Between 1933, when the Nazis came to power, and the end of the Second World War in 1945, displacement, enforced emigration and deportation became commonplace for families, particularly Jewish families, across Europe. Based on a collection of postcards, envelopes and other ephemera, and covering post from alien internment camps, refugee organizations, refugees in China and Japan, and displaced persons after 1945, this book explores how postal communication – often the only remaining link between separated family members – was achieved in wartime.
