Bernard and Irene Schwartz Distinguished Speakers Series
Featuring: David Nasaw, Judith Shulevitz
The surrender of Germany to the Allied powers in May 1945 was only the beginning for the millions of people left displaced and homeless in Europe after the war. Exhaustive repatriation efforts settled some, but a million refugees still remained left behind in Germany. Join acclaimed historian David Nasaw as he illuminates the heartbreaking, and sometimes shocking, story of the Last Million as they moved forward into an unknowable future.
David Nasaw is the author of The Last Million: Europe's Displaced Persons from World War to Cold War and until 2019 served as the Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. Professor of History at the CUNY Graduate Center.
Judith Shulevitz (moderator) is a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times and the author of The Sabbath World: Glimpses of a Different Order of Time.
