Displaced Children – Child Survivors
International Workshop: 30 May – 1 June 2016
Max Mannheimer Studienzentrum (MMSZ), Dachau
Recently, the world is facing the largest number of people forced to leave their home countries. Children, naturally, are among the victims of this massive displacement.  70 years ago, after WWII, in Europe around 10 to 11 million people were on the move – as survivors of the Shoah, liberated forced laborers and others persecuted by Nazi-Germany, and many of these were children. We believe the lessons learnt then are very relevant today.
In order to explore the experience of children after WWII and the know-how from work of e.g. welfare and Jewish organizations with these children the International Tracing Service (ITS) in Bad Arolsen is organizing a joint workshop with the Max Mannheimer Studien Zentrum, Dachau and with guidance of  the Holocaust Studies Program of the Western Galilee College, Akko, Israel on the topic of
