Please view our conversation with the book author of The Last Million: Europe's Displaced Persons from World War to Cold War 

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.

David Nasaw is the Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. Professor of History at The Graduate Center, CUNY.

Discussant:
