Trial access to Refugees, Relief and Resettlement: Forced Migration and World War II
By Sarah Gilmore, on 5 December 2023
UCL has trial access to Refugees, Relief and Resettlement: Forced Migration and World War II until 5th January 2024.
Refugees, Relief and Resettlement: Forced Migration and World War II chronicles the plight of refugees and displaced persons across Europe, North Africa, and Asia from 1935 to 1950, bringing together over 590,000 pages of pamphlets, ephemera, government documents, relief organization publications, and refugee reports that recount the causes, effects and responses to refugee crises before, during and shortly after World War II.
Documentation offers a first-hand record of the response of governments to various crises and shifts in policy; a chronicling of the aid work undertaken by NGOs and charities seeking to provide relief and aid in resettlement; and a recognition through individual narratives of the daily reality of the refugee experience. This archive enables researchers to examine not only the plight of those forced to resettle inside and outside their national borders, but also the many types of refugee situations that arose, from voluntary evacuations and the internment of individuals in displaced person (DP) camps to whole population transfers and the return of forced laborers.
