Professor Dan Stone will give the eighteenth Annual Lecture in Honour of Hugo Valentin on 19 March 2020.
At the end of the Second World War, the United Nations encountered far more "unaccompanied children" than it was prepared for in occupied Germany. This lecture examines the work of the child search teams which located, cared for and sought to repatriate or resettle those children. It looks at the operation of the child search teams and considers the cases of some of the children involved, revealing the complex political and emotional work in which they were engaged, as well as the attempts some children made to play the system to their own advantage.
