9781403973085: A Terrible Revenge: The Ethnic Cleansing of the East European Germans

The genocidal barbarism of the Nazi forces has been well documented. What is little known is the fate of fifteen million German civilians who found themselves on the wrong side of 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. Some of these people had supported Hitler, but the great majority were guiltless. In A Terrible Revenge, de Zayas describes this horrible retribution. This new edition includes an updated foreword, epilogue and additional information from recent interviews with the children of the displaced.

About the Author:

Alfred-Maurice de Zayas has been visiting Professor of International Law at the Universities of British Columbia (Vancouver), DePaul (Chicago), Trier (Germany), Institut Universitaire de Hautes Etudes Internationales (Geneva), Académie Internationale de droit constitutionnel (Tunis), and Universidad de Alcala de Henares (Madrid). A retired senior lawyer with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, he currently teaches full time at the Geneva School of Diplomacy. For fifteen years he was President of the United Nations Society of Writers and today is President of PEN International, Centre Suisse romande.

Review:

“De Zayas has uncovered testimony in German and American archives detailing these atrocities, adding a new chapter to the annals of human cruelty. His carefully documented book serves as a reminder that many different peoples have been subjected to ethnic cleansing.” ―Publishers Weekly

“DeZayas's moving plea is that one's home should be a human right. As frontiers once more shift in Eastern Europe, he could hardly have chosen a better moment to deliver it.” ―The Times (London)
