Über 70 Jahre in der Sowjetunion haben die Erinnerungskultur der Russlanddeutschen nachhaltig und generationenübergreifend geprägt. Angesichts der etwa 2,4 Millionen Bundesbürger:innen mit russlanddeutscher Migrationsgeschichte stellt ihre Erfahrung von Verfolgung, aber auch vom Leben in einer Diktatur einen erheblichen Teil gesamtdeutscher Erinnerung dar. Dieses spezifisch russlanddeutsche Gepäck ist jedoch bisher kaum bekannt, geschweige denn sichtbar. Der vorliegende Band möchte für die Vielstimmigkeit einer sich immer wieder neu aushandelnden Erinnerungskultur in Deutschland sensibilisieren. Am russlanddeutschen Beispiel wird auf die Herausforderungen, aber auch die Chancen neuer, migrantischer Narrationen verwiesen. Diese können Perspektiven aufzeigen, wie sich zukünftig Erzählungen im postmigrantischen Deutschland des 21. Jahrhunderts etablieren lassen könnten.
This volume offers original research focusing on the history of prostitution in Europe, and specifically, Central and East-Central Europe. While most existing literature on the topic comes in the form of monographs focusing on a specific country, this edited collection has a broader geographical scope. The papers approach the subject of prostitution from a broad range of perspectives and therefore offer an overview of the multiple sources and methodological approaches in the field of the history of prostitution. The edited collection contains three articles on prostitution in socialist countries in Eastern Europe. These articles are among the first to explore prostitution under socialism.
The Balkans provided the escape route for tens of thousands of German Jews, and remained a place of refuge until the Nazis brutally shut it off with the mass murder of Jewish refugees on the so-called Kladovo transport starting in September 1941, which can be considered as the beginning of the Holocaust in Europe. Responding to publications about the Western European and American exile experience of the Jews after 1933, this book offers comparative insights into the less trodden paths of the persecuted, illuminating the cultural and political context of the Balkan host countries, the response of local Jewish communities, and the reactions of common people and assorted criminals. The Balkans, often marginalised and loathed, emerges in hundreds of personal accounts of survivors gathered here, supplemented by extensive archival research, as a welcoming getaway, where thousands survived thanks to the Italian occupiers, illiterate peasants, and Communist-led Partisan resisters.

The lost world of the Eastern European Jews meets the lost world of life under the Soviet rule. From the Galician shtetl of Mościska (Mostyska)—now in Ukraine near the Polish border—the story follows a Jewish family through two World Wars, deportation to a labor camp under the Soviet regime, through Central Asia, the Middle East, to America. These are the lost worlds the author vividly brings to life. Holding onto Jewish tradition in the darkest of places, surviving mass, grave human rights violations. 80% of Polish Jews, who survived the Second World War, did so through the Soviet Union. Meier Landau and his family escaped Germans, but were deported by the Soviets from Lviv, along with thousands of other Jewish families. This is their story—prisoners in a world so strange, it is almost unbelievable to them. This text is a testament to the power of remembering—a necessary reading when war and refugees are present again where this real-life story unfolds.
