By invitation, the Germans had migrated down the Danube in three major waves beginning more than 700 years ago, and settled in mountainous areas of Bohemia and Moravia. These Ethnic Germans became very prosperous and those in Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia were known as Danube Swabians.
In 1939, the Czech President expelled the German minority, with many executed with utmost brutality, resulting 1 million Sudeten Germans losing their lives.
Between 14 and 15 Million civilians were driven out of their homelands, and resulted in at least 2 Million civilian deaths, many of whom were brutally murdered.
That figure does not include the surrendered soldiers who died later in Eisenhower’s death camps, Soviet Gulags, nor those taken into slavery by the allies. In 1947, an estimated 4,000,000 Germans were being used as slave labour for the victorious “liberators” of Germany.
