    Coming Home to Germany?: The Integration of Ethnic Germans from Central and Eastern Europe in the Federal Republic

    Because Google Books makes now books available or available in samples, it's easier to find material online about the ethnic Germans in the enclaves. Here a book I found:

    Coming Home to Germany?: The Integration of Ethnic Germans from Central and Eastern Europe in the Federal Republic

    By David Rock, Stefan Wolff

    The end of World War II led to one of the most significant forced population transfers in history: the expulsion of over 12 million ethnic Germans from Central and Eastern Europe between 1945 and 1950 and the subsequent emigration of another four million in the second half of the twentieth century. Although unprecedented in its magnitude, conventional wisdom has it that the integration of refugees, expellees, and Aussiedler was a largely successful process in postwar Germany. While the achievements of the integration process are acknowledged, the volume also examines the difficulties encountered by ethnic Germans in the Federal Republic and analyses the shortcomings of dealing with this particular phenomenon of mass migration and its consequences.

    This is true. You won't find too many libraries that would stock a book about former German enclaves in Mediterranean and Slavic lands.
    There is surprisingly not much information, at least in English. The only group that has received some interest had been the Volga Germans (and mainly as a result of their oppressions in the Soviet Union. And even when the Volga German massacre occurred, there were more ''Volga Germans'' in the States than in Russia)
