Julius Carlebach

Professor Julius CarlebachProfessor Julius Carlebach, who died on 17 April at the age of 78, taught sociology and Jewish studies at Sussex from 1968 to 1989, when he was appointed Rektor of the Hochschule für Jüdische Studien, an affiliated institution of the University of Heidelberg.

His pre-eminent role in the revival of Jewish studies in Germany was recognised by the award of the Grand Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany in 1994 and the Distinguished Service Medal of Baden-Württemberg on his final retirement in 1998.

After his retirement, Julius produced a series of important books and articles in the field of German-Jewish Studies. As a member of the Advisory Board both of the Leo Baeck Institute in London and of the University's Centre for German-Jewish Studies, he also helped to raise the profile of the ongoing work at Sussex.

"I'm amazed by the range of things he did in his career," said Professor Edward Timms.

In 1999, the University recognised his achievements by conferring on him the title of Emeritus Professor of German-Jewish Studies.
