In the Children's Best Interests: Unaccompanied Refugee Children in Germany, 1945-1952
Dr. Taylor will discuss her latest book, In the Children's Best Interests: Unaccompanied Refugee Children in Germany, 1945-1952. After the dust settled at the end of WWII, 700,000 displaced persons remained in the American occupation zone in Germany. Among them were 40,000 unaccompanied children. For the agencies responsible for their care, they were a complex problem which took years to sort out. Their story still resonates today.
