Default Ethnic Germans Deported after WW2 Commemorated

Ethnic Germans Deported after WW2 Commemorated


The wounds inflicted by the crimes of the past can only be healed if today’s ethnic German community is given the help it needs, a government official said at a commemoration in Mány, in northern Hungary, honouring Hungary’s ethnic Germans who were expelled from the country after the second world war.

Between January 19, 1946 and July 1948 nearly 200,000 ethnic Germans were driven out of Hungary and hundreds of thousands more were forced to live in fear for decades, Soltész said.

He noted that in the 1941 census, some 500,000 Hungarians had said they were of German origin, but by 1949 their numbers decreased to just 2,600.
