This book focuses on the social voids that were the result of occupation, genocide, mass killings, and population movements in Europe during and after the Second World War. It sheds light on how destroyed European communities, once multi-ethnic and multi-religious, experienced postwar reconstruction, attempted to come to terms with what had happened, and negotiated remembrance.

Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.

Sabine Rutar is Acting Professor of Global History at the University of Potsdam and Senior Researcher at the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies in Regensburg.
