New beginning

Kasimir Fajans was a Russian chemistry professor of Polish and Jewish origin working in Germany. A top scientist on the cutting edge of radioactive and physical chemistry, he fled after Adolph Hitler became chancellor in 1933. Edward Kraus, LSA dean at U-M, offered Fajans a professorship. He took the job, and worked at U-M until his retirement in 1956.
