People on the Move by Pertti Ahonen

Book Description

Europe has a long history of state-led population displacement on ethnic grounds. The nationalist argument of ethnic homogeneity has been a crucial factor in the mapping of the continent. At no time has this been more the case than during and after the Second World War. Both under the aggressive expansionism of the Third Reich and after Germany's defeat, millions were brutally forced out of their homelands. Presenting a history from the top as well as the bottom, People on the Move reconstructs the complex map of forced population displacements that took place across Europe during and immediately after the Second World War.

Death at the Berlin Wall by Pertti Ahonen Death at the Berlin Wall, Hardback (December 2010)

Death at the Berlin Wall tells the stories of twelve individuals who lost their lives at the Wall between 1961 and 1989, and relates these tragedies to the evolving Cold War tensions between West and East Germany.

After the Expulsion by Pertti Ahonen After the Expulsion, Hardback (November 2003)

Examining the consequences of the removal of some 15 million Germans from Central and Eastern Europe after World War II, this text explores the impact of this human influx on the political development of West Germany, where more than half of those expelled settled, and analyses the consequences for Germany's foreign policy throughout the Cold War.
