Findings of the thesis, written last year at the Chair of Contemporary History of the University of Mannheim, show that Sandig’s scientific work in the 1930s had been strongly influenced by Nazi ideology. He was much more willing to adapt his academic work to Nazi ideology than other university teachers: As a representative of Normative Business Administration, Sandig integrated Nazi ideas to such an extreme extent, that his work must widely be considered as contaminated with Nazi ideology. Although Sandig abandoned the Nazi ideology after World War II, he never acknowledged the error of his ways.
It is now clear that Curt Sandig can never be considered a role model for students and it is time to shed the name. The Bumiller Raab Foundation therefore decided to rename the residence hall after their founder Emilie Bumiller, whose maiden name was Emilie Raab. After the death of her husband, Emilie Bumiller used most of her fortune to support charitable work. Already in 1928, she had decided to fund the establishment of the Bumiller Raab Foundation. After the end of Word War II, the assets of the foundation were used to finance a large number of student accommodations in Mannheim.
