In TV Land, a doctor or scientist is roughly 75% likely to be German or Austrian, complete with thick accent and often [[TheVonTropeFamily an entitled legacy]]. Increase to 98% for {{Mad Scientist}}s. We can probably thank [[AllPsychologyIsFreudian Sigmund Freud]], UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wernher_von_Braun Wernher von Braun]]. Many top-notch Jewish scientists from Germany, Austria, and Poland fled Nazi persecution in the pre-war and early-war period. Many more War Criminals attempted to flee to western Germany in the final months of the war to avoid capture and trial (for the various amoral deeds they had done ForScience and for personal gain). This allowed the USA to [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse threaten them with acceptance of eastern European extradition requests (for trial) and offer them free passage to and employment in US government projects]] (''Operation Paperclip''). These German-Jewish refugees and ex-Nazis were prominent in many scientific fields during this period, especially [[AtomicHate The Manhattan Project]] and US Space Programme. Several wartime theories and inventions designed to aid the war effort, for good or ill, eventually changed how people lived when they were mass-manufactured and sold to the public. This cemented the longstanding trope of foreign geniuses being boons to welcoming societies.
