History Lost in Time

Jul 25, 2012

Following the holocaust was the single greatest forged migration in human history, orchestrated by…the allies. Didn’t know about one of the darkest sides of the allies World War II victory?…well, neither did we. Today we explore why some events make the history books and others are lost in time, and how historians have shaped the history that we remember and the history we choose to forget. Our guest Ray Douglas is chairman of the history department at Colgate University. He recently published his new book “Orderly and Humane: The Expulsion of the Germans After the Second World War,” which documents the expulsion of between 12 million and 14 million German-speaking civilians from various European countries to war torn following the atrocities of the holocaust.
