The Crisis of Reform Schools

In the late 1920s, a collection of auto-biographical texts by occupants of a children’s home, so called ‘Fürsorgezöglinge’, caused an outrage and fuelled a debate about the future of German reform schools.

The texts have now been republished in a critical edition for the first time, making these unique source available again for Weimar research.
