Study draws ambivalent conclusion about Ernst Jung – foundation faces up to responsibility and and initiates comprehensive measures
Hamburg, 22 February 2023. The Jung Foundation for Science and Research plans to provide a total of 1,000,000 euros in funding to the Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial and Doctors Without Borders to support research into medical history and help people in need. These funding projects are currently being discussed with the supervisory authority for foundations. The Jung Foundation will also offer an annual fellowship for a thesis at the Institute for History and Ethics of Medicine at the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf. These and further planned measures are adopted in response to the results of a study on Ernst Jung and his companies during the period of National Socialism. The study was initiated by the foundation itself.
