Germany to open center remembering post-WWII expulsionsBreaking News
The center, to be built in Berlin at a cost of around 30 million euros ($46 million) is intended as a "visible symbol against flight and expulsions," according to the government. It will be located near Berlin's famous Potsdamer Platz and will be part of the German History Museum.
A permanent exhibition about an estimated 12 million to 14 million Germans forced out of their homes by Polish and Czech governments in reprisal for Nazi aggression will form the centerpiece of the project.
In addition, the center will also document forced expulsions of other peoples in Europe and the fate of refugees until the present day.
