  • New! Jeanne Dingell shares her article: The Question of the Polish Forced Labourer during and in the Aftermath of World War II: The Example of the Warthegau Forced Labourers

  • Triangles and Tribulations: The Politics of Nazi Symbols
    “This article explores the politics of “reclamation.” Its focus is on pink and black triangles, currently used as symbols for gay and lesbian pride and liberation.
