Two more links on Germans expelled from Central and Eastern Europe
Eric Schmaltz has translated two important documents regarding Germans expelled from Central and Eastern Europe into English. The first one is the Charta der deutschen Heimatvertriebenen (Charter of the Germans Expelled from their Homelands) from 5 August 1950. It can be found here. The second document is the Deklaration zur Charta der deutschen Heimatvertriebenen vom 5 August 1950 (Declaration on the Charter of Germans Expelled from their Homelands from 5 August 1950) issued on 6 August 1960. It can be found here. Both of these documents were originally proclaimed in Stuttgart, Germany.
