Refugees and citizens in East-Central Europe in the 20th century

The Unlikely Refuge? Team at CEU Vienna

The Unlikely Refuge? team members participated at the “Remaking the World in the Shadow of the Cold War. Migrants, Workers, Soldiers, Spies in Post-1945 Reconstruction” workshop that took place at Central European University in Vienna on 1-2 June 2023. Apart from acting as chairs, two our researchers presented their own papers. Nikola Tohma gave a talk titled Turning Political Asylees into Stakhanovites: Greek Civil War Refugees as Builders of Postwar Czechoslovak Socialism. Julia Reinke presented her paper “Socialist in Content, National in Form”? Dealing with Refugee Children from the Greek Civil War in the Early German Democratic Republic and Communist Poland. The workshop was coorganized by CEU and the UnREF ERC project.
