She was the first girl to attend the Großherzogliches Badisches Gymnasium in Baden-Baden, from which she graduated in 1909. Stern studied history at the University of Heidelberg and the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, and she earned her doctorate from the latter in 1913. She was one of the first women to become a professional historian in Germany . Shortly after the founding of the Akademie für die Wissenschaft des Judentums in Berlin in 1919, Stern accepted an invitation to become one of its first research fellows. There, she began work on the first two volumes of her magnum opus Der Preussische Staat und Die Juden (The Prussian state and the Jews) , a study of Jewry in eighteenth-century Prussia. From 1947 to 1956, she was in charge of Jewish-American Archives at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati. " (Wikipedia, 2016) In very good+ condition. (GER-58-72) Ger9.
