The fall of the Berlin Wall, a resurgent European Union and the restructuring of the "Soviet" empire have provoked increased study in the post-World War II period. To meet this demand, Gale has partnered with the Wiener library and the National Archives of the UK to create Post-War Europe: Refugees, Exile and Resettlement, 1945-1950 – a new online collection unlike any other comprised entirely of primary source documents. This unique archive covers the international politics leading to the administration, care, repatriation and emigration of the Displaced Persons (DPs), as well as the plight of survivors, both Jews and non-Jews, of the Holocaust and World War II, and their reintroduction into life and community. It is an invaluable source for teaching and learning in Jewish studies, German history, Holocaust and World War II studies, Displaced Persons (DPs) and Refugee studies, Genocide, and Peace studies.
A sample listing of the primary sources in this archive include:
