    Schrade was born in Allenstein, Germany which is present-day Olsztyn, Poland. Schrade represents politically what O. K. Werckmeister termed the post-war bourgeois rehabilitation of previously Nazi art historians. “Suspended from office at the end of the war, [they] were later reappointed to imporatn chairs where a number of less outspoken fellow travelers [i.e., other art historians supporting the Reich] had simply continued in their posts.”
