The organizers of an academic conference on Eastern European émigrés and the Cold War, held in Lublin, Poland on November 13-15, 2008, were good enough to mail out a DVD of photos taken during the three day international symposium. Entitled “Secret Weapon, or Victims of the Cold War?” and organized by Dr. Slawomir Lukasiewicz, of Poland’s Instytut Pamięci Narodowej (Institute of National Remembrance), the conference brought together academics from all former Soviet bloc countries, as well as American, Canadian and Western European scholars with an interest in the relationship between political émigrés and the region’s former communist regimes. Included below are a handful of photos taken during the conference, with a focus on the syposium’s Hungarian and Canadian presenters.
