Bruno Touschek was an Austrian born theoretical physicist, who proposed and built the first electron-positron collider in 1960 in the Frascati National Laboratories in Italy. In this note we reconstruct a crucial period of Bruno Touschek's life so far scarcely explored, which runs from Summer 1945 to the end of 1946. We shall describe his university studies in G\"ottingen, placing them in the context of the reconstruction of German science after 1945. The influence of Werner Heisenberg and…
