World War I and World War II brought displacement to civilizations on an unprecedented scale. Displacements were geographical, cultural, and psychological; based on nationality, sex or age. They produced an astonishing range of human experience, recorded by the participants in different ways. This collection unites historians and literary scholars in exploring this displacement, drawing on a wealth of primary source materials and resources, including archives from across the world.
