Live and act
The son of Erlanger Oberstudiendirektor Council Sigmund von Raumer (1860-1939) and Marie Emilie von Ammon (* 1867), had in 1919 the volunteer corps of Konstantin Hierl connected. After studying history and obtaining a doctorate to become a Dr. phil. In 1924 and his habilitation in 1928 on The Destruction of the Palatinate in 1689 , he was taken on as a private lecturer from 1929 and from 1935 as an adjunct professor at the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg . In the same year he went to the Herder Institute in Riga as a full professor . In May 1937 he became a member of the NSDAP .
In the 1930s, Raumer hoped to do justice to his “national educational task” by depicting the “historical highlights” that strengthened the “self-confidence of the people” and the “times of national happiness”. In 1938 he declared that the view of history had turned from state history to popular history .
In 1939, Raumer received the former chair of the expelled Hans Rothfels at the Albertus University in Königsberg and in 1942 he was appointed professor for middle and modern history at the Westphalian Wilhelms University in Münster. Here he was also a member of the Historical Commission for Westphalia and 1943–1946 its chairman.
Although Raumer had discredited himself politically , he was able to keep his chair in Münster and continue teaching and researching without restrictions. However, he held back politically and publicly apologized to his colleagues at the Munich Historians' Day in 1949 . In the post-war years, Raumer specialized in economic and social history . In 1956 he was also a specialist reviewer for the German Research Foundation (DFG) and, from 1959, chairman of the history committee.
Kurt von Raumer, descendant of the old former Bavarian, later Saxon noble family von Raumer , was the great-grandson of the geologist, geographer and educator Karl Georg von Raumer (1753-1833) and the grandson of the linguist Rudolf von Raumer (1815-1876).
