Summary
In this book natural scientists, engineers, physicians as well as historians and social scientists define and describe geo-hazards and associated technical disasters, natural disasters as a business case, medicine and its catastrophes as well as after war aspects of the Shoah, and the ́catastrophe ́ for Palestinians related to the happiness of Jews celebrating their new State of Israel. Scientific disciplines have their own view on catastrophes. In this book they discuss Gershom Scholem ́s Concept of Jewish Totality and describe the situation of Displaced Persons in Germany as well as the Nakba in 1948. They evaluate risk and opportunities from the insurance viewpoint and remind us of Hamburg ́s Flood Disaster in 1962 as well as the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. The book also includes other historical catastrophes in Japan, the Lisbon earthquake in 1755 and the Age of Enlightenment, and the eruption of the Tambora in 1815 followed by 'The year without summer'.--
