New Article: Veidlinger, Migration of Jewish Displaced Persons, 1945–7

Veidlinger, Jeffrey. “One Doesn’t Make Out Much with Furs in Palestine: The Migration of Jewish Displaced Persons, 1945–7.” East European Jewish Affairs 44.2-3 (2014) 241-52.





Based on the interviews David Boder conducted with Holocaust survivors in 1946, this article explores the realm of migration choices that were available to Jewish survivors in European Displaced Persons camps. The article argues that, aided by Jewish philanthropic and self-help organisations, many Displaced Persons had already established long-term strategies for their postwar lives by 1946.
