This paper considers the case of women refugee doctors, using a detailed sample from Hamburg. Gender is established as a major issue in the persecution of Jewish doctors under National Socialism and emigration. A case study of Hamburg allows both a qualitative and quantitative approach. Finally, lives after emigration are assessed. The paper examines the picture of the female refugee doctors drawn in gender history with the tools of collective biographical research. Some changes to the results of previous studies concerning emigration patterns and their biographies as refugee doctors are suggested.
