After the end of World War Two an exodus, unique in history, took place. Due to the continuing Anti-Semitism, thousands of Jewish survivors of the Holocaust were striving for ways out of Europe in order to reach the USA or Palestine/Israel. Between the years 1946 and 1948 numerous Jewish refugees were spending some time in the DP-Camp "Givat Avoda" in Saalfelden. For this reason Historians from Europe, the USA, and Israel gathered in Saalfelden in 2009, participating in a symposium that aimed at investigating the traces of these people.

The present volume, an anthology of all the contributions held at the symposium, describes, illustrates, and comments on the various escape itineraries from Eastern Europe towards the Italian harbors and the role played by the escape support movement "Bricha." The volume also reveals the living conditions of the refugees on their way through Europe and after their arrival in the new, desired homelands.
