Die Beiträge spiegeln die universelle Bedeutung der jüdisch-diasporischen Geschichtserfahrung in der Moderne. Mit neuen Perspektiven zur Ideen- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte, zu Politik, Literatur und Migration entwerfen sie ein vielfältiges Bild einer integrierten jüdischen Geschichtsschreibung. Die Autorinnen und Autoren nutzen dabei interdisziplinäre und transnationale Zugänge und betten die Geschichte der Judenheiten in den historischen Kontext ihrer Mehrheitsgesellschaften ein. Der Band liefert so neue Forschungsergebnisse, die Erkenntnisse für die jüdischen Studien ebenso wie die allgemeine Geschichte Europas, Amerikas und des Nahen Ostens bereithalten.

Zwischen Flucht und Arbeitsmigration: sudetendeutsche Flüchtlinge in Schweden. Nach dem Münchner Abkommen 1938 fanden viele verfolgte sudetendeutsche Sozialdemokraten und Kommunisten Zuflucht in Skandinavien, insbesondere in Schweden. Mit dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs und der Vertreibung der Deutschen aus der Tschechoslowakei verloren nicht nur die meisten der Flüchtlinge ihre Option auf Rückkehr. Bis Mitte der 1950er Jahre folgten ihnen nun weitere sudetendeutsche Immigranten. Rudolf Tempsch zeigt am Beispiel der insgesamt etwa 5.000 nach Schweden geflohenen Sudetendeutschen zum einen, wie politische Flüchtlinge während des Kriegs empfangen wurden und wie sie sich an die schwedische Gesellschaft anpassten, zum anderen aber auch, wie nach dem Krieg die ersten Arbeitsmigranten angeworben und aufgenommen wurden. Die Aufnahme der Sudetendeutschen in Schweden stellt ein besonders erfolgreiches Beispiel für die Integration von Migranten in die Gesellschaft des skandinavischen Landes dar, das von den regierenden Sozialdemokraten in diesen Jahren im Sinne ihres Ideals eines wohlfahrtsstaatlichen "Volksheims" gestaltet wurde.

The Morgenthau Plan, the Allies' post-war policy that preceded the Marshall Plan, devastated what remained of Germany after the war was officially over. Was this economic idiocy OCo or intentional destruction of a surrendered country? The current work documents how the Morgenthau Plan was designed to completely destroy the German economy, enslave millions of her citizens, and exterminate as many as 20 million people. John Dietrich demonstrates this through countless documented quotes from official sources. What had changed by 1947, and why was the Morgenthau Plan finally rejected, swept under the carpet, and radically reversed? Where are today's professional historians and why is this stunning episode in US postwar policy minimized or ignored?"

Seventy years have passed since the tortured inmates of Hitler’s concentration and extermination camps were liberated. When the horror of the atrocities came fully to light, it was easy for others to imagine the joyful relief of freed prisoners. Yet for those who had survived the unimaginable, the experience of liberation was a slow, grueling journey back to life. In this unprecedented inquiry into the days, months, and years following the arrival of Allied forces at the Nazi camps, a foremost historian of the Holocaust draws on archival sources and especially on eyewitness testimonies to reveal the complex challenges liberated victims faced and the daunting tasks their liberators undertook to help them reclaim their shattered lives. Historian Dan Stone focuses on the survivors—their feelings of guilt, exhaustion, fear, shame for having survived, and devastating grief for lost family members; their immense medical problems; and their later demands to be released from Displaced Persons camps and resettled in countries of their own choosing. Stone also tracks the efforts of British, American, Canadian, and Russian liberators as they contended with survivors’ immediate needs, then grappled with longer-term issues that shaped the postwar world and ushered in the first chill of the Cold War years ahead.
