PP London; Portland, Or. YR 2005 SN 1844720209 9781844720200 AB "In Hard Labour the voices of a group of young women who left Latvia in 1944 are captured, telling the story of their flight from the advancing Soviet Army, their difficult journeys across central Europe, their lives as displaced people in Allied camps in Germany and finally their refuge in Britain." "At the centre of Hard Labour are the lives of 25 Latvian women who came to Britain between 1946 and 1949. Their memories are placed in the context of recent work in feminist history, illuminating debates about displacement and loss as well as the transformation of women's lives in post-war Britain."--BOOK JACKET.
