A book on the little known fate of fifteen million German civilians who found themselves 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. In A Terrible Revenge, de Zayas describes the horrible treatment handed out to the ethnic Germans outside the borders of the new post war Germany. This new edition includes an updated foreword, epilogue and additional information from recent interviews with the children of the displaced.
