Über das Buch

Many of the landscapes of East Central and Eastern Europe have been lastingly altered by the effects of migration, and especially of the forced migrations that took place there during and immediately after the Second World War. The authors of this volume investigate on the basis of Czech, Polish, Hungarian and Russian examples (among others) how these modifications occurred. At the centre of attention in the book is state-sponsored landscape planning in the context of state-controlled migration as well as the actions and attitudes of the migrants themselves and the ways in which they interacted with their landscape. In addition to looking at these factors, the authors also examine interpretations and modes of representation of landscape change in schoolbooks and on educational nature trails.
