This volume provides an account of the movement of diverse ethnic and cultural groups of Europe's displaced persons between the years 1945-1951. An analysis of the social, economic and political circumstances within which relocation, resettlement and repatriation of millions of people occurred, this is equally a study in diplomacy, in international relations and in social history. It is a 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. The author interviewed 80 DPs, as well as the employees of various agencies who served them; he cites published primary sources, secondary sources and archival material in an overview which should stimulate further research.
