Link to Review Article on the Forced Expulsion of the Sudeten Germans from Czechoslovakia
My colleague Dr. Eric Schmaltz at Northwestern Oklahoma State University has written an excellent review of Edvard Benes, The Liquidator: Fiend of the German Purge in Czechoslovakia by Sidonia Dedina. He provides a lot of good historical background to the ethnic cleansing of the Sudeten Germans. You can find his review here on the website of the Germans from Russia Heritage Collection at North Dakota State University Library. My own review of the book can be found here. I will be spending a week in my Migration and Borders class this semester on the forced expulsion of ethnic Germans from Czechoslovakia.
