    Expellee 'Provocation': Prague Refuses Apology to Sudeten Germans

    Der Spiegel ( Germany )

    An annual meeting of post-World War II expellees was marred this weekend by bad blood with Prague . The Czech president was outraged after an expellee leader suggested that an apology for their expulsion was in order. The row threatens the fragile process of reconciliation between the two sides. The Czech Republic and a group representing those Germans who were expelled from then-Czechoslovakia after World War II -- the Sudeten Germans -- have been working for decades to reconcile their uncomfortable past. But over the Pentecost holiday weekend, the process suffered a serious blow after the two sides exchanged barbs.

    Thanks for that link. Click on the lower map on the left side in the article. The extent of German settlements in the east is amazing. I'm currently reading the Giles MacDonogh book "After the Reich" to learn more about this period right after WW2.
