Description: 
The present document is a book examining the situation and refugee experiences of the thousands that fled the Communist take-over of Slovenia in 1945. The book draws from two diary accounts and on other primary sources from this period: one written by a 38-year old social insurance clerk who fled with his wife and two small children, the other written from the contrasting view-point of the people running the camps – the British Army, the Red Cross and Quaker relief workers, and UNRRA, the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration.
