'Wyman's book is the only one that comprehensively, and sensitively, depicts the plight of the postwar refugees in Western Europe.'?M. Mark Stolarik, University of Ottawa 'This is a fascinating and very moving book.'?International Migration Review 'Wyman has written a highly readable account of the movement of diverse ethnic and cultural groups of Europe's displaced persons, 1945-1951. An analysis of the social, economic, and political circumstances within which relocation, resettlement, and repatriation of millions of people occurred, this study is equally a study in diplomacy, in international relations, and in social history.... A vivid and compassionate recreation of the events and circumstances within which displaced persons found themselves, of the strategies and means by which people survived or did not, and an account of the major powers in response to an unprecedented human crisis mark this as an important book.'?Choice 'Wyman interviewed some eighty DPs as well as employees of various agencies who served them; he cites a broad range of published primary sources, secondary sources, and some archival material.... This book presents a useful overview and should stimulate further research.'?Journal of American Ethnic History
