This study explores the role of refugees in international relations by looking at the largest involuntary migration of Ukrainians in history. Using both Western and newly available Soviet sources it sheds light on Grand Alliance policies towards World War II Ukrainian refugees. It demonstrates how the activities of this particular group of refugees had an impact on international refugee policy and provides insight into the origins of the Cold War.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[This book] is the first attempt to depict and analyse the Ukrainian role in the formulation of international policy regarding refugees. It is an important

contribution to the fast-expanding field of Refugee Studies and also an

original contribution to the study of Ukrainian history. The international agencies were ambiguous in their handling of this group, partly because of Allied agreements on repatriation of nationals after the war, and partly because the term 'Ukrainian' was hard to define in the light of the Soviet Treaty on Borders of 1939. Ukrainian refugees at first not permitted so to define themselves. By examining the treatment and behaviour of a single group within the post-war refugee population, the author has helped to clarify international

refugee policy. Dr Dyczok has also confronted the difficult issue of Ukrainian complicity in German war crimes, and she has revised received opinion on Soviet treatment of repatriated Ukrainians. The range of her materials, from archival to interviews, is impressive and exhaustive, the book is written in a lucid and uncluttered style, and should find a readership beyond a specialized

academic audience. Apart from an obvious Ukrainian interest, it should also

be presented as a contribution to War Studies and Refugee Studies'. - Harry Shukman, Emeritus fellow, St Antony's College, Oxford

'...a well-researched study detailing the almost forgotten story of the Ukrainian refugees and the unbelievably naIve attitude of the western powers...' - Slavic Review
