Internisten in Diktatur und junger Demokratie
Die Deutsche Gesellschaft für Innere Medizin 1933–1970.

By Ralf Forsbach and Hans-Georg Hofer 
Edited by Cornel Sieber, Ulrich R. Fölsch, and Maximilian G. Broglie

The DGIM also became part of the system of injustice during the National Socialist era. Many who were persecuted as Jews were forced to leave the DGIM. The elected chairman Leopold Lichtwitz was replaced by the Nazi activist Alfred Schittenhelm in 1933. Individual members resisted the Nazi dictatorship, but without the support of their professional society. 
Based on a wide range of sources, the book traces individual fates as well as the Nazification of the DGIM and its reconstitution after 1945. In the young Federal Republic, it was possible to integrate former National Socialists and those once persecuted at the price of concealing the past. The controversial reform ideas associated with the year 1968, were an indication of a changing awareness.
