Prior to World War II, only three women achieved the German qualification for teaching at a university, the Habilitation in the field of physics: Lise Meitner, Hertha Sponer, and Hedwig Kohn. All three ultimately fled Nazi Germany.

She was awarded her doctorate in physics 1913 and was given the position of her professors assistant soon after beginning work under the direction of Otto Lummer.
