Displaced Children – Child Survivors
Recently, the world has been facing the largest number of people forced to leave their home countries. Children, naturally, are among the victims of this massive displacement. 70 years ago, after WWII, in Europe around 10 to 11 million people were on the move – as survivors of the Shoah, liberated forced laborers and others persecuted by Nazi-Germany, and many of these were children. We believe the lessons learnt then are very relevant today.
In order to explore the experience of children after WWII and the know-how from work of e.g. welfare and Jewish organizations with these children, the International Tracing Service (ITS) in Bad Arolsen is organizing a joint workshop with the Max Mannheimer Studien Zentrum, Dachau and with guidance of the Holocaust Studies Program of the Western Galilee College, Akko, Israel on the topic of Life in the aftermath – Displaced Persons, Displaced Children and Child Survivors on the move: New approaches in education and research.
Here you will find the Call for Papers and we invite you to get back to us if you are interested in contributing to the Workshop.
We would also appreciate it if you could forward the CfP to your colleagues and other interested parties and would distribute it through your (digital) channels.
