The aftershocks of World War II did not end with German capitulation in May 1945. Millions were displaced, including concentration camp survivors, POWs, slave laborers, political prisoners, and Nazi collaborators. Many eventually returned home, but "the lost million" did not. Author David Nasaw and Carnegie Council President Joel Rosenthal discuss this forgotten chapter in history and its relevance to today.

David Nasaw appears at the 2013 Library of Congress National Book Festival, Sep. 21, 2013.

Speaker Biography: The Arthur M. Schlesinger professor of history at City University of New York, David Nasaw excels at writing both scholarly and popular books. His scholarly works include "Schooled to Order: A Social History of Public Schooling in the United States" and "Children of the City: At Work and at Play." He has also written best-selling and highly regarded biographies of some of America's most fascinating characters: "The Chief: The Life of William Randolph Hearst," "Andrew Carnegie" and his most recent, "The Patriarch: The Remarkable Life and Turbulent Times of Joseph P. Kennedy." The New York Times heaped praise on the book, calling it "riveting history" a book hard to put down, a garland not lightly bestowed on a cinder block numbering 787 pages of text."
