mathematicians.

Thus this book is an attempt at a particu-lar investigation of the relationships between so-called pure (natural) science and the extra-scientiﬁc culture. Prior to Nazi rule, the University of Göttingen already had an illustrious mathematics tradition that included distinguished mathematicians like Gauss, Riemann, David Hilbert, Dirichlet, Hermann Minkowski and Felix Klein.

Abraham Fraenkelhas written that Hilbert was "the most significant mathematician in the world" during those years.
