1945 heralded the end of a war that devastated the entire world. Yet peace did not bring union but instead traumatic diasporas and a splintering of East and West. Gabrielle Ryan discussed with Ella Carey, Alison Booth and Rosetta Allan traces of ordeal, undercurrents of Cold War suspicion, and the chances for renewal faced by their characters in the post war period.
