View Full Version : Sudeten Germans' View on Their Expulsions After WWII - "Only Their Own Problem"

Sudeten Germans' view on their expulsions after World War Two is only their own problem, and Czechs have no right to criticise it, Lubos Palata writes in Lidove noviny (LN) today, referring to the exhibition organised by the German Expellees Union's foundation in Berlin.

The exhibition also focuses on deportations of Sudeten Germans from the post-war Czechoslovakia on the basis of the Benes decrees. Palata says that the new exhibition in Berlin is biased and it expediently conceals some historical facts. It commemorates the victims without admitting their portion of guilt for the Nazi atrocities.

"We have given up our natural right to show our view of the events that accompanied the separation of Czechs and Sudeten Germans. Our silence is wrong. We have no right to criticise the exhibition in Berlin. We have not even managed to prepare its equivalent," Palata writes in conclusion.

Czechs are fooling themselves if they think that the cause for their unprecedented genocide against ethnic Germans is rooted in Nazi-German history. Similar to Polish-occupied ethnic German territories, pogromes against Germans took place already before the unilateral declaration of independence of Czechoslovakia after the end of World War 1.
Sorry Czech folks, the so-called "Benes decrets" are illegal since they were never published! It is time that "Czechia" is being made to pay for its heinous crimes against humanity...
