Mit dem Tod des nach Amerika emigrierten Romanisten Ernst Levy im September 1968 fand eine Epoche der Heidelberger Fakultatsgeschichte ihren definitiven Beschluss, die zu den grossartigsten ihrer langen Geschichte zahlt. Wesentlich beigetragen haben zu dem bis heute bestehenden internationalen Renommee der Heidelberger Juristischen Fakultat insbesondere Rechtslehrer judischer Herkunft. Ein aussergewohnlich offenes, liberales geistiges Klima zeichnete die Ruperto Carola von der zweiten Halfte des 19. Jahrhunderts bis zum Beginn der Hitlerei aus. Gefordert wurde die Bereitschaft der Fakultat, Gelehrte judischer Herkunft zu berufen, auch durch die Karlsruher Regierung. Klaus-Peter Schroeder erganzt mit dieser Studie die bereits 2011 vorgelegte Geschichte der Heidelberger Juristischen Fakultat im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert um eine vertiefende Darstellung der herausragenden Leistungen, welche die Rechtsgelehrten judischer Abstammung fur die Ruperto Carola erbracht haben, wachst doch zusehends die Gefahr, dass sie nach mehr als siebzig Jahren seit Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs in Vergessenheit geraten.
