Listen to a discussion that Astrid M. Eckert, Associate Professor of History, had with Marshall Poe of New Books in History about her new book, The Struggle for the Files: The Western Allies and the Return of German Archives after the Second World War.
At the end of World War II the Western Allies confiscated all the German archives they could locate and moved them out of the country. It would be almost a decade before the Federal Republic of Germany was able to bring these archives home. Astrid M. Eckert, Associate Professor of History at Emory University, describes the fascinating story of the confiscation and return of German archives in her new book The Struggle for the Files: The Western Allies and the Return of German Archives after the Second World War (Cambridge University Press, 2012). Marshall Poe interviewed Professor Eckert about her book for the webcast New Books in History. Click here to listen to the interview.
