Post-War Europe: Refugees, Exile and Resettlement, 1945-1950 is a new online collection of primary source materials from the holdings of the Weiner Library and The National Archives in the UK and supports research and teaching on post-World War II Europe.

This unique archive covers the international politics leading the administration, care, repatriation and emigration of the Displaced Persons (DPs) as well as the situation and plight of the survivors, both Jews and non-Jews, of the Holocaust and World War Two, and their reintroduction to life and community. A large percentage of the DPs were refugees from Eastern European countries fleeing Soviet rule who were not able to return to their homelands until after the fall of the Berlin wall.

Themes covered in this new archive include the administration of refugee camps across Europe including England, Germany, Italy, Hungary and Yugoslavia; Displaced Persons' Assembly Centre reports, Jewish Relief Unit field reports, British Military Government in Germany, Belsen DP Camp, the Maclean Mission in Italy, the politics of the Refugee Crisis and the strengthening of the Zionist cause.

The collection includes introductory and thematic essays by leading scholars with direct hyperlinks to the original documents, as well as five documentary British Pathe films which provide visual evidence of key issues covered by the documents.

Post-War Europe: Refugees, Exile and Resettlement, 1945-1950 is an invaluable source for research, research-based teaching and students of Jewish studies, German history, Holocaust and World War II studies, Displaced Persons (DPs) and Refugee studies, Genocide, and Peace studies.

This online archive contains material previously published in the microfilm collection Testaments to the Holocaust, Series 3: The Henriques Archive.
