You are invited to a free Zoom discussion of the new book, The Last Million: Europe’s Displaced Persons from World War to Cold War, by David Nasaw, on Thursday, May 13, 2021 from 10:45 AM to 12 Noon, CT. See sponsors below and register at: https://bit.ly/2Pxh9Fb
Summary: A masterwork from acclaimed historian David Nasaw, The Last Million tells the gripping yet until now largely hidden story of postwar displacement and statelessness. By 1952, the Last Million were scattered around the world. As they crossed from their broken past into an unknowable future, they carried with them their wounds, their fears, their hope, and their secrets. Here for the first time, Nasaw illuminates their incredible history and, with profound contemporary resonance, shows us that it is our history as well.
There are still a few complementary copies of this book available if you plan to watch the discussion on May 13th. First come, first served.
