The Juedische Rundschau reports that 996 teachers and professors who have left Germany since the Nazi accession to power and whose present whereabouts is known are scattered in 46 nations, with 239 of them settled in the United States.

The study, prepared by Ernst Karn, shows 270 in England, 64 in France, 64 in Turkey, 52 in Palestine, 46 in Switzerland, 38 in the Netherlands, 13 in Russia and others in various other countries. Not all are Jews by race and only a few Jews by religion.

In the United States, there are emigre scholars in 26 states, the report says, including 68 in New York, 20 in California, 16 in Pennsylvania, 21 at Harvard University and 12 at Yale.
