Internal Migration

I'm starting to put together material for a new article and was hoping that some of you might be able to help. I was thinking back to Eastern Europe in the 1970s, recalling what might be called internal migration. It was the habit of small groups of tightly bonded friends to retreat in their free time into different kinds of fantasy worlds as a way of coping with the stresses of life under communism. In Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia that I was most familiar with it was quite a marked pattern.
