Discussion | New Beginnings: Jewish Refugees After the Holocaust (virtual)


At the conclusion of World War II, there were millions of refugees in Europe, including many Holocaust survivors who refused to go home or had no homes to return to. These survivors experienced struggles and successes as they sought to rebuild their lives in the shadow of the Holocaust, often in Displaced Persons (DP) camps. Tens of thousands emigrated to the United States between 1947 and 1953 and many more found their way to Israel. Explore the stories of these survivors and the lives they lived in the years immediately after the war. The program will feature David Nasaw, historian and author of The Last Million: Europe's Displaced Persons from World War to Cold War; Esther Safran Foer, author of I Want You To Know We're Still Here: A Post-Holocaust Memoir; and Joseph Berger, New York Times reporter who authored an account of his own family's experiences titled Displaced Persons: Growing Up American After the Holocaust.
