A heartwarming story about orphaned children welcomed by a loving Maharaja…Anuradha Bhattacharjee has written a marvelous book, rich with detail from archival sources, oral history, and letters and memoirs of the time. The Second Homeland is a must read…It’s a fascinating, exciting, moving but virtually unknown story from World War II. Highly recommended!
The Second Homeland... [tells] with affection and sympathy and perhaps for the first time in such detail, the full story of these children….Bhattacharjee has put together various valuable documents and photographs which give a clear sense of what life in the Balachadi camp was for these children…..The children of Jamnagar finally found, it seems, the narrator they had been waiting for.
The book captures the years that the children spent in India before being either back to Poland, Africa, US, Australia or Canada at the end of the war. It also offers substantial historical background, pierced together from archives and personal accounts.
A very well worked out research.... This book is a gem for the library of those who are interested in the study and research of displaced communities, European studies as well as those who keep a track of the history of arrival of different communities in India.
