Virtual Tenement Talk – The Last Million: Europe’s Displaced People from World War II to the Cold War


When: Wednesday, December 7, 2022, 6:30 - 7:30 pm ET

Event Location: YouTube Live

Cost: Suggested Donation

Join us on December 7th for a special virtual Tenement Talk on Youtube Live with acclaimed historian and bestselling author David Nasaw discussing his latest book that examines the failures of the international community to resettle over one million displaced people following World War II, who refused to go home or had no homes to return to. By 1952, the Last Million were scattered around the world. As they crossed from their broken past into an unknowable future, they carried with them their wounds, their fears, their hope, and their secrets.

Mark Hetfield, the Director of HIAS, an international refugee resettlement organization, will participate in the discussion to draw comparisons with the current refugee crisis. This conversation will take place in our Epstein family apartment which tells the story of a family who came to the US through HIAS after surviving the Holocaust.
