The Wild Place


From: Wanda’s War


Chapter 7 reflects on Wanda’s time as a displaced person in the Wildflecken displaced persons camp, which housed more than fifteen thousand displaced Poles. The chapter covers the living conditions in these camps, the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration’s (UNRA), repatriation efforts and the fear of forced repatriation to the newly Communist Poland, the undercurrent of political conflict and tension in postwar Germany, and Wanda’s schooling at the camp.
