The 2nd and 3rd Generation. Experiences of the Descendants of Refugees from National Socialism. 1: A New Field? 2: Citizenship

Triennial Conference of the Research Centre for German & Austrian Exiles Studies, IMLR, University of London.

It has long been recognised that the experiences of refugees from National Socialism, their persecution, incarceration, hiding, emigration, resettlement, further migration, trauma and later lives has had an impact on their children and grandchildren. This conference explores this in all its facets and different expressions and focuses both on the relationship between the generations as well as the specific differences between generations.
