Summary

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 regimes 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.
