The German expellees : victims in war and peace by Alfred M De Zayas ( Book )
9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The closing phase and the aftermath of World War II saw millions of refugees and displaced persons wandering across Eastern Europe in one of the most brutal and chaotic migrations in world history. The genocidal barbarism of the Nazi forces has been well documented. What hitherto has been little researched is the fate of the fifteen million German civilians who found themselves at the mercy of the Soviet armies and on the wrong side of the new postwar borders. All over Eastern Europe, the inhabitants of communities that had been established for many centuries were either expelled or killed. Over two million Germans did not survive their forced displacement. Many of these people had supported Hitler, and for the Czechs, Poles, Ukrainians, and surviving Jews, their fate must have seemed just. However, most of these Germans - East Prussian farmers, Silesian industrial workers, their wives and children - were guiltless; their fate, sentenced purely by race, remains a terrible legacy of the period. Alfred de Zayas's book (first published in German to great acclaim) describes this retribution. On the basis of extensive research in German and American archives, he sketches the history of these German communities, scattered from the Baltic to the Danube, focusing not only on their suffering but also on their pioneering achievements and the outstanding literature and art produced over the centuries. He also interviews many survivors from the catastrophic exodus that marked the terrible end to Nazi fantasies of Lebensraum

"In this fully revised and updated edition, Alfred-Maurice de Zayas documents how the closing phase and the aftermath of World War II saw millions of refugees and displaced persons wandering across Eastern Europe in one of the most brutal and chaotic migrations in world history. The genocidal barbarism of the Nazi forces has been well documented. What is little known is the fate of fifteen million German civilians who found themselves on the wrong side of new postwar borders. All over Eastern Europe, the inhabitants of communities that had been established for many centuries were either expelled or killed. Over two million Germans did not survive. Some of these people had supported Hitler, but the great majority did not. In A Terrible Revenge, de Zayas describes their horrible fate. This new edition includes an updated foreword, epilogue, and additional information from recent interviews with the children of the displaced."--p. [4] of cover

Larenopfer = Offerings to Lares by Rainer Maria Rilke ( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in German and English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This translation of the Larenopfer, or offerings to the household god Lar, are songs that Rilke sings to his hometown Prague and to his beloved Bohemia, short poems on the parks, fountains, churches, bridges and palaces of Prague, not forgetting Rabbi Löw's legends, the Jewish cemetery, the Thirty Years War and, of course, young love. This cycle of 90 poems offers the reader a unique view into Rilke's fascinating world, the turn-of-the-century atmosphere of Prague, then the third largest city in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Here a young German of the ruling bourgeoisie shows great appreciation of contemporary Czech literary works and enthusiasm for the cause of Czech cultural identity. The book therefore possesses not only literary merit but is also of considerable sociological and historical interest. --Red Hen Press

Voices of loss and courage : German women recount their expulsion from East Central Europe, 1944-1950 ( Book )
2 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At the conclusion of World War II, the Allies expelled some 14.5 million German civilians from their homelands-- both German citizens (Reichsdeutsche) living within Germany in the areas of East Prussia, Pomerania, Brandenburg, and Silesia and ethnic Germans (Volksdeutsche), whose ancestors had lived for many centuries in areas outside the German borders, in Czechoslovakia, the Baltic States and Memeland, Danzig, Poland, Hungary, Yugoslavia and Romania. This forced Vertreibung or expulsion represents the largest mass migration of modern times. Astoundingly, it has received minimal attention in history books, and has been relegated to a footnote of history. This book is a memorial to those millions of civilians, and especially to the women, who were stigmatized because they were German. The authors interviewed many women who were in the Vertreibung, and have included here some thirty of their interviews
