I am compiling a collection of "second generation" academic memoir essays by those who were born and raised in post-Second World War Eastern Europe, particularly Poland, and are now academics or scholars in US institutions.

If possible, we can begin by convening a group of scholars (Polish, Polish American, and others with East-European roots) who are descendants of victims of German crimes in German-occupied Europe. (Tri-state area?)Those who have already done research in this area are particularly welcome. The goal is to expand the dominant American narrative of WWII, shaped during the Cold War.
