Book Talk: “Holocaust Survivors in Exile in Germany after World War II”

Hosted By: The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)

The suffering of Holocaust survivors did not end with the cessation of hostilities in Europe in May of 1945, as documents, correspondence, and reports from Germany in the JDC Archives make abundantly clear. A quarter of a million who had survived the death, concentration, and labor camps or spent the war years in hiding or in the Soviet Union would after the Nazi defeat be forced to spend another three to five years in displaced persons camps in Germany.

David Nasaw, the author of The Last Million: Europe’s Displaced Persons from World War to Cold War, will tell the story of this tragic and too often overlooked chapter in Jewish history.
