            Immigrants and Foreigners in Central and Eastern Europe during the Twentieth Century challenges widespread conceptions of Central and Eastern European countries as merely countries of origin. It sheds light on their experience of immigration and the establishment of refugee regim...es at different stages in the history of the region. The book brings together a variety of case studies on Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia, and the experiences of return migrants from the United States, displaced Hungarian Jews, desperate German social democrats, re-settled Magyars, resourceful tourists, labour migrants, Zionists and female Bosnian guest workers. In doing so, it highlights and explores the variety of experience across different forms of immigration and discusses its broader social and political framework. Presenting the challenges within the history of immigration in Eastern Europe and considering both immigration to the region and emigration from it, Immigrants and Foreigners in Central and Eastern Europe during the Twentieth Century provides a new perspective on, and contribution to, this ongoing subject of debate.

            Holocaust Memory and Britain's Religious-Secular Landscape: Politics, Sacrality, And Diversity
             

            Holocaust Memory and Britain's Religious-Secular Landscape: Politics, Sacrality, And Diversity (Hardback)

            British state-supported Holocaust remembrance has dramatically grown in prominence since the 1990s. This monograph provides the first substantial discussion of the interface between public Holocaust memory in contemporary Britain and the nation's changing religious-secular landsc...ape. In the first half of the book attention is given to the relationships between remembrance activities and Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and post-Christian communities. Such relationships are far from monolithic, being entangled in diverse histories, identities, power-structures, and notions of 'British values'. In the book's second half, the focus turns to ways in which public initiatives concerned with Holocaust commemoration and education are intertwined with evocations and perceptions of the sacred. Three state-supported endeavours are addressed in detail: Holocaust Memorial Day, plans for a major new memorial site in London, and school visits to Auschwitz. Considering these phenomena through concepts of ritual, sacred space, and pilgrimage, it is proposed that response to the Holocaust has become a key feature of Britain's 21st century religious-secular landscape. Critical consideration of these topics, it is argued, is necessary for both a better understanding of religious-secular change in modern Britain and a sustainable culture of remembrance and national self-examination. This is the first study to examine Holocaust remembrance and British religiosity/secularity in relation to one another. As such, it will be of keen interest to scholars of Religious Studies, Jewish studies and Holocaust Studies, as well as the

            Guiding principles: Do chronicle the past as it really happened, Leopold von Ranke stressed long ago. Abiding by his spirit, this volume narrates the Hungarian nations quest for defending a sovereign existence while caught in the middle of a German-Soviet geopolitical struggle de...cisively influencing life and death. The narrative also considers the diligent Hungarian Jewish communitys attempt of carrying on a normal life despite facing severe domestic and foreign impediments, eventually leading to the enormous Holocaust tragedy. The author is mindful of Baruch Spinozas plea of ridicule not, bewail not, nor scorn human actions, but understand them. Rationality also dictates reflection upon Albert Einsteins appeal: Morality is of the highest importance for our very existence depends on it. Historical observations: Despite attending to Hungarys destabilizing irredentism, Hitler sought no Hungarian invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, and demanded large Honved forces only after his defeat in Moscow; The Holocausts intrusion into Hungary was triggered by a German military occupation, while local collusion and collaboration assisted it; Horthy was a calculating politician but not an anti-Semite, resulting in his uneven, positive and negative treatment of the Jewish Magyars; Szalasi was an anti-Jewish zealot proposing expulsion, but not genocide; Christians individuals and institutions saved many Jewish Magyars; Swedish humanitarian Wallenberg was an American secret agent; Not an Alpine redoubt, but Festung Budapest defended the Reich; 1941-1945, circa 500,000 Jewish and 600,000 non-Jewish Magyars died; Intervention, war, and a coup ended the Old Order and the Magyar monarchy.
