In what way was the expulsion of the ethnic German population in Eastern European
countries after 1945 an act of vengeance for the brutal Nazi Occupation of such territories?
Call it an act of vengeance, or simple lex talionis, but it's obvious that a lot of people sought to commit the same atrocities against Germans than the ones that were committed against them. Very unfortunate turn of events, because many of the Germans that were victimized then were as innocent as many of the Jews that were killed during the war. But in light of such horrors, people desperately seek an outlet, and this was it.
It was retribution Many Eastern Europeans saw the German minority as dangerous so they decided to expel them permanently from their countries. Of course,many ethnic Germans were innocent but were considered guilty & Nazis although many weren't.
