He studied at the universities of Berlin and Munich and was appointed to the chair of classical philology at the University of Königsberg in 1930 but dismissed from office in 1934 due to his Jewish origin. He emigrated to Great Britain on the eve of World War II and settled in Oxford, teaching classes at the University and remaining there after the war. He died in 1964.
