    1 thought on “A Terrible Revenge: The Ethnic Cleansing of the East European Germans

    1. This weekend I read the book A terrible revenge out aloud to my Husband since he was not aware of any of that part of history A few times I stopped reading because my voice was choked with emotion This book tells the brutal expulsion of Ethnic Germans in the entire East the killings, the torture, the brutal mass rapes, starvation, looting, the mass deportation carried out on a unprecedented scale Nazi camps in the East were not dismantled but rather been taken over by the new owners, turned into [...]

    2. I am grateful to the author who wrote about a subject I am part of and always felt nobody wanted to hear.

    3. A gripping account of a side of European history little known in the US This is book discusses what happened to those German civilians who lived in the path of the Red Army in the latter part of World War II The Red Army acted with incredible brutality, avenging the brutalization of their own land with horrific intensity Millions of Germans fled for their lives, some escaped, many did not This book describes their plight.

    4. Good book This is my second time reading it Contains photos, maps and extensive notes for further research into the time and place Corresponds with a lot of my own research interviewing family and friends who survived the end of the Second World War with long lasting psychological scars Could be an eye opener for many Highly recommended.

    5. Ghastly A good starting point for those looking for records of what happened to people associated with the defeated side The Second World War didn t end happily with that sailor kissing the nurse on the street .

    6. What I find odd about literature on post WWII displaced persons both this book and others is that the expulsion of 400 000 Germans from Hungary gets almost no mention that a respected diplomat and academic like De Zayas descends into anecdotal stories makes this book even bizarre.

    7. This book is about the fate of the ethnic Germans in Easternish Europe at the end of World War II It discusses the treatment of native ethnic Germans by the Allied powers and the now old Soviet Bloc nations, i.e forced migrations, genocide, rape, theft.

    8. I think it s important as historians to always remember that just because one side did something unjust in the war, it doesn t make the actions of the other side right.

    9. If you ever want to read about the futile monstrosity of humanity, read this book I dare anyone to read this without starting to feel ill.
