World War II and the years following it witnessed the greatest demographic turmoil in the history of mankind. As a result of Nazi genocide, Germany's aggressive territorial expansion, and the vengeance of the occupied peoples after the German defeat, millions of men and women were forced out of their homelands. Central and Eastern Europe were most seriously affected. This book takes a comprehensive look at the whole of humanity displaced by WWII, from POWs to Jewish citizens.
