This is a book about four cities which were several times, and especially in connection with World War II, forcedly, put into completely new national contexts. This was affected by coercion from outside. The changes included genocide and forced displacement, but preserved built environment testifies past populations and national contexts. This book describes the urban environment in the four cities before World War II, and how the present population handles the memories of the past for future development.
In connection with World War II and its aftermaths, many of the four cities residents of Chisinau, Cernivci, Lviv and Wroclaw were either killed or subject to forced migration beyond the new national borders. People settled in the city environment which still bore the traces of the earlier population and the earlier urban life that had been brutally put to an end.
Due to the continued Russian military aggression on the territory of Ukraine, this study takes on a new relevance.
