The Last Million: Europe's Displaced Persons from World War to Cold War, with David Nasaw

published 11 months ago by Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs

The aftershocks of World War II did not end with German capitulation in May 1945. Millions were displaced, including concentration camp survivors, POWs, slave laborers, political prisoners, and Nazi collaborators. Many eventually returned home, but "the lost million" did not. Author David Nasaw and Carnegie Council President Joel Rosenthal discuss this forgotten chapter in history and its relevance to today.
