At the end of the Pacific War in 1945, millions of Koreans were found outside Korea’s borders, primarily in China and Japan.  They had left Korea to pursue work, school, and family; many had been given no choice at all in their departure, conscripted as laborers of all kinds by organs of the Japanese government and military.  In 1945, the direction of movement was reversed and millions returned to the peninsula, only to find the country divided and occupied by other foreign forces.  What were the consequences of their repatriation?  How were they received in the south?  Where did they go?  This talk is a preliminary look into repatriates and so-called war refugees in the immediate liberation period.
