German museum to document Germans forced out of Eastern Europe
The program comes after years of heated debate with Germany's neighbors on how best to memorialize the hardship suffered by millions of Germans left homeless after borders shifted westward in 1945, without diminishing the crimes of the Nazis during the war.
The center in downtown Berlin will include a permanent exhibit on the displaced Germans but also will provide information on expulsions of other peoples throughout history and around the globe, said Thomas Steg, a spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel.
