"Wyman's book is the only one that comprehensively, and sensitively, depicts the plight of the postwar refugees in Western Europe."—M. Mark Stolarik, University of Ottawa "This is a fascinating and very moving book."—International Migration Review "Wyman has written a highly readable account of the movement of diverse ethnic and cultural groups of Europe's displaced persons, 1945-1951. An analysis of the social, economic, and political circumstances within which relocation, resettlement, and repatriation of millions of people occurred, this study is equally a study in diplomacy, in international relations, and in social history. . . . A vivid and compassionate recreation of the events and circumstances within which displaced persons found themselves, of the strategies and means by which people survived or did not, and an account of the major powers in response to an unprecedented human crisis mark this as an important book."—Choice "Wyman interviewed some eighty DPs as well as employees of various agencies who served them; he cites a broad range of published primary sources, secondary sources, and some archival material. . . . This book presents a useful overview and should stimulate further research."—Journal of American Ethnic History

In seinem interdisziplinären Zugriff konkurrenzlos, in seiner diskursgeschichtlichen Anlage ein Nachschlagewerk völlig neuen Typs: Das Lexikon der 'Vergangenheitsbewältigung' präsentiert in 170 Einträgen erstmals die politischen und künstlerischen, juristischen und gesellschaftlichen, wissenschaftlichen und medialen Auseinandersetzungen mit der NS-Vergangenheit. Die kritische Aufarbeitung der zentralen Ereignisse und Debatten des bundesrepublikanischen Erinnerungsdiskurses - von 'Auschwitzprozess' bis 'Zwangsarbeiterentschädigung' - mündet so zugleich in eine aufschlussreiche Kulturgeschichte deutscher Befindlichkeiten nach dem Holocaust. Mit einem Vorwort von Micha Brumlik.

Lager – Repatriierung – Integration: Zwischen diesen Polen bewegte sich die Existenz der Displaced Persons (DPs) in Deutschland. Die in diesem Band versammelten Beiträge reflektieren dabei Bereiche, die von der Displaced Persons-Forschung bislang nicht ausreichend bearbeitet worden sind: Jugoslawische DPs sind ebenso Thema wie polnische Repatrianten. Die Architektur jüdischer DP-Synagogen wird genauso in den Blick genommen wie die Integration „Heimatloser Ausländer“ in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Einen Schwerpunkt bilden Beiträge zur Geschichte baltischer und polnischer DPs. Der Band ist Resultat der Tagung „Dimensionen der Displaced Persons-Forschung II“, die im Akademiezentrum Sankelmark vor allem Nachwuchswissenschaftler*innen aus dem Bereich der DP-Forschung zusammenbrachte.

Refugee displacement is a global phenomenon that has uprooted millions of individuals over the past century. In the 1980s, repatriation became the preferred option for resolving the refugee crisis. As human rights achieved global eminence, refugees' right of return fell under its umbrella. Yet return as a right and its practice as a rite created a radical disconnect between principle and everyday practice, and the repatriation of refugees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) remains elusive in cases of forced displacement of victims by ethnic conflict. Reviewing cases of ethnic displacement throughout the twentieth century in Europe, Asia, and Africa, Howard Adelman and Elazar Barkan juxtapose the empirical lack of repatriation in cases of ethnic conflict, unless accompanied by coercion. The emphasis on repatriation during the last several decades has obscured other options, leaving refugees to spend years warehoused in camps. Repatriation takes place when identity, defined by ethnicity or religion, is not at the center of the displacing conflict, or when the ethnic group to which the refugees belong are not a minority in their original country or in the region to which they want to return. Rather than perpetuate a ritual belief in return as a right without the prospect of realization, Adelman and Barkan call for solutions that bracket return as a primary focus in cases of ethnic conflict.

The period of the 'long' Second World War (1936-1948) was marked by mass movements of diverse populations: 60 million people either fled or were forced from their homes. This book considers the Spanish Republicans fleeing Franco's Spain in 1939, the French civilians trying to escape the Nazi invasion in 1940, and the millions of people displaced or expelled by the forces of Hitler's Third Reich. Throughout this period state and voluntary organisations were created to take care of the homeless and the displaced. National organisations dominated until the end of the war; afterwards, international organisations - the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Agency and the International Refugee Organisation - were formed to deal with what was clearly an international problem. Using case studies of displaced people and of relief workers, this book is unique in placing such crises at the centre rather than the margins of wartime experience, making the work nothing less than an alternative history of the Second World War.

Seventy years have passed since the tortured inmates of Hitler’s concentration and extermination camps were liberated. When the horror of the atrocities came fully to light, it was easy for others to imagine the joyful relief of freed prisoners. Yet for those who had survived the unimaginable, the experience of liberation was a slow, grueling journey back to life. In this unprecedented inquiry into the days, months, and years following the arrival of Allied forces at the Nazi camps, a foremost historian of the Holocaust draws on archival sources and especially on eyewitness testimonies to reveal the complex challenges liberated victims faced and the daunting tasks their liberators undertook to help them reclaim their shattered lives. Historian Dan Stone focuses on the survivors—their feelings of guilt, exhaustion, fear, shame for having survived, and devastating grief for lost family members; their immense medical problems; and their later demands to be released from Displaced Persons camps and resettled in countries of their own choosing. Stone also tracks the efforts of British, American, Canadian, and Russian liberators as they contended with survivors’ immediate needs, then grappled with longer-term issues that shaped the postwar world and ushered in the first chill of the Cold War years ahead.
