From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Max Freiherr von Waldberg (1858—1938) was a professor of modern literature at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. After World War I, one of his pupils was future Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels. Nevertheless, because of his Jewish ancestry, von Waldberg was one of several Heidelberg professors forced to retire in April 1933, when the Third Reich passed a civil service law to remove university faculty members of "non-Aryan" descent.[1]
