The history of Europe is permeated with enforced exodus, displaced peoples and mass migration. Philipp Ther explores the major expulsions and their aftermath first set in motion throughout modern Europe by Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain in 1492, Amelia Gentleman explores the impact of the Windrush Scandal and Panikos Panayi examines the immigrants who have made London great, from those escaping the pogroms of Eastern Europe in the Victorian era to the post-war Windrush generation.
