Danish Transnationals: Reconciling “Roots” with “Routes”

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationResearchpeer-review


In January 2020 the world commemorated the 75th anniversary of Soviet liberation of Auschwitz. During the holocaust, the Germans erected the largest extermination camp ever in the modern world. Despite the persistence of proportionally lesser, but also cruel genocides against innocent peoples, societies largely acquiescence on the prevention of such man-made horrors. People, however, tend forgetting history except the traumatized victims and their relatives who continue to remember and resist. Among them include Danish transnationals. There exist at least two types of Danish transnationals, the historic ones and the more recent ones. Although the communities differ on the magnitude of inflicted persecution against them and subsequent endurance, Danish transnationals share certain survival characteristics, multiplicity of identities/belongings as well as constant concerns of existential uncertainties.
