Tracking the traffic
Tracking the Traffic is an interdisciplinary project that addresses the history of trafficking in women as part of the history of migration in the 19th and 20th century.
Until the interwar period, women from Eastern Europe—many of them from Jewish families—became victims of internationally organized gangs of human traffickers.
