Citizens of no man's land. The Invisible Refugees of 1938

Monday 15 April at 6 pm

What was the no-man's land, how was it created, and why did it remain mainly Jewish refugees? With historian Michal Frankl about people between borders, loss of citizenship in Central Eastern Europe in the late 1930s. The lecture will not only explore the history and mapping of no-man's land, but will also use the examples of refugee testimonies to explore their perceptions of exclusion under
national borders and will analyse the role that images of these spaces and people have played in the media and in public. It will also look at the opportunities and challenges of aid from humanitarian organisations. Admission is voluntary.
