Austrian Children and Youth Fleeing Nazi Austria Podcast Series
with Guest Host Jacqueline Vansant
Only a limited number of Jewish children, accompanied or alone, immigrated to the United States during WWII. As a result perhaps, research examining this subject has been largely overlooked. Austrian children and youth who fled Nazi-occupied Austria to land safely, against all the odds, in the United States has been even more neglected in terms of academic research. Here, however, in this extraordinary podcast series to support the related Journal of Austrian-American History Special Issue, guest host Jacqueline Vansant, professor emerita of German at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, discusses three different research perspectives examining Austrian-Jewish Child Migration during WWII with expert and engaging guests.
